this is just an explorative email to ask how the portal works.
If I correctly understand the information (BioPortal help) web page, the browsing of the whole repository is free but the use of the ontologies for the mappings is not permitted for the locked or private repositories, such as SNOMED CT. Hence, to use the terminology I should refer to each Organization.
If an ontology is marked as “private” in BioPortal, the content is only visible to those user accounts that have been granted access to the ontology entry.
There are other ontologies like SNOMEDCT that are marked as “public”, but licensing restrictions prohibit us from providing the ontology source files for download by end users. In other words, there are no “Downloads” columns in the “Submissions” tables on the ontology summary pages.
