This paper introduces the collection of papers in this issue, providing context in the recent development of social network analysis in Europe and the catalytic contributions of the Essex University Summer School and latterly the UK Social Networks Association. While these organisations have provided important focuses for social network analysis in the UK their reach has been much broader, principally among graduate students across Europe and the emergent research agenda they are forging. Five broad themes are identified in the collection: epistemic communities, policy networks, corporate networks, organisational networks and social network methodology. A brief social network analysis of citations from the papers in the collection is presented.
