Abstract

Recently, we came across the paper entitled “Quantification of network structural dissimilarities” published by Nature Communications. In this paper, Schieber et al claimed to propose a novel technique for measuring the structural similarity of networks. The authors of this commentary are familiar with this special area of network analysis. After reading the paper, we doubt that the graph similarity (distance) measure due to Schieber et al is entirely novel. Instead, parts thereof are very similar to contributions we have authored. Unfortunately, they have not been cited nor acknowledged in Schieber et al.
