Abstract

Our goal is to develop a new format for scientific research articles, which will facilitate their use in a computer-assisted environment. By explicitly marking up rhetorical and knowledge elements in the text, an attempt is made to optimally represent the argumentation contained within the article. To this end, a structure of discourse segments and their relations is proposed. Applying this structure to a set of research articles could enable the creation or population of a system to visualize and access scientific argumentation within a corpus of research articles.
