Gephi Network Files, Folder 2, Part 1: Citation Network Files

The 4 items contained in this folder subset are GEPHI files including the original file name schema created by Joseph Miller. Items are titled with either "All Edge"or "Cites In 1 Out 1" following the Justices last name. They are file types for use with gephi.org (The Open and Free Graph Viz Platform) to generate the network analysis graphical maps preserved as image files in folder 1 of this master dataset.


This data subset created and collected by Joseph Miller and digitally preserved here is in support of his forthcoming article "A Judge Never Writes More Freely: A Separate-Opinions Citation-Network Approach to Assessing Judicial Ideology". From the article's abstract:

"This Article is the first to apply a novel empirical method—citation network analysis—to particular appellate jurists’ separate judicial opinions (e.g., concurrences, dissents) in an effort to provide a more detailed picture of a judge’s ideological preferences. It focuses on the separate opinions of Justices Scalia and Thomas through the end of October Term 2019: they served for a similar number of years, wrote separately at similarly high rates, and were one another’s closest ideological fellow-travelers, which somewhat controls for their Martin-Quinn scores."
