Our goals and purpose

Our vision

Scientific progress depends on standard datasets for which claims, hypotheses, and algorithms can be compared and evaluated. Despite the importance of having standard datasets, it is often impossible to find the original data used in published experiments, and at best it is difficult and time consuming. This site is an effort to improve and facilitate the scientific study of networks by making it easier for people to interactively visualize, analyze, and ultimately download a large collection of networks in real-time to use for their own ideas.

Network repository currently has a comprehensive and representative set of the most popular and frequently used datasets in academia and industry.
