ARDC List of Partner Organisations

The following is the list of organisations ARDC currently engage with.   This will be the basis for creating the user account, groups or project titles in Research Vocabularies Australia (RVA) editor (PoolParty).  Enclosed in parentheses are the organisation codes that will be used in PoolParty (refer to RVA Editor Account Management for information about users, projects and groups naming standard).  The  organisation code  is also recommended to be used in the vocabulary URL for that organisation.


Organisation:  Australian National Data Service (ARDC)

  • RVA editor project name: ARDC Sample Vocabulary

  • RVA editor user: ARDC_Smith.Sam


  • The list is current as at 30 May 2016.

  • It is for reference only and does not indicate that all organisations listed are users of the ARDC RVA service.  Organisations marked in * currently have published vocabulary(ies) in RVA portal (note: These organisations may be the registered publisher of a vocabulary but the vocabulary may have been contributed to RVA by other authorised organisation).

  • Confirmation from the organisation prior to the creation of the RVA Editor account(s) may still be necessary.
