Scope of the Journal 

According to Finin et al. (2005), social networks are &#8220;explicit 
representations of the relationships between individuals and groups in a 
community. In the abstract, these networks are just simple graphs with nodes 
for the people and groups and links for the relationships. In practice, the 
links can encode all kinds of relationships &#8211; familial, friendship, 
professional or organizational. 

Social network theory, the study of such social networks, has developed 
techniques found useful in many fields, including sociology, anthropology, 
psychology and organizational studies. Virtual or online communities are 
groups of people connected through the Internet and otherinformation 
technologies. These have become an important part of modern society and 
contribute to life in many contexts &#8211; social, educational, political 
and business. The communication technologies and infrastructures used to 
support virtual communities have evolved with the Internet and include 
electronic mailing lists, bulletin boards, usenet, IRC, Wikis, and 
blogs.&#8221; 

The great diffusion of Web 2.0 is having a tremendous effect and change on 
the way people search, find, collaboratively develop and consume information 
and knowledge. 

Through OPEN RESEARCH JOURNAL ON SOCIAL NETWORKS AND WEB 2.0, we want to 
disseminate relevant knowledge and fresh apporoaches for the new exciting 
ERA or Web 2.0.
