The role of stabilizing and communicating symptoms given overlapping communities in psychopathology networks

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5895626
PMID: 29643399
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24224-2
call_split See protocol

[…] We estimated a sparse Gaussian network based on the polychoric correlations between the responses to the SCL-90-R items using the glasso-method implemented in the R-package qgraph. Glasso estimates partial correlations between each pair of variables conditioning on all other variables. As such, we can interpret the network as depicting conditional dependence relations: a […]


Concordance networks and application to clustering cancer symptomology

PLoS One
PMCID: 5851541
PMID: 29538418
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191981

[…] lative strength and closeness scores allows researchers to assess the potential impact of a targeted treatment regimen. Centrality plots and calculation of centrality measures were performed with the qgraph package [] in the R scripting language []. Network plots were produced with Gephi [].Finally, we compute within patient community symptom clusters using random walk community detection, now app […]


Phenotypic integration and the evolution of signal repertoires: A case study of treefrog acoustic communication

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5869261
PMID: 29607035
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3927

[…] ing absolute values of correlation coefficients. Correlation magnitude and direction are denoted by the size and color of the lines connecting two call characteristics. All plots were created in the “qgraph” package (Epskamp, Cramer, Waldorp, Schmittmann, & Borsboom, ) for R version 3.2.2 software (R Development Core Team ). […]


Personality dimensions emerging during adolescence and young adulthood are underpinned by a single latent trait indexing impairment in social functioning

PMCID: 5787243
PMID: 29373967
DOI: 10.1186/s12888-018-1595-0

[…] Correlations between 116 items used in bifactor analysis were computed in R qgraph and visualised as a network plot (see the Additional file , Fig. ). Confirmatory factor analyses with Mplus 7.4 of the original questionnaires showed moderate to low fit indices of the models; […]


Longitudinal network structure of depression symptoms and self efficacy in low income mothers

PLoS One
PMCID: 5779701
PMID: 29360876
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191675

[…] We used the R-package qgraph to estimate and visualize all networks [], and followed state-of-the-art procedures to estimate regularized partial correlation networks using the Gaussian Graphical Model (GGM) for each time p […]


Hubness of strategic planning and sociality influences depressive mood and anxiety in College Population

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5736715
PMID: 29259322
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-18189-x

[…] is dependent on the activation of its neighbouring nodes; for dichotomous variables) fitted using eLasso have been developed. These network estimation methods are readily implemented in the R package qgraph and IsingFit (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/IsingFit/index.html). Having been combined with graph theory metrics,, hierarchical and segregated relationships among emotional-behavioura […]
