About the Journal

Aims and scope

AWARI is an open-access peer-reviewed journal of an international character aimed at publishing studies related to social network analysis. Authors are encouraged to submit studies coming from different fields like sociology, computer science, political science, information science, economics, communication, and management, among others.

AWARI is oriented to researchers, academicians, students, practitioners, and all social entities from the public or private sectors. We welcome articles (but not limited to) covering topics like:

  • Graph theory
  • Sociometrics
  • Group dynamics
  • Social capital
  • Invisible schools
  • Gestalt theory


AWARI started as a biannual journal covering the periods January-June and July-December. But from January 2021, we adopted the continuous publication model.
