Statnet software has been in continuous development since the early 2000s. All of our software is open source (GPL-3) and development is ongoing.
Packages are developed and maintained by the Statnet Development Team on GitHub in a set of repositories under the GitHub statnet organization. The key repositories are public and have corresponding packages released on CRAN.
We welcome bug reports, comments, suggestions or feature requests; please report these by filing a GitHub issue on the appropriate repository.
Packages are published to the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).
Many packages have expository articles published in the Journal of Statistical Software.
Most packages have a dedicated training workshop, with the materials posted online for self-learning (see the Workshops tab).
If you use Statnet, please cite it. Information can be found on the Citing statnet tab.

The CRAN ecosystem provides a platform for independently written extensions from the
statnet packages. A partial list of packages that rely on the
statnet foundation is below. A complete list can be found by checking the reverse dependencies of all of our packages, and the Shiny app
cran-explorer can be used to visualize the dependency network.
