Mixed Methods Social Networks Research Design and Applications. Dominguez, S. and Hollstein, B. January, 2014.
abstract   bibtex   
This edited volume demonstrates the potential of mixed-methods designs for the research of social networks and the utilization of social networks for other research. Mixing methods applies to the combination and integration of qualitative and quantitative methods. In social network research, mixing methods also applies to the combination of structural and actor-oriented approaches. The volume provides readers with methodological concepts to guide mixed-method network studies with precise research designs and methods to investigate social networks of various sorts. Each chapter describes the research design used and discusses the strengths of the methods for that particular field and for specific outcomes. Represents various fields of network research, such as organizational and innovation research, life-course, family and migration research, research on social capital, and on intercultural relations Focuses on different kinds of social networks, such as ego-centered and whole networks, social networks within and between organizations, informal and formal networks, and personal networks Provides fresh views on mixed methods, combining qualitative and quantitative methods
