Hi — chances are you contacted me recently asking for help or advice over email, Facebook, or Twitter, most likely asking for help or feedback regarding a network analysis project. I’m putting this site online today after I received over 30 of these requests last week. Many of the questions are inspirational, and some have led to prior collaborations and friendships, so thanks for reaching out.
However, with my new job there are simply not enough hours in the week to answer all messages in a reasonable amount of time. So either it’s not responding at all, or responding after a few weeks, neither of which seems like a good solution. Instead, I decided to go with a third option and put together this site; thanks for understanding that I cannot get back to you in person.
To help the community with questions, I put together psych-networks.com, which has tons of tutorials on numerous network-related topics; here is a list of tutorials. If you have basic network analysis questions, chances are they are answered in these tutorials.
I have also been part of several overview and tutorial papers that may be helpful, which you can find in my publication list. These can be helpful for more advanced questions. I have been pretty good at sharing the code for all my papers since 2015, and code is usually commented quite well. You can use this as a resource as well.
I have given numerous workshops, all of which are shared online for free. All workshops contain open slides, syntax, and data for you to practice network analyses. Some workshops also contain video and/or audio files. You can find more information here and here.
I am also an administrator on our Facebook group Psychological Dynamics, a place where you can ask network-related questions. The community is fantastic and very supportive, and beginner’s questions are encouraged.
All of that is not to say that I don’t in principle collaborate or consult — so please feel free to reach out to me if you have interesting research questions. But I want to focus on projects that I can learn something from, and fitting yet another cross-sectional network model to data probably won’t do that for me. Thanks for understanding!
