- 513 Downloads
Described here is a first attempt to classify citations according to function in a fully automatic manner, that is, complete journal articles in electronic form are input to the citation classifier and a set of citations with their suggested function (chosen from a previously proposed scheme of functions) is output. The description consists of a brief introduction to the classification scheme, a description of the classifier, and a summary of the results of a test of the classifier on real data.
