 DS44 - nodegoat Workshop: Social Network Analysis
 Pim van Bree and Geert Kessels (LAB1100)



7 June 2024, 10:00-13:00, online

This workshop will focus on the usage of nodegoat, which is specifically developed as a data management, network analysis, and visualisation environment for research projects in the humanities

nodegoat Workshop: Social Network Analysis, Friday, 7 June, 10:00-13:00, online

Social Network Analysis can reveal brokers in your data that have remained unknown. By analysing various measures of centrality (e.g. degree centrality and betweenness centrality) you can learn more about the position of any node within your network. We will use the web based research environment 'nodegoat' ( to discuss and apply various measures of centrality and show you how you can make use of these approaches in your own research project.

Workshop Programme:

10:00 Introduction to network analysis in nodegoat
10:30 Who are you and what is your research question
10:45 Learn how to enter relational data in nodegoat
11:30 Break
11:45 Learn how to perform network analysis in nodegoat
12:30 Learn how to implement a relational data model in your nodegoat environment
13:00 End of the workshop
