Dataset of Indonesian Online Newspaper

This is a copy of dataset created by Feryandi Nurdiantoro ( The original dataset in json format is stored uncompressed in Google Drive in more than 500K files, one file per article. Unfortunately, due to its size, it is impossible to download the whole dataset as one big compressed file (it takes forever to compress it online). Therefore I provide here a copy and its cleaned version as compressed files.

The dataset contains around 500K articles (136M of words) from 7 Indonesian newspapers: Detik, Kompas, Tempo, CNN Indonesia, Sindo, Republika and Poskota. The articles are dated between 1st January 2018 and 20th August 2018 (with few exceptions dated earlier). The size of uncompressed 500K json files (newspapers-json.tgz) is around 2.2GB, and the cleaned uncompressed in a big text file (newspapers.txt.gz) is about 1GB. The original source in Google Drive contains also a dataset in html format which include raw data (pictures, css, javascript, ...) from the online news website. I don't copy it here since it is about 60GB and mostly we only need the text content for NLP research.

Following is the compressed files:

  • newspaper-json.gz: the compressed original 500K json files.
  • newspaper.txt.gz: a dump of all json files in one big cleaned text file which is normally the only one needed for language model training.
