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  services@ardc.edu.au  to sign up for a free account.
