A Corpus of Potentially
Contradictory Research Claims from Cardiovascular Research Abstracts
Created by Abdulaziz Alamri and Mark Stevenson , Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield.
Research literature in biomedicine and related fields contains a huge number of claims, such as the effectiveness of treatments. These claims are not always consistent and may even contradict each other. Being able to identify contradictory claims is important for those who rely on the biomedical literature. Automated methods to identify and resolve them are required to cope with the amount of information available. However, research in this area has been hampered by a lack of suitable resources. We provide a corpus containing examples of potentially contradictory claims from Medline abstracts describing cardiovascular research intended as a useful resource for researchers working on similar problems.
The corpus is freely available for use by researchers. Please let us know of any problems you encounter or comments you have about this resource.
