CSL (Chinese Scientific Literature)

Introduced by Li et al. in CSL: A Large-scale Chinese Scientific Literature Dataset

We present CSL, a large-scale Chinese Scientific Literature dataset, which contains the titles, abstracts, keywords and academic fields of 396,209 papers. To our knowledge, CSL is the first scientific document dataset in Chinese.

Paper | Code and data


We obtain the paper's meta-information from the National Engineering Research Center for Science and Technology Resources Sharing Service (NSTR) dated from 2010 to 2020. Then, we filter data by the Catalogue of Chinese Core Journals. According to the Catalogue and collected data, we divide academic fields into 13 first-level categories (e.g., Engineering, Science) and 67 second-level disciplines (e.g., Mechanics, Mathematics). In total, we collect 396,209 instances for the CSL dataset, represented as tuples <T, A, K, c, d>, where T is the title, A is the abstract, K is a list of keywords, c is the category label and d is the discipline label. The paper distribution over categories and the examples of disciplines are shown in below:

Evaluation Tasks

We build a benchmark to facilitate the development of Chinese scientific literature NLP. It contains diverse tasks, ranging from classification to text generation, representing many practical scenarios. We randomly select 100k samples and split the datasets into the training set, validation set and test set according to the ratio, 0.8 : 0.1 : 0.1. This split is shared across different tasks, which allows multitask training and evaluation. Datasets are presented in text2text format.
