Dear Members,

We are pleased to announce the release of SciSumm14, an annotated corpus for scientific summarization. SciSumm14 is an open repository with a corpus of ACL Computational Linguistics research papers and their annotations, contributed to the public by the Web IR / NLP Group at the National University of Singapore (WING-NUS). This corpus is offered as a part of the SciSumm Shared Task; the last date for registering for this task is today (October 7, 2014). The SciSumm Shared Task is organized under the BiomedSumm track of TAC 2014. It follows the basic structure and guidelines of the Biomedical Summarization Track and adapts them for annotating and creating a corpus of training topics from computational linguistics (CL) research papers.

The purpose behind the release of this corpus is to highlight the challenges and relevance of the scientific summarization problem, support research in automatic scientific document summarization and provide evaluation resources to push the current state of the art. This corpus offers a "community" summary of a reference paper based on its collection of citing sentences, called citances. Furthermore, each of the citances is mapped to referenced text in the reference paper and tagged with the information facet it represents.

This corpus is expected to be of interest to a broad community including those working in computational linguistics NLP, text summarization, discourse structure in scholarly discourse, paraphrase, textual entailment, and/or text simplification.

CORPUS MAINTENANCE: Dr. Kokil Jaidka (Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University) koki0001 at e.ntu.edu.sg Dr. Min-Yen Kan (Dept. of Computer Science, School of Computing, National University of Singapore) kanmy at comp.nus.edu.sg Muthu Kumar Chandrasekaran (Dept. of Computer Science, School of Computing, National University of Singapore) muthu.chandra at comp.nus.edu.sg Ankur Khanna (Web, IR/NLP group, National University of Singapore) khanna89ankur at gmail.com

SUMMARY OF CORPUS PROPERTIES: ​1. Created by randomly sampling ten documents from the ACL Anthology corpus and selecting their citing papers. It is available for download at https://github.com/WING-NUS/scisumm-corpus 2. Organized into "topic" folders. Each "topic" is the Reference Paper, and the folder contains upto ten Citing Papers (CPs) that all contain citations to the RP. In each CP, the text spans (i.e., citances) have been identified that pertain to a particular citation to the RP. 3. Most text files were created from the pdf files obtained above by using Adobe Acrobat. The remaining were converted using the GATE 8.0 open source software. For more details, see the README at https://github.com/WING-NUS/scisumm-corpus 4. Inter-annotator agreement was used to assess the homogeneity and quality of the coding of citances and references, and disagreements were resolved through discussion. 5. The ACL ids and the titles of reference papers are given below: -------------------------------------- ACL-anthology-id Tile of the paper -------------------------------------- H89-2014 Augmenting a Hidden Markov Model for Phrase-Dependent Word Tagging X96-1048 OVERVIEW OF RESULTS OF THE MUC-6 EVALUATION C94-2154 THE CORRECT AND EFFICIENT IMPLEMENTATION OF APPROPRIATENESS SPECIFICIATIONS FOR TYPED FEATURE STRUCTURES E03-1020 Discovering Corpus-Specific Word Senses C90-2039 Strategic Lazy Incremental Copy Graph Unification J00-3003 Dialogue Act Modeling for Automatic Tagging and Recognition of Conversational Speech P98-1081 Improving Data Driven Wordclass Tagging by System Combination N01-1011 A Decision Tree of Bigrams is an Accurate Predictor of Word Sense H05-1115 Using Random Walks for Question-focused Sentence Retrieval J98-2005 Estimation of Probabilistic Context-Free Grammars -------------------------------------------------------------------------
