The content and description of each column of LAMOST full quasar catalog are nearly the same as in Ai et al. (2016); Dong et al. (2018) and Yao et al. (2019), and is also provided below. Since the LAMOST quasar catalogs are published seperately, the values in some columns in one catalog may be unavailable in others. The value is set to 9999 in this case, unless mentioned otherwise.

Column Name Data Format Description
ObsID Integer Unique Spectra ID
Designation String LAMOST designation hhmmss.ss+ddmmss (J2000)
RA Double Right ascension in decimal degrees (J2000)
Dec Double Declination in decimal degrees (J2000)
MJD Long Modified Julian Day of observation
planID String Spectroscopic plan name
spID Long Spectrograph identification
fiberID Long Spectroscopic fiber number

zWarning Integer Flag of redshift from visual inspection. 1 = not robust.
Mi_z2 Double Absolute i-band magnitude. -corrected to z=2 following Richards et al. (2006)
NspecOBS Integer Number of spectroscopic observations for the quasar. When there are more than one observation for the object, the line properties are obtained from only one of the observations in which the fiber pointing position is nearest to the position in the input quasar candidate catalog
SNR_spec Double Median S/N per pixel in the wavelength regions of [4000-5700]Å and [6200, 9000]Å.
