This dataset contains data collected and analysed to establish a new model of database interpretation for user-centred design by realising the affective potential of patents. The dataset structured around two major undertaken tasks: crowd responses and matrix between adjectives/key phrases/patents. Please read our journal paper “Realising the affective potential of patents: a new model of database interpretation for user-centred design” before understanding this dataset.

The file names are numbered to facilitate the order of exploring this dataset. The details of uploaded data documents are illustrated below:

- Document 1 provides all information about the patent set used in this work. This document contains patent number, abstract and main image web link information of 60 patents.

- Documents 2, 3 and 4 contain all the accepted responses from the crowd for ease of use, semantics and visual attractiveness parameters respectively. These documents also contain adjectives and respective frequency in the second (from the first question) and third sheets (from the second question) of the Excel documents.

- Documents 5 and 6 contain semantic relatedness score in matrix form relating adjectives with patents, and adjectives and functional key phrases with patents respectively. Please note that the size of both of these files is large.
