Four modern systems of automatic text summarization are tested on the basis of a model vocabulary composed by subjects. Distribution of terms of the vocabulary in the source text is compared with their distribution in summaries of different length generated by the systems. Principles for evaluation of the efficiency of the current systems of automatic text summarization are described.

Multilingual Summarization Evaluation without Human Models
This work applies a new content-based evaluation framework called Fresa to compute a variety of divergences among probability distributions in text summarization tasks including generic and focus-based multi-document summarization in English and generic single-document summary in French and Spanish.

Finding the Best Approach for Multi-lingual Text Summarisation: A Comparative Analysis
The evaluation carried out employing the JRC corpus shows that the approach which uses languagespecific resources is the most appropriate in the comparison framework, performing better than state-of-the-art multi-lingual summarisers. Expand
ASHuR: Evaluation of the Relation Summary-Content Without Human Reference Using ROUGE
This work proposes a method for automatic text summarization to evaluate a summary (ASHuR) based on extraction of sentences based on sentences extraction, and assesses made to ASHuR show reliability to evaluate summaries written by users in collaborative sites or to review texts generated by students in online learning systems.

Towards automatic tweet generation: A comparative study from the text summarization perspective in the journalism genre
It was observed that although the original tweets were considered as model tweets with respect to their informativeness, they were not among the most interesting ones from a human viewpoint, and relying only on these tweets may not be the ideal way to communicate news through Twitter, especially if a more personalized and catchy way of reporting news wants to be performed.

Concept Identification and Presentation in the Context of Technical Text Summarization
A method of text summarization that produces indicative-informative abstracts for technical papers that indicates good performance in both tasks when compared with other summarization technologies. Expand
Automatic Text Structuring and Summarization
This study applies the ideas from the automatic link generation research to attack another important problem in text processing—automatic text summarization, and generates intra-document links between passages of a document. Expand
Evaluating Content Selection in Summarization: The Pyramid Method
It is argued that the method presented is reliable, predictive and diagnostic, thus improves considerably over the shortcomings of the human evaluation method currently used in the Document Understanding Conference. Expand
New Methods in Automatic Extracting
New methods of automatically extracting documents for screening purposes, i.e. the computer selection of sentences having the greatest potential for conveying to the reader the substance of the document, indicate that the three newly proposed components dominate the frequency component in the production of better extracts.

Extractive summarization of meeting recordings
This work investigates how the summarization results might deteriorate when carried out on ASR output as opposed to manual transcripts, and contrasts feature-based approaches using prosodic and lexical features with maximal marginal relevance and latent semantic analysis approaches to summarization.
