The ACL Anthology Network (AAN)1 is a comprehensive manually curated networked database of citations and collaborations in the field of Computational Linguistics. Each cita- tion edge in AAN is associated with one or more citing sentences. A citing sentence is one that appears in a scientific article and con- tains an explicit reference to another article. In this paper, we shed the light on the usefulness of AAN citing sentences for understanding re- search trends and summarizing previous dis- coveries and contributions. We also propose and motivate several different uses and appli- cations of citing sentences.
