The Cantemist corpus was manually annotated by clinical experts following the Cantemist guidelines.  These guidelines contain rules for annotating morphology neoplasms in Spanish oncology clinical cases; as well as for mapping these annotations to CIEO-3 (Spanish version of ICD-O-3).

Guidelines were created de novo by clinical experts in three phases:

  •  First, a zero version of guidelines after the clinical experts reviewed neoplasm morphology annotations in SPACCC corpus see Codiesp guidelines(
  •  Second, a stable version of guidelines was reached while annotating sample sets of Cantemist corpus iteratively until quality control was satisfactory.
  •  Third, guidelines are iteratively refined as manual annotation continues.
