I don't know for Gephi, but if your network has more than 1 component, Pajek, UciNet, ORA, and Visone apply different penalty scores for unreachable nodes resulting in different results. However, the rankings are mostly identical.

Can anyone explain why the closeness centrality values that one obtains from Gephi (0.8.2 beta) differ from the closeness centrality values obtained from Pajek? Does Gephi actually compute "inverse closeness centrality"?
