Use as a research dataset

The summaries from this site have been used as a dataset in research to perform automatic summarization. The summaries were used "to characterize human summaries of scientific papers, and use some of the insights obtained to improve and adapt existing automatic summarization systems to the domain of scientific papers".[4][8] This work discusses that existing summarization methods often produce abstract like summaries which are not ideal because they " are lacking other summarization constructs used by humans such as headlines and figures" which are present in the dataset.
