Hedge classification in BMC Bioinformatics articles

Here you can find a dataset consisting of the texts of four BMC Bioinformatics articles, with a sentence-level annotation for speculative language. The annotation was made by Veronika Vincze, a PhD student in Linguistics at the University of Szeged. The annotation follows the standards defined by Medlock and Briscoe 2007 paper, Weakly Supervised Learning for Hedge Classification in Scientific Literature. If you have any further questions, please contact Veronika Vincze ( vinczev at the domain inf.u-szeged.hu ).
