Using sentence-selection heuristics to rank text segments in TXTRACTOR

Daniel McDonald, Hsinchun Chen
2002 Proceedings of the second ACM/IEEE-CS joint conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '02  
TXTRACTOR is a tool that uses established sentence-selection heuristics to rank text segments, producing summaries that contain a user-defined number of sentences.  ...  Sentence selection heuristics are then used to rank the segments.  ...  We are currently planning on conducting more complete experiments and user studies on our combined segmentation and sentence-selection approach to summarization.  ...
