BIRD (BIbliometric Retrieval of Documents)


>From the overview:

Given a set of pages of interest to the user, BIRD retrieves a set of
documents which are related to this given set through citation
linkages of a particular form.

BIRD also computes a measure of how similar each related document is
to the given set. This similarity measure, called <em>relatedness</em>
is based on the number and nature of citation linkages between
individual related documents and the given set.

[n.b. Mr. Alain.Desilets, chief of the development group, tells me that
this is still an active project, and that the software is available for
license. --gw]

[n.b.2 The site includes a "try me" feature - turns up some interesting
results.  --gw]
