My main problem is the lack of a suitable data set. I need a data set contain many number of papers in .txt format that each paper consists of title, keywords, abstract, author(s)'s name and main text. My previously used data set consist of title, abstract and author(s)'s name.

You don't say what language(s), domain(s), currency, status or count of the papers you are looking for. However, open access journals might provide you a starting point to create a dataset appropriate to your needs. The Directory of Open Access Journals (http://www.doaj.org/) will provide you with sources of such papers. Their list covers domains from Physics to Film to 19th cenutry (Western/European) History to Medicine to Sociology to Linguistics to Translation to many others with overlaps between them. And in various languages including English, and Danish.

It is unlikely that you will find any with plain text format. You should expect to reformat from either PDF, HTML, or whatever file format the publisher uses (for example, several DOAJ offerings use EPUB format).

Regards, Trevor.
