About the eBook

A Modern Guide to Networks identifies five core characteristics of contemporary networks and translates these into ten key pieces of guidance for researchers and practitioners. Arguing that a knowledge–practice gap has emerged due to the lack of contact between network practitioners and researchers, contributors chart a more collaborative future for the field. They identify how research can be effectively translated and implemented to shape the future of social networks.

A Modern Guide to Networks highlights the key dimensions of today’s networks, advancing knowledge of how networks operate and how they will function in the future. It showcases the diversity of these networks through extensive case studies, examining experiments in network structure, governance, management, leadership, and evaluation. Combining academic perspectives with practice-based insights, it pushes disciplinary boundaries and provides unique insights into researching and participating in social networks.

Providing a state-of-the-art overview of modern networks, it will prove invaluable to academics and researchers in organization studies, public administration and management, and social networks. It will also be a useful resource for practitioners seeking guidance on how to adapt to the rapid evolution of networks.
