Vocabularies that are created and/or edited in the vocabulary editor are not available to the public until they are formally published.  Once published they are accessible for the public to view without restriction at http://vocabs.ceh.ac.uk/.

Only users in a Vocabulary Manager role are able to publish vocabularies

To publish the production copy of a vocabulary:

Open the vocabulary you wish to publish

Go to the Export tab 

Click on the Taxonomy as Explorer Published Version link
 

A form will be displayed, complete the form as follows:

Short ID:  This is an id that is used to generate URIs. It should be short and contain only alphanumeric characters (for example: cast or envthes).*

Display name: This is a plain-language name of the vocabulary

Description: This is a plain language short précis of the content of the vocabulary.

Click Publish.  If publication is successful you will get a confirmation message.

If you are publishing a changes to an existing vocabulary ensure you use the SAME Short ID to overwrite the existing copy.
If you use a different ID, instead of overwriting the vocabulary, a copy will be published

 

To check that the vocabulary has been published correctly, go to http://vocabs.ceh.ac.uk/ - your vocabulary should be shown in the list.

Unpublishing

You can delete a vocabulary from the public vocabulary server by unpublishing (restricted to CEH vocabulary managers).
