Within social sciences and humanities, network research has meanwhile developed into an established cross-disciplinary research perspective, which is based on relational theoretical approaches. Thereby, empirical studies are increasingly drawing on the method repertoire of Social Network Analysis (SNA). For Human Geography, the sociological focus of network research can be complemented by spatial aspects in a variety of ways and applied in several fields of study. Despite its considerable potential, SNA has, to date, played a rather minor role in method training in geographical undergraduate and graduate study programs. This book addresses students interested in (geographical) empirical social network research seeking a basic introduction. It familiarizes the reader with central terms of SNA and with essential functions of the analysis software UCINet. The first steps are presented and explained comprehensibly – from data entry, via visualization to basic network-analytical calculations.
