In this chapter we present the network-centric evaluation approach. This method analyses the similarity network, created using any recommendation algorithm. Network-centric evaluation uses complex networks analysis to characterise the item collection. Also, we can combine the results from the network analysis with the popularity of the items, using the Long Tail model.
