Abstract

This paper targets at the first step towards generating citation summaries - to identify the reference scope (i.e., cited text spans) for citances. We present a novel classification-based method that converts the task into binary classification which distinguishes cited and non-cited pairs of citances and reference sentences. The method models pairs of citances and reference sentences as feature vectors where citation-dependent and citation-independent features based on the semantic similarity between texts and the significance of texts are explored. Such vector representations are utilized to train a binary classifier. For a citance, once the set of reference sentences classified as the cited sentences are collected, a heuristic-based filtering strategy is applied to refine the output. The method is evaluated using the CL-SciSumm 2016 datasets and found to perform well with competitive results.
