Abstract: The exponential growth of online textual data triggered the crucial need for an effective and powerful tool that automatically provides the desired content in a summarized form while preserving core information. In this paper, we propose an automatic, generic, and extractive Arabic single document summarizing method aiming at producing a sufficiently informative summary. The proposed extractive method evaluates each sentence based on a combination of statistical and semantic features in which a novel for-mulation is used taking into account sentence importance, coverage and diversity. Further, two summa-rizing techniques including score-based and supervised machine learning were employed to produce thesummary and then assist leveraging the designed features. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the pro-posed method through a set of experiments under EASC corpus using ROUGE measure. Compared tosome existing related work, the experimental evaluation shows the strength of the proposed methodin terms of precision, recall, and F-score performance metrics.
