DomArchive: A Century of Published Dominance Data

DomArchive is a R package compiling dominance interaction data published over a century of research. The goal of the package is to facilitate comparative research on the structure and function of dominance hierarchies. The archive contains 434 agonistic interaction datasets, totaling over 241,000 interactions. For more information including a vignette on how to use the dataset see DomArchive on GitHub. GitHub

musicnotationR: Producing music notation social graphs

musicnotationR is a basic R package for producing music notation social graphs. Currently there is one main function, musicnot() which can be used to plot temporally organized social interaction data according to the musical notation visualization method of Ivan Chase (2006) "Music notation: a new method for visualizing social interaction in animals and humans”, Frontiers Zoology 3: 18. Please see this primer for information on how to use the package. GitHub
