This article reviewed the research of urban water and soil conservation in China during the period 1995-2008. Firstly, the period of research was divided into the problem-oriented research stage in the years of 1995-1999 and the goal-oriented research stage in the year of 2000-2008. Each stage had its special research focus and characteristic. And then, based on the research framework, this paper summarized the domestic urban water and soil conservation research in four aspects, namely theoretical basic research, urban water and soil loss formation research, urban water and soil loss appraisal and urban water and soil conservation measures research. The progress of relational subjects and theories was also introduced. Finally, some problems were pointed out and function-oriented research was proposed as a main development trend in future.

Key words: research framework, research stage, research trend, urban water and soil conservation
