Second SDP 3C Shared Task – Evaluating Automated Methods for Citation Classification

The need for administering automated methods for evaluating research is gaining more attention lately. The primary motivation for this is to replace the regular, more exhausting exercises like peer-reviewing and the not so sophisticated, less accepted wiser ways of ranking research works like Impact Factors, which solely depends on the citation-frequency. One such proposition is the utilisation of other citation aspects, such as function or importance, for redefining the current research evaluation decision frameworks, The recently concluded 3C citation context classification shared task based on purpose and influence is one such effort aimed at providing a unifying platform for researchers in this domain, to push research further in this direction.
