Social network analysis (SNA) emphasizes the importance of relationships among social units at different levels of analysis and centers on the ideas of embeddedness, structural patterning, and usefulness of social connections. Unlike the traditional social and behavioral science approaches, which focus on characteristics, behaviors and choices of independent social units without taking in consideration the behavior of others, SNA views characteristics, behaviors and choices of the social units as interdependent, that is, arising from the structural patterns and relational processes. Recognizing its importance for a more profound understanding of various behavioral phenomena of interest, the organizational science scholars have been increasingly applying SNA in their research. This workshop is structured in a way to cover the fundamental aspects underpinning social network research and its combination with the traditional social science approaches. For this purpose, a number of selected academic articles will be reviewed and discussed in the classes. Importantly, the students will be offered the opportunity to familiarize with the standard tools applied in SNA by using the UCINET software.
