2005 (English)In: / [ed] Sanchez-Alonso, S, New Jersey, USA: Rinton Press , 2005, 87-95 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we present an approach to the problem of evaluating contribution in shared access repositories such us wikis based on the activity of the contributors as denoted by social network measures. An approach to the concept of Wiki is given using models and techniques of Social Network Analysis targeting the patterns of social ties between contributing authorities. A case study in the English Language is provided as a proof of concept using the metrics of degree centrality and group degree centralization.
