As part of the International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications, WOSP 2020 (https://wosp.core.ac.uk/jcdl2020/index.html), researchers at CORE are organizing a new shared task: the ‘3C’ Citation Context Classification Task. The aim of this shared task is to classify the citation context in research publications based on their influence and purpose. There will be two subtasks associated with this shared task and these tasks will be hosted on Kaggle as separate competitions. Subtask A (https://www.kaggle.com/c/3c-shared-task-purpose) is a multi-class classification task, where the citations are categorized as six different classes based on the purpose. The second subtask B (https://www.kaggle.com/c/3c-shared-task-influence) is a binary classification task, based on the citation influence.
