In order to build robust automatic ab- stracting systems, there is a need for bet- ter training resources than are currently available. In this paper, we introduce an annotation scheme for scientific ar- ticles which can be used to build such a resource in a consistent way. The seven categories of the scheme are based on rhetorical moves of argumentation. Our experimental results show that the scheme is stable, reproducible and intu- itive to use.
