Abstract: Text Summarization is the technique in which the source document is simplified, valuable information is distilled and an abridged version is produced. Over the last decade, the focus has shifted from single document to multi-document summarization and despite significant progress in the domain, challenges such as sentence ordering and fluency remain. In this paper, a thorough comparison of the several multi-document text summarization techniques such as Machine Learning based, Graph based, Game-Theory based and more has been presented. This paper in its entirety condenses and interprets the numerous approaches, merits and limitations of these techniques. The Benchmark datasets of this domain and their features have also been examined. This survey aims to distinguish the various summarization algorithms based on properties that prove to be valuable in the generation of highly consistent, rational, summaries with reduced redundancy and information richness. The conclusions presented by this paper can be utilized to identify the advantages of these papers which will help future researchers in their study of this domain and ensure the provision of important data for further analysis in a more systematic and comprehensive manner. With the aid of this paper, researchers can identify the areas that present some scope for improvement and thereafter come up with novel or possibly hybrid techniques in Multi-Document Summarization.
