With the constant growth of the scientific literature, automated processes to enable access to its contents are increasingly in demand. Several functional discourse annotation schemes have been proposed to facilitate information extraction and summarisation from scientific articles, the most well known being argumentative zoning. Core Scientific concepts (CoreSC) is a three layered fine-grained annotation scheme…

Partridge is a system that enables intelligent search for academic papers by allowing users to query terms within sentences designating a particular core scientific concept (e.g. Hypothesis, Result, etc). The system also automatically classifies papers according to article types (e.g. Review, Case Study). Here, we focus on the latter aspect of the system. For each…

In the SAPIENT Automation project we have also evaluated the CoreSC scheme and the ART/CoreSC corpus by incorporating machine learning algorithms into SAPIENT and automating the generation of core scientific concepts. The result system, SAPIENTA, has been trained and tested on the ART corpus and has also been employed to annotate biology papers from Pubmed…

Comparing CoreSC and AZ-II

Posted on 4 October 2010 14:23 - No Comments

A key issue in the project has been to evaluate the CoreSC annotation scheme against other schemas in order to assess their relative effectiveness. We compared CoreSC with the AZ-II annotation scheme on 36 chemistry papers. The two schemes are complementary in that they take different views on what a scientific paper represents. AZ assumes…
