The Structural Variation Analysis (SVA) is a computational analytic procedure that aims to identify the novelty of a scientific publication based on how much it differs from its peers' citation patterns.

The underlying theory and a few concept-proving case studies appeared in a 2012 paper in JASIST. The function is now available in the latest release of CiteSpace (4.0 Release 1).

CiteSpace is a freely available Java application for visualizing trends and patterns in scientific literature.

Feedback, comments, and suggestions are welcome.
