Reflections on Studying Signed NetworksArticle

Authors: Patrick Doreian 1,2

Despite considerable success, the balance theoretic approach to studying signed relations has encountered some serious problems, both substantive and methodological. The more consequential of them are outlined along with reasons for why solving them is critical. In essence, an agenda of research problems is laid out with many juicy problems to solve. These reflections, while setting a context in prior work, are far more concerned about looking to the future and identifying problems whose solutions hold the potential for transforming the field.
