The network representation presented the overlap in research interests between researchers of multiple institutes, where the number of common research interests is represented by the width of the link. More details on this will follow.
 

Refugee, migrant, or asylum seeker crisis?

June 11, 2016

In recent years, the precarious and unstable situation in the Middle East has pushed many to flee their countries and seek refuge in neighboring countries and in Europe.

The use of socio-semantic networks in the analysis of discursive fames i...

Shifting discourses of the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve System: Exploring structural space in semantic networks

June 11, 2016

Using semantic network analysis, we explore a combination of structural measures, the structural space method. This method proves valuable for a more comprehensive dynamic analysis of large formal discourse corpora. Formal discourse is characterized by repetitive, and perhaps uninformative top ranked concepts, which makes the more subtle dynamic discursive shifts difficult to recognize. Combining popularity and connectivity potential of concepts in semantic networks, we reveal important dynam...
