An annotation scheme for citation function

Teufel, Simone; Siddharthan, Advaith and Tidhar, Dan (2006). An annotation scheme for citation function. In: Proceedings of the 7th SIGdial Workshop on Discourse and Dialogue, 2006, pp. 80–87.



We study the interplay of the discourse structure of a scientific argument with formal citations. One subproblem of this is to classify academic citations in scientific articles according to their rhetorical function, e.g., as a rival approach, as a part of the solution, or as a flawed approach that justifies the current research. Here, we introduce our annotation scheme with 12 categories, and present an agreement study.
