  2. 2. 2 Scope of topics Knowledge is increasingly crowd-sourced, through networked individuals, groups and organizations on digital media. The traditional innovation through a triple helix of university- industry-government collaboration has been shifted with the wide adoption of social media. Specifically, in the recent open data movement, government agencies have joined the ranks to collect and share large-scale public data. In developed Asian economies, South Korea for example, this trend is described as “Government 3.0” – a government initiative to promote 'creative economy' by making public information accessible to all innovation stakeholders. Scholars are catching up to understand how institutional arrangements and communication flows induce emergent knowledge-intensive clusters and networked innovations. Progress in network science and the theory of Triple Helix have provided the foundation to understand the networked innovation. However, even with the general agreement that innovation occurs through social networks, few studies offer empirical evidence of the casual link between networks and innovations. While the existent studies have utilized large samples and sophisticated statistical analyses, the findings are largely descriptive rather than explanatory, and oftentimes based on only a visualization of network diagrams. Additionally, a stark gap in the literature is the lack of qualitative insights – a thick description and interepretation of symbols and meanings generated in collaboration. We reckon that big data do not necessarily mean smart data. A complete picture requires both network science and qualitative analyses. Therefore, this special issue welcomes original work in the junction of network science, triple helix theories and social media. We pay specific attention to interdisciplinary studies that combine both quantitative and qualitative approaches, theories and practices. Specially, we look for:  Comparative analysis: comparing different types of innovation networks; identifying effective innovation models or processes across different knowledge stakeholders.  Longitudinal analysis: exploring the gradual creation and mobilization of various stakeholders through internal and external interactions; understating the evolutionary process of innovation network.  Case study; identifying the case of success (as well as failure) within the context of networked innovation; understanding how organizations manage knowledge between multiple stakeholders; understanding the difference of transmitting or co-creating different types of knowledge (e.g., explicit and implicit knowledge, intellectual properties).  Interpretive approach: understanding the roles of symbolic interactions within the context of networked innovation among multiple actors; understanding metaphors and stories that can foster or hinder networked innovations.  Mixed methods approaches and applications: Designing mixed methods research and its applications  Theories and their applicability to the study of networked innovation (e.g., community of practice, complexity theory, hermeneutic phenomenology, grounded theory)
