The long-term goal of this project is to build an annotated corpus of biomedical text, to be used as a foundation for the development of automated anaphora resolution systems. We plan to explore the feasibility of using a community of volunteers to annotate a corpus drawn from publically available biomedical literature. We present issues in creating such a community and discuss results obtained from a pilot study.
