https://readthedocs.org/projects/sosia/badge/?version=latest https://api.codeclimate.com/v1/badges/3e10a47fefae831b973a/maintainability

Installation

Install stable version from PyPI:

Functioning

sosia performs a series of queries in the Scopus database using the scopus package. After configuring your local scopus (providing access credentials and eventually setting cache directories), you can use sosia:

>>> import sosia
>>> sosia.create_fields_sources_list()  # Necessary only once
>>> stefano = sosia.Original(55208373700, 2017)  # Scopus ID and year
>>> stefano.define_search_sources()  # Sources similiar to scientist
>>> stefano.define_search_group()  # Authors publishing in similar sources
>>> matches = stefano.find_matches()  # List of namedtuples
>>> matches[0]
Match(ID='42661166900', name='Fosaas, Morten', first_year=2011,
num_coauthors=4, num_publications=3, country='Norway', reference_sim=0.0238,
abstract_sim=0.1205)
