This is a second public release of the arXMLiv dataset generated by the KWARC research group. It contains 1,232,186 HTML5 scientific documents from the preprint archive, converted from their respective TeX sources. A 13% increase in available articles over the 08.2017 release.

The dataset is segmented in 3 different subsets, each corresponding to a severity level of the LaTeXML software responsible for the HTML5 conversion.

This version of the dataset has had minimal manual quality control, and we offer no additional warranty beyond the latexml severity reported.

We welcome community feedback on all of: data quality, representation issues, need for auxiliary resources (e.g. figures, token models), as well as organization and archival best practices. The conversion, build system, and data redistribution efforts are all ongoing projects at the KWARC research group.

Citing this Resource

The dataset should be referenced in all academic publications that present results obtained with its help. The reference should contain the identifier arXMLiv:08.2018 in the title, the author, year, a reference to SIGMathLing, and the URL of the resource description page. For convenience, we supply some records for bibTeX and EndNote below. To cite a particular part of the dataset use the subset identifiers in the ciation; e.g. \cite[no_problem subset]{arXMLiv:08.2018} or just explain it in the text using the concrete identifier.
