Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to promote a special issue of ANS about Networked Inequality: Studies on Diversity and Marginalization. For the full call and submission details, see


This special issue aims to attract innovative original research that applies network science to study human inequality. The basis for inequality may be gender, race, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, ability, and/or other factors that lead to marginalization. We invite submissions that use network science theories and methods from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds and approaches, including (not limited to) social sciences, physics, humanities, computer science, mathematics, and geographical sciences. We also particularly encourage multidisciplinary works.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  •  Social Mobility
  • Epidemics
  • Metapopulation models
  • Inequalities, Gaps and Differences (e.g. Gender, Race, Socioeconomic, Age)
  • Social Movements and activism
  • Misinformation and Media Manipulation 
  • COVID-19 impact
  • Economic Inequality 
  • School and Educational Networks
  • Organizational Networks and Career Success
  • Evidence-based policy-making and network science
  •  Scientific networks
  • Brain networks
  • Knowledge flow, sharing, and collaboration
  • Ego, Multilayer and multiplex network analysis

We look forward to your contributions and are happy to answer any questions regarding your potential contribution.


Our best regards during these times,


Brooke Foucault Welles (Northeastern University), Olga L. Sarmiento (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia), Mariana Macedo (University of Exeter), and Ana Maria Jaramillo (University of Exeter)
