Social Network Analysis is an increasingly important part of a broader ‘toolbox’ of evaluation methods available to R&D policymakers to support decision-making. The aim of this document is to be an accessible, ‘beginner’s guide’ to social network theory and application in the area of mobile telecommunication research and development (R&D) decision-making. As this research was intended for suggesting the methodology of investigating into new technology through science and technology information resources, a meaningful approach was, in fact, introduced by this research, and the methodology suggested by this research is believed to be a meaningful first step toward the establishment of the information analysis structure, which is in desperate need.
