The amount of scientific information available on the Internet, corporate intranets, and other media is growing rapidly. Managing knowledge from the information that can be found in scientific publications is essential for any researcher. The management of scientific information is increasingly more complex and challenging, since documents collections are generally heterogeneous, large, diverse and dynamic. Overcoming these challenges is essential to give to the scientists the best conditions to manage the time required to process scientific information. In this work, we implemented a new similarity’s function for scientific articles' clustering in based on the information provided by the references of the articles. The use of this function contributes significantly to discover relevant knowledge from scientific literature.
