Dataset Card for SciCo

Dataset Summary

SciCo consists of clusters of mentions in context and a hierarchy over them. The corpus is drawn from computer science papers, and the concept mentions are methods and tasks from across CS. Scientific concepts pose significant challenges: they often take diverse forms (e.g., class-conditional image synthesis and categorical image generation) or are ambiguous (e.g., network architecture in AI vs. systems research). To build SciCo, we develop a new candidate generation approach built on three resources: a low-coverage KB (, a noisy hypernym extractor, and curated candidates.

Data Fields

  • flatten_tokens: a single list of all tokens in the topic
  • flatten_mentions: array of mentions, each mention is represented by [start, end, cluster_id]
  • tokens: array of paragraphs
  • doc_ids: doc_id of each paragraph in tokens
  • metadata: metadata of each doc_id
  • sentences: sentences boundaries for each paragraph in tokens [start, end]
  • mentions: array of mentions, each mention is represented by [paragraph_id, start, end, cluster_id]
  • relations: array of binary relations between cluster_ids [parent, child]
  • id: id of the topic
  • hard_10 and hard_20 (only in the test set): flag for 10% or 20% hardest topics based on Levenshtein similarity.
  • source: source of this topic PapersWithCode (pwc), hypernym or curated.
