Dataset Summary

SciTLDR: Extreme Summarization of Scientific Documents

SciTLDR is a new multi-target dataset of 5.4K TLDRs over 3.2K papers. SciTLDR contains both author-written and expert-derived TLDRs, where the latter are collected using a novel annotation protocol that produces high-quality summaries while minimizing annotation burden.

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards




Dataset Structure

SciTLDR is split in to a 60/20/20 train/dev/test split. For each file, each line is a json, formatted as follows

   "source_labels":[binary list in which 1 is the oracle sentence],
   "rouge_scores":[precomputed rouge-1 scores],

The keys rouge_scores and source_labels are not necessary for any code to run, precomputed Rouge scores are provided for future research.

Annotation process

Given the title and first 128 words of a reviewer comment about a paper, re-write the summary (if it exists) into a single sentence or an incomplete phrase. Summaries must be no more than one sentence. Most summaries are between 15 and 25 words. The average rewritten summary is 20 words long.
