  1. The graph type is indicated as D: directed (undirected if D is not specified), O: ordered, G: Graph, MG: Multi graph, BG: Bipartite graph, ML: Multilayer graph. Node types indicate the domain of the nodes, and we distinguish between A (nodes used to represent actors) and X (nodes used to represent text-related objects). Given the variety of existing models, X is broadly used to represent full text documents, parts of it (phrases, words), other representations of documents such as bags of words (BoW), and also objects obtained by analyzing the text, such as concepts/topics. In this table we only indicate selected references
