The Webis EditorialSum Corpus consists of 1330 manually curated extractive summaries for 266 news editorials spanning three diverse portals: Al-Jazeera, Guardian and Fox News. Each editorial has 5 summaries, each labeled for overall quality and fine grained properties such as thesis-relevance, persuasiveness, reasonableness, self-containedness.

The files are organized as follows:


corpus.csv - Contains all the editorials and their acquired summaries

- article_id : Article ID in the corpus
- title : Title of the editorial
- article_text : Plain text of the editorial
- summary_{X}_text : Plain text of the corresponding summary
- thesis_{X}_text : Plain text of the thesis from the corresponding summary
- lead : top 15% of the editorial's segments
- body : segments between lead and conclusion sections
- conclusion : bottom 15% of the editorial's segments
- article_segments: Collection of paragraphs, each further divided into collection of segments containing:
 { "number": segment order in the editorial,
   "text" : segment text,
   "label": ADU type
 }
- summary_{X}_segments: Collection of summary segments containing:
{ "number": segment order in the editorial,
  "text" : segment text,
  "adu_label": ADU type from the editorial,
  "summary_label": can be 'thesis' or 'justification'
}
