Multilayer Social Networks

 Multilayer Social Networks


We maintain a publicly accessible bibliography on multilayer networks on Mendeley. This list can also be exported as a bibtex file. While the flat list of references can be seen using a browser, we recommend to install Mendeley Desktop where all the references in the archive are organized into folders on specific topics such as "Measures", "Models", "Visualization" and "Diffusion", and where additional functions are available such as the generation of formatted citations or latex citation commands.

Everyone can contribute, so that we can keep track of the many new papers on the topic. From time to time we curate the bibliography by (1) removing duplicates (2) removing papers not about multilayer networks, (3) reorganizing the papers into what we think are appropriate folders and (4) fixing imprecise/incorrect information. We kindly ask contributors to upload references so that curation time is minimized.
