Help Topic: Institutional log in

This allows users to access Cambridge Journals Online using an institutional ID and password. You can use the institutional log in if your organisation has a Shibboleth-based identity management system in place, is a member of a Federation and the Federation is set up with Cambridge.

Individual users

To log in, click on 'Log in' at the top right of any page, then click on 'Institutional log in'. You will then need to enter the name and password provided by your institution. Contact your librarian in the first instance to find out if your institution has set up the Shibboleth SAML-based access management system.


If your institution is not currently using Shibboleth and would like to do so, you need to register with the appropriate Federation. (Federations are typically operating at the national level.) Once you have registered, the Federation will inform Cambridge Customer Services so that we can enable access for your institutional users.

If your institution has set up Shibboleth and users are unable to log in using the 'Institutional log in' box, contact Customer Services for assistance.

To find out more, visit the Shibboleth website.
