Arabic is one of the most semantically and syntactically complex languages in the world. A key challenging issue in text mining is text summarization, so we propose an unsupervised score-based method which combines the vector space model, continuous bag of words (CBOW), clustering, and a statistically-based method. The problems with multidocument text summarization are the noisy data, redundancy, diminished readability, and sentence incoherency. In this study, we adopt a preprocessing strategy

Similarly, we use a k-means algorithm for two purposes: (1) Selecting the distinctive documents and tokenizing these documents to sentences, and (2) using another iteration of the k-means algorithm to select the key sentences based on the similarity metric to overcome the redundancy problem and generate the initial summary. Lastly, we use weighted principal component analysis (W-PCA) to map the sentences' encoded weights based on a list of features. This selects the highest set of weights, which relates to important sentences for solving incoherency and readability problems. We adopted Recall-Oriented Understudy for Gisting Evaluation (ROUGE) as an evaluation measure to examine our proposed technique and compare it with state-of-the-art methods. Finally, an experiment on the Essex Arabic Summaries Corpus (EASC) using the ROUGE-1 and ROUGE-2 metrics showed promising results in comparison with existing methods.
