Mining tortured acronyms from the scientific literature


The 'Problematic Paper Screener' (PPS, WCRI'22, supports the human re-assessment of scientific articles flagged as suspicious. The 'tortured detector' tabulates 12k papers containing tortured phrases: established scientific concepts paraphrased with synonyms, such as 'butt-centric waterway' for 'anal canal.' Some acronyms are even tortured, such as 'Convolutional Brain Organisation (CNN)' for 'Convolutional Neural Network (CNN).' This abstract tackles the following task: discover and classify all acronyms from any given article: tortured or genuine.
