The contribution explores the scientific literature of the last five years on Participatory Network Analysis (PNA). It is aimed at analysing interest of international scholars on this topic and discussing studies for the enhancement of community psychology models. From Web of Science and Scopus 1014 articles were extracted, analysing their frequencies over the years in different areas. A systematic review was carried out (PRISMA 2020), focusing on some particularly innovative studies. The multidisciplinary and fruitful proposals are highlighted, as well as some critical aspects in defining participatory approach. PNA has proven to be effective in fields like health promotion, migrants’ integration, spaces for everyday life, policies, learning environments, disasters and critical events management.

Keywords: network analysis, participatory approach, model, review, stakeholder, communi-ty.
