The dominant approach to argument mining has been to treat it as a machine learning problem based upon superficial text features, and to treat the relationships between arguments as either support or attack. However, accurately summarizing argumentation in scientific research articles requires a deeper understanding of the text and a richer model of relationships between arguments. First, this paper presents an argumentation scheme-based approach to mining a class of biomedical research…

The representation of argumentation in scientific papers: A comparative analysis of two research areas
Scientific papers are essential manifestations of evolving scientific knowledge, and arguments are an important avenue to communicate research results. This study aims to understand how the
Use of Claim Graphing and Argumentation Schemes in Biomedical Literature: A Manual Approach to Analysis
TLDR
An investigation of the large scale argumentation structure found when examining five biochemistry journal publications suggests that argumentation schemes originally designed for genetic research articles may transfer to experimental biomedical literature in general.

TLDR
This paper describes each of the various projects: the methods, the argument schemes that were identified, and how they were used, and a synthesis of the results is given with a discussion of open issues.
Argumentation Mining
TLDR
Computational linguistics research on argumentation grows constantly, and impressive industrial applications such as IBM's Debater start to appear, and the ArgMining workshop series exists, annually taking place at ACL, EMNLP, or NAACL.
Traditional Machine Learning and Deep Learning Models for Argumentation Mining in Russian Texts
TLDR
A Joint Argument Annotation Scheme is proposed based on the schemes used in ArgMicro and PersEssays to make it possible to use these two corpora combined and solve the problem of classifying argumentative discourse units (ADUs) into two classes – “pro” and “opp” (“against”) using traditional machine learning techniques and a deep neural network.
Argument Mining: A Survey
TLDR
The techniques that establish the foundations for argument mining are explored, a review of recent advances in argument mining techniques are provided, and the challenges faced in automatically extracting a deeper understanding of reasoning expressed in language in general are discussed.

Discourse-based Argument Segmentation and Annotation
The paper presents a discourse-based approach to the analysis of argumentative texts departing from the assumption that the coherence of a text should capture argumentation structure as well and,

Implementing Argumentation Schemes as Logic Programs
TLDR
This paper provides a novel approach in which argumentation schemes are represented as logic program rules for use in argumentation mining, and seven implemented rules are presented based on analysis of an open-access biomedical research article.

TLDR
It is shown that argumentative zone models and models of discourse coherence do not represent the same aspects of discourse as a model of evidence-based argumentation.
Argumentation mining
TLDR
This work presents different methods to aid argumentation mining, starting with plain argumentation detection and moving forward to a more structural analysis of the detected argumentation.
Argument Mining Using Argumentation Scheme Structures
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the structure of such schemes can provide rich information to the task of automatically identify complex argumentative structures in natural language text by training a range of classifiers to identify the individual proposition types which occur in these schemes.
Representation of Argumentation in Text with Rhetorical Structure Theory
TLDR
A hybrid scheme that enables an analyst to encode argumentation analysis within the framework of Rhetorical Structure Theory (RST), which can be used to represent the discourse structure of a text is described and used for investigation of contexts that license omission of elements of an argument.
Manual Identification of Arguments with Implicit Conclusions Using Semantic Rules for Argument Mining
TLDR
A pilot study is described to evaluate human analysts’ ability to identify the argumentation scheme and premises of an argument having an implicit conclusion.
Generating Abstract Arguments: A Natural Language Approach
TLDR
This paper proposes to use a technique from computational linguistics, namely textual entailment, to generate in an automatic way the abstract arguments from the dialogues, which are then structured in an argumentation graph to evaluate the dialogue as a whole.
Identifying Argumentation Schemes in Genetics Research Articles
TLDR
This paper gives the specification of ten semantically distinct argumentation schemes based on analysis of argumentation in several journal articles, and presents an empirical study on readers’ ability to recognize some of the argumentation scheme.
Processing natural language arguments with theplatform
TLDR
The platform has now reached a certain level of maturity which allows the recognition of a large diversity of discourse structures including general-purpose rhetorical structures as well as domain-specific discourse structures.
Automatic recognition of conceptualization zones in scientific articles and two life science applications
TLDR
The means to facilitate automatic access to the scientific discourse of articles by automating the recognition of 11 categories at the sentence level, which are called Core Scientific Concepts (CoreSCs), which provide the structure and context to all statements and relations within an article are presented.
