The goal of this research is to design a multi-label classification model which determines the research topics of a given technical paper. Based on the idea that papers are well organized and some parts of papers are more important than others for text classification, segments such as title, abstract, introduction and conclusion are intensively used in text representation. In addition, new features called Title Bi-Gram and Title SigNoun are used to improve the performance. The results of the

Furthermore, we proposed a new model for text classification based on the structure of papers, called Back-off model, which achieves 60.45% Exact Match Ratio and 68.75% F-measure. It was also shown that Back-off model outperformed two existing methods, ML-kNN and Binary Approach.
