Have you ever wondered how you could analyse relations between individuals, companies, organisations, web pages or any other set of entities? Then this workshop on network analysis and the software tool Gephi may be of interest to you. The aim of the workshop is threefold: (1) To briefly introduce to network analysis as a method within the social sciences and within studies of hyperlinks on the online web; (2) To introduce to the specific challenges related to making hyperlink and network analysis of the archived web; (3) To introduce the basics of the network analysis software tool Gephi (

The workshop will be a mix of presentations about theories of network analysis as a method and about the software, combined with individual and joint exercises, including hands-on experience in using the software. For the exercises one dataset will be constructed at the workshop, and another dataset of archived hyperlinks will be provided. Exercises will be as generic as possible so that the insights they generate can be used in the participants own research projects or teaching.

Key take-aways

After the workshop you will have a general understanding of network analysis, and you will be able to perform basic network analyses of hyperlinks and other entities using Gephi. The workshop is relevant for anyone who wants to dig into network analysis and Gephi. Given that focus is also on the archived web it is an advantage if participants have attended NetLab’s general workshop on the archived web, but this is not mandatory. Depending on the participants the workshop will be in either English or Danish.
