rstWeb is an open source, browser based annotation tool for discourse analyses in Rhetorical Structure Theory. It is meant to support collaborative, online annotation projects using just a web browser, without the need to install software for annotators. It can be used both online in a server based project, or on the user's machine using a local version.


  • Annotators only need a browser
  • Single mode structure-editor - no switching between linking, adding spans, multinucs and unlinking
  • Import .rs3 files from RSTTool or plain text
  • Export .rs3 format
  • Support for multiple annotated versions of each document
  • Admin interface to manage users, assignments, and groups of documents in projects
