We chose the IPTC categorization scheme, suitable for news articles. https://confluence.ontotext.com/display/GSC/Document+Classification+Corpora
To date, the categorizations comprizes 17 broad topics: Arts_Culture_Entertainment, Conflicts_War_Peace,Crime_Law_Justice, Disaster_Accident, Economy_Business_Finance, Education, Environment, Health, Human_Interest, Labor, Lifestyle_Leisure, Politics, Religion_Belief, Science_Technology, Society, Sports, Weather.
For the next develpment versions, it is possible (and desired) to extend the categorization scheme by appending sub-categories, identical or inspired by the IPTC. More refined categories can result in a more specific description of the topic of the document, but can raise problems with model fitting.
A. A corpus consisting of long abstracts from dbpedia of articles that belong to the 17 IPTC categories, as shown here: https://confluence.ontotext.com/display/GSC/Document+Classification+Corpora .
B. One corpus has been obtained form the ACM classification system . It consists of titles and abstracts of scientific papers published by ACM. Here is the file. Each row starts with CCS, which is the root category of the tree. Tab-separated records specify parths in the tree. The leaves are articles, given as title and abstract, tab-separated. Example of articles in category:
CCS -> General and reference -> Cross-computing tools and techniques -> Metrics
|Measured impact of crooked traceroute||Data collected using traceroute-based algorithms underpins research into the Internet's router-level topology, though it is possible to infer false links from this data. One source of false inference is the combination of per-flow load-balancing, in which more than one path is active from a given source to destination, and classic traceroute, which varies the UDP destination port number or ICMP checksum of successive probe packets, which can cause per-flow load-balancers to treat successive packets as distinct flows and forward them along different paths...|
|Semantic mining on customer survey||Business intelligence aims to support better business decision-making. Customer survey is priceless asset for intelligent business decision-making. However, business analysts usually have to read hundreds of textual comments and tabular data in survey to manually dig out the necessary information to feed business intelligence models and tools....|
|Predicting software complexity by means of evolutionary testing||One characteristic that impedes software from achieving good levels of maintainability is the increasing complexity of software. Empirical observations have shown that typically, the more complex the software is, the bigger the test suite is...|
