An obviously challenging problem in named entity recognition is the construction of the kind data set of entities. Although some research has been conducted on entity database construction, the majority of them are directed at Wikipedia or the minority at structured entities such as people, locations and organizational nouns in the news. This paper focuses on the identification of scientific entities in carbonate platforms in English literature, using the example of carbonate platforms in sedimentology. Firstly, based on the fact that the reasons for writing literature in key disciplines are likely to be provided by multidisciplinary experts, this paper designs a literature content extraction method that allows dealing with complex text structures. Secondly, based on the literature extraction content, we formalize the entity extraction task (lexicon and lexical-based entity extraction) for entity extraction. Furthermore, for testing the accuracy of entity extraction, three currently popular recognition methods are chosen to perform entity detection in this paper. Experiments show that the entity data set provided by the lexicon and lexical-based entity extraction method is of significant assistance for the named entity recognition task. This study presents a pilot study of entity extraction, which involves the use of a complex structure and specialized literature on carbonate platforms in English.
