The Scientific Distance Report project consists of a software tool that works with the Publication Harvester (a software tool that downloads publications from PubMed). The Scientific Distance Report program searches the publications downloaded by the Publication Harvester, comparing pairs of scientists to find the degree by which their publications overlap.
The Publication Harvester and Scientific Distance Report software runs on Windows Vista and XP. It was written in C#, and requires .NET Framework 3.0.
The software requirements specification that was used used to develop and maintain the Scientific Disance Report program can be found here.
