Special Issue on Analyzing and Mining Social Networks for Decision Support
Introduction to the Special Issue:
Mining and analyzing social networks is now becoming a very popular research area not only for
data mining and web mining but also social network analysis. Data mining is a technique that has
the ability to process and analyze large amounts of data and by this to discover valuable
information from the data. In recent years, due to the booming of social communications and
social network-based web services, data mining has become a very important and powerful
technique to process and analyze such large amount of data.
Recently, many researchers are focusing on developing new data mining techniques and
algorithms, or devoting to improve traditional mining techniques for social network analysis.
However, it is meaningless, if the discovered valuable and useful data have not been applied in
real application environment. Social data are the aggregations of communication interaction and
experience of people, and it if useful to leverage this type of data for decision-making. Thus, it
could be an important time to shift the research focus to an application area, such as decision
This Journal Special Issue invites papers of the following topics, but never exclusive:
 Mining and analyzing social data for decision support
 Mining social web services for decision support
