Dear Colleagues,

We're excited to invite you to participate in the 2nd Workshop on Scholarly Document Processing (*SDP 2021*) on *June 10 at NAACL 2021* (June 6 - 11)!

The SDP 2021 workshop will consist of *a Research track and 3 Shared Tasks*. The call for research papers is described below, and more details can be found on our website. More information on the shared tasks will shortly follow.

*** Call for papers ***


Although scientific literature plays a major part in research and policy-making, these texts represent an underserved area of NLP. NLP can play a role in addressing research information overload, identifying misinformation and its effect on people and society, and enhancing the reproducibility of science. The unique challenges of processing scholarly documents necessitate the development of specific methods and resources optimized for this domain. The Scholarly Document Processing (SDP) workshop provides a venue for discussing these challenges, bringing together stakeholders from different communities including computational linguistics, text mining, information retrieval, digital libraries, scientometrics, and others to develop and present methods and resources in support of these goals.

This workshop builds on the success of prior workshops: the 1st SDP workshop held at EMNLP 2020 and the 1st SciNLP workshop held at AKBC 2020. In addition to having broad appeal within the NLP community, we hope the SDP workshop will attract researchers from other relevant fields including meta-science, scientometrics, data mining, information retrieval, and digital libraries, bringing together these disparate communities within ACL.

Topics of Interest

We invite submissions from all communities demonstrating usage of and challenges associated with natural language processing, information retrieval, and data mining of scholarly and scientific documents. Relevant tasks include:


Representation learning


Information extraction






Question answering


Discourse modeling and argumentation mining


Network analysis


Bibliometrics, scientometrics, and altmetrics




Peer review


Search and indexing


Datasets and resources


Document parsing


Text mining


Research infrastructure, and others.

We specifically invite research on important and/or underserved areas, such as:


Identifying/mitigating scientific disinformation and its effects on

public policy and behavior


Reducing information overload through summarization and

aggregation of information within and across documents


Improving access to scientific papers through multilingual

scholarly document processing

*** Submission Information ***

Authors are invited to submit full and short papers with unpublished, original work. Submissions will be subject to a double-blind peer-review process. Accepted papers will be presented by the authors at the workshop either as a talk or a poster. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
