Languages of publication
EN is cloud based software for collecting and analyzing network data. It integrates the process of collecting network data designed to support the most common organizational network studies with online network analysis module. It uses a highly customizable survey module to collect data that are connected to online network visualization and statistics modules, hence fully supporting the organizational and social network analysis (ONA, SNA) research process in a cloud. We present several key features of software in the context of organizational network analysis studies.
