The Representation of Argumentation in Scientific Papers: AnComparative Analysis of Two Research Areas

论文摘要:

Scientific papers are essential manifestations of evolving scientific knowledge, and argumentsnare an important avenue through which to communicate research results. This study aims tonunderstand how the argumentation process is represented in scientific papers, which is importantnfor knowledge representation, discovery, and retrieval. First, based on fundamental argumentntheory and scientific discourse ontologies, a coding schema including 17 categories wasnconstructed. Thereafter, annotation experiments were conducted with 40 scientific articlesnrandomly selected from two different research areas (library and information science andnbiomedical sciences). Statistical analysis and the sequential pattern mining method were thennemployed; the ratio of different argumentation units and evidence types were calculated, thenargumentation semantics of figures and tables analyzed, and the argumentation structuresnextracted. A correlation analysis between argumentation and rhetorical structures was alsonperformed to further reveal how argumentation was represented within scientific discourses. Thenresults indicated a difference in the proportion of the argumentation units in the two types ofnscientific papers, as well as a similar linear construction with differences in the specific argumentnstructures of each knowledge domain and a clear correlation between argumentation andnrhetorical structure.nKeywords: argumentation mining, argumentation structure, library and information sciencenpapers, biomedical papers, discourse analysis
