Social network analysis and data mining

For those interested in social network analysis and data mining:

A new journal has been launched called ‘social network analysis and data mining’. Published by Springer and edited (among others) by Alhajj, Memon, Batagelj, Carrington, Freeman, Goldberg, Hanneman, Klamma, Pattison, Scott. Largely established researchers in social network analysis and computer science I have the impression.

It sounds like this new journal emerged as a reaction to the recent popularity of network ideas, as well as the challenges posed by the availability of large and complex datasets. There seems a particular focus on online environments. It is supposed to be multidisciplinary but focuses on social sciences, mathematical sciences, medical sciences, biological sciences and computer sciences.

Nevertheless, some of its content is definitely of interest to historians, archaeologists and anthropologists. The first issue includes reviews, an anthropological viewpoint, corporate networks and networks in online environments.
