Featured article: An analysis of emotion-exchange motifs in multiplex networks during emergency events

This study documents the systematic structural analysis of a multiplex communication network derived from a data-set including more than 1.9 million tweets that have been sent during five recent shootings and terror events. The authors study the local communication structures that emerge as Twitter users directly exchange emotional messages, finding those which contain reciprocal edges (indicating online conversations) only emerge when users exchange messages that convey anger or fear, either in isolation or in any combination with another emotion.

Aims and scope

Applied Network Science (ANS) is an open-access and strictly peer-reviewed journal giving researchers and practitioners in the field the ability to reach a larger audience. ANS encompasses all established and emerging fields that have been or can be shown to benefit from quantitative network-based modeling. Contributions from all fields of science, technology, medicine and humanities will be considered, in particular from newly emerging research areas formed and developing at the interfaces of presently established sub-disciplines.

The focus of the journal is based on novel or anticipated applications of network sciences, on related techniques that may be used in applications of complex network methodologies, and on innovative modeling approaches that will enhance specific applications and lead to more widespread use of network science concepts. Overall, articles that have a direct application to real world problems form the core publications of this journal.
