NEWRITER: A Text Editor for Boosting Scientific Paper Writing

João Bezerra, Luís Góes, Wladmir Brandão

Abstract

Nowadays, in the scientific field, text production is required from scientists as means of sharing their research and contribution to science. Scientific text writing is a task that demands time and formal writing skills and can be specifically slow and challenging for inexperienced researchers. In addition, scientific texts must be written in English, follow a specific style and terminology, which can be a difficult task specially for researchers that aren’t native English speakers or that don’t know the specific writing procedures required by some publisher. In this article, we propose NEWRITER, a neural network based approach to address scientific text writing assistance. In particular, it enables users to feed related scientific text as an input to train a scientific-text base language model into a user-customized, specialized one. Then, the user is presented with real-time text suggestions as they write their own text. Experimental results show that our user-customized language model can be effectively used for scientific text writing assistance when compared to state-of-the-art pre-trained models.
