Abstract

We look into the problem of recognizing citation functions in scientific literature, trying to reveal authors' rationale for citing a particular article. We introduce an annotation scheme to annotate citation functions in scientific papers with coarse-to-fine-grained categories, where the coarse-grained annotation roughly corresponds to citation sentiment and the finegrained annotation reveals more about citation functions. We implement a Maximum Entropy-based system trained on annotated data under this scheme to automatically classify citation functions in scientific literature. Using combined lexical and syntactic features, our system achieves the F-measure of 67%.
