In week 7, we introduce the major concepts of network science and provide a hands-on demonstration of how to create co-author networks from Web of Science data using the Science of Science (Sci2) Tool.

Import the .csv file you exported from OpenRefine into Sci2. Create co-authorship networks on the author and affiliation columns, practice pruning the networks by removing edges and extracting the largest connected component, and then save each network as a .graphml file.
