Text Summarization is condensing the source text into a shorter version preserving its information content and overall meaning. It is very difficult for human beings to manually summarize large documents of text. Text Summarization methods can be classified into extractive and Abstractive summarization. An extractive summarization method consists of selecting important sentences, paragraphs etc. from the original document and concatenating them into shorter form. The importance of sentences is…

This paper interprets extractive text summarization methods with a less redundant summary, highly adhesive, coherent and depth information.

Hybrid Text Summarization: A Survey

This paper represents a Survey of Automatic Hybrid Text Summarization, a tool for reducing the information available on Internet by providing nonredundant and salient sentence extracted from a single or multiple text documents.

Extractive Text Summarization Using Sentence Ranking

A novel statistical method to perform an extractive text summarization on single document is demonstrated and the method extraction of sentences, which gives the idea of the input text in a short form, is presented.

Text Summarization: An Extractive Approach

In this article, extractive text summarization methods are applied to the job and it is evident that the summarization model performs well and do the summary which is very precise and meaningful.

A Survey of Text Summarizers for Indian Languages and Comparison of their Performance

This paper concentrates on survey and performance analysis of automatic text summarizers for Indian languages.

A Survey on Methods of Abstractive Text Summarization

An overall idea about the extractive methods is presented and the focus is on the abstractive summarization methods.

An overview on extractive text summarization

The topic of text mining and its relationship with text summarization are considered, a review has been done on some of the summarization approaches and their important parameters for extracting predominant sentences, and the most significant extraction criteria are presented.

Automatic Text Summarization : A Detailed Study

This paper has studied the conception and trends within the field of text report, which consists of understanding the first text and re-telling it in fewer words, and an abstractive summarization methodology.

A Review Paper on Text Summarization

This paper provides an abstract view of the present scenario of research work for text summarization and the two major approaches i.e., extractive and abstractive summarization is discussed in detail.



Automatic Text Summarization Using a Machine Learning Approach

This paper presents a summarization procedure based on the application of trainable Machine Learning algorithms which employs a set of features extracted directly from the original text, based on statistical and linguistic features extracted from a simplified argumentative structure of the text.

Fuzzy Logic Based Method for Improving Text Summarization

This paper proposed text summarization based on fuzzy logic to improve the quality of the summary created by the general statistic method, and compared the results with the baseline summarizer and Microsoft Word 2007 summarizers.

Effective summarization method of text documents

Text summarization method is proposed that creates text summary by definition of the relevance score of each sentence and extracting sentences from the original documents using genetic algorithms.

Automated Query-biased and Structure-preserving Text Summarization on Web Documents

The proposed system incorporates the structure of the documents, namely the sectional hierarchy, into the output summaries and uses natural language processing techniques for summarization purposes such as identification of phrases as better content carriers than single words.

Word Sequence Models for Single Text Summarization

The so-called n-grams and maximal frequent word sequences are employed as features in a vector space model in order to determine the advantages and disadvantages for extractive text summarization.

Automatic Text Summarization

This work proposes a trainable summarizer, which takes into account several features, including sentence position, positive keyword, negative keyword, sentence centrality, sentence resemblance to the title, sentence inclusion of name entity, sentenceclusion of numerical data, sentence relative length, Bushy path of the sentence and aggregated similarity for each sentence to generate summaries.

A new hybrid summarization technique that combines statistical properties of documents with Farsi linguistic features and considers the conceptual property of the text algorithm and based on word synonymy prevents similar sentences to be included in the summary.

Generic text summarization using local and global properties of sentences

This work proposes a practical approach for extracting the most relevant sentences from the original document to form a summary by exploiting both the local and global properties of sentences.

Comparing Abstractive and Extractive Summarization of Evaluative Text: Controversiality and Content Selection

This thesis reports on the results of a user study which examines the interaction of the summarization strategy with the controversiality of the opinions in the corpus, and proposes a clustering framework for summarization content selection that allows to combine the two strategies in order to capitalize on the strengths of each.

Sentence Features Fusion for Text Summarization Using Fuzzy Logic

This paper proposes a method using fuzzy logic for sentence extraction and compares the results with the baseline summarizer and Microsoft Word 2007 summarizers, showing that the highest average precision, recall, and F-measure for the summaries were obtained from fuzzy method.
