Factors associated with disclosing men who have sex with men (MSM) sexual behaviors and HIV positive status: A study based on a social network analysis in Nanjing, China

PLoS One
PMCID: 5908074
PMID: 29672596
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196116

[…] ere because each index participant and his network members could be treated as a cluster. Robust standard errors were used for estimation of 95% CI (confidence intervals). Data were collected through EgoNet™ (developed by Medical Decision Logic, Inc) and analyses were conducted using Stata Version 12 (StataCorp LLC, 4905 Lakeway Drive, College Station, TX USA 77845).

Developing Substance Use Programming for Person Oriented Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT): protocol for a pilot randomized controlled trial

PMCID: 5732423
PMID: 29270312
DOI: 10.1186/s40814-017-0212-1

[…] focus on the overall characteristics of the network (e.g., density and centrality) and the quality of different relationships in the network [, ]. We will carry out the first step of this analysis in EgoNet network analysis software [], a software package for the analysis of social network data. In a second step, we will compare the outcomes for each of the network variables for the two groups. Re […]


Study protocol for the ‘HelpMeDoIt!’ randomised controlled feasibility trial: an app, web and social support based weight loss intervention for adults with obesity

BMJ Open
PMCID: 5665248
PMID: 29074513
DOI: 10.1136/bmjopen-2017-017159

[…] be performed on participant sociograms and egocentric questionnaires. Sociogram data will be captured using pen and paper and later transferred to an ego-network software package such as VennMaker or EgoNet. Data will then be exported for analysis. We will calculate network measures on the alter level (eg, homophily) and the network level (size, density, EI-Index, diversity, components, proportion […]


Conceptualizing the Dynamics between Bicultural Identification and Personal Social Networks

Front Psychol
PMCID: 5374160
PMID: 28408892
DOI: 10.3389/fpsyg.2017.00469

[…] ionships between their network members. This is an issue that can be solved easily in future studies by using software especially developed for collecting egocentric network data, such as the program EgoNet, that automatically and separately asks the participants about each possible alter pair, thus facilitating an accurate reporting of all possible connections between alters.A third limitation co […]


Investigating ego modules and pathways in osteosarcoma by integrating the EgoNet algorithm and pathway analysis

Braz J Med Biol Res
PMCID: 5343561
PMID: 28225867
DOI: 10.1590/1414-431X20165793

[…] The EgoNet is a general framework for ego module selection, and can be readily applied to datasets with continuous, multi-class, and survival outcome variables. The key advantage of EgoNet algorithm is it […]


Homophily in coauthorship networks of East European sociologists

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5082375
PMID: 27786271

[…] not only the coauthorship ties between an ego and her alters (ego-alter ties), but also the coauthorship ties among alters (alter-alter ties). Technically, the personal networks were built using the Egocentric Network Study Software - EgoNet. Afterwards, the resulted outputs (the collections of personal networks) were transferred to UCINET for structural measurements (e.g. the computing of scores […]
