  4. Abstract:
  5. Today, research on automatic text summarization challenges on readability factor as one of the most important aspects of summarizers' performance. In this paper, we present Pazesh: a language-independent graph-based approach for increasing the readability of summaries while preserving the most important content. Pazesh accomplishes this task by constructing a special path of salient sentences which passes through topic centroid sentences. The results show that Pazesh compares approvingly with previously published results on benchmark datasets
