Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: The dataset is based on an integration of the English Terminology of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Internal Draft) compiled by the People’s Health Publishing House (PMPH), the WHO International Standard Terminologies on Traditional Medicine in the Western Pacific Region formulated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Standard Chinese-English Basic Nomenclature of Chinese Medicine produced by the World Federation of Chinese Medicine Associations (WFCMS). It is aimed to promote the standardization of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) terms and international communication of TCM. We adopted Python pandas package and OCR technology to collect and sort 16,189 items, which were merged into 8,975 items, 56 categories. The dataset can promote the standardization of TCM terms, facilitate academic communication, inheritance and development of TCM, and contribute to the informatization construction of TCM.
