An R-based data repository for reproducible affect control theory research

actdata is a R-based repository for standardized versions of publicly released affect control theory dictionaries and equations, which span nearly 45 years and many cultures worldwide. These data sets can be used by affect control theorists to understand the cultural meaning of objects and events, as well as how these meanings vary across time and place.

The ACT research community has a long and commendable history of making their tools and data publicly available. This package provides that data in one place in a standardized format alongside functions that help users search, subset, and export data in a format that works for their analysis program of choice. It makes it unnecessary for researchers to store their own local copies of publicly available data, and greatly simplifies the process of comparing values across cultures or time periods.

actdata is publicly available. Please see the package documentation for more information.
