SIGARRA News Corpus

This dataset was taken from the SIGARRA information system at the University of Porto (UP). Every organic unit has its own domain and produces academic news. We collected a sample of 1000 news, manually annotating 905 using the Brat rapid annotation tool. This dataset consists of three files. The first is a CSV file containing news published between 2016-12-14 and 2017-03-01. The second file is a ZIP archive containing one directory per organic unit, with a text file and an annotations file per news article. The third file is an XML containing the complete set of news in a similar format to the HAREM dataset format. This dataset is particularly adequate for training named entity recognition models.
