How to use the Research Vocabularies Australia portal
Anyone can search, browse and access the vocabularies described in the RVA portal. You can also self-register to describe or upload a vocabulary.
There is no cost to use this service.
Access to the editor is restricted to ARDC partner institutions (Australian research organisations, including universities, research institutes, collecting organisations and government agencies). To use the vocabulary editor (to create a new machine-readable vocabulary) you will need to register. Email ARDC at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for a free account.
Email ARDC at email@example.com to discuss software interaction with a hosted vocabulary
