The research background and related research work about Document Clustering Description (DCD) are given in this paper. The relationship between DCD and automatic indexing, automatic summarization, conceptual clustering is explained and the research content of DCD is definited. According to its requirements, the tasks of DCD are formalized. The evaluation methods of DCD are also described in this paper.
