A tremendous amount of knowledge is present in the ever-growing scientific literature. In order to efficiently grasp such knowledge, various computational tasks are proposed that train machines to read and analyze scientific documents. One of these tasks, Scientific Relation Extraction, aims at automatically capturing scientific semantic relationships among entities in scientific documents. Conventionally, only a limited number of commonly used knowledge bases, such as Wikipedia, are used as a source of background knowledge for relation extraction. In this work, we hypothesize that unannotated scientific papers could also be utilized as a source of external background information for relation extraction. Based on our hypothesis, we propose a model that is capable of extracting background information from unannotated scientific papers. Our experiments on the RANIS corpus  prove the effectiveness of the proposed model on relation extraction from scientific articles.
