Help Topic: Registration

To personalise Cambridge Journals Online and to take advantage of all its features, you need to register. You can either do this from the home page or from any page within the site by clicking the 'Register for an Account' button which appears at the top left of every page throughout the site.

This will bring up the Registration page. Enter your details into the appropriate input fields, making sure that you complete the required fields that are marked with an asterisk (*).

If you want to be the Account Administrator (see Help on Account Administrator) for your organisation, you will need to enter your organisation's name, then click the 'I want to be the administrator for my organisation' checkbox.

You will also need to provide a username and password. The username and password must have a minimum of four and a maximum of twenty-four characters. They can be a combination of letters and numbers and are case-sensitive. We also ask you to enter a word or phrase that will remind you of your password. For example, this could be your place of birth, favourite football team or the name of a family pet.

When you have filled in the required fields you must read the 'Terms of Use' and accept them by clicking the checkbox. At this stage you can also opt to receive news and special offers from Cambridge or you can select specific subject areas you would like to hear about. If you do not want your details to be passed on to similar organisations, click the relevant checkbox. Finally, if you would like us to remember your username and password so that you can log in to Cambridge Journals Online straightaway, click the last checkbox. However, you should not do this of you are using a shared computer as other people may be able to gain access to your personal information.

When you have filled in all the boxes, click 'Submit' at the bottom of the page. You will then see a 'Registration successful' page.

Note: if you don't fill in all the required fields, or if some of the information you enter already exists on the system, you will be asked to amend the relevant fields. If this happens, you will also need to re-enter and confirm your password.

If you checked the 'I want to be the administrator for my organisation' you will now be asked to enter your organisation's IP ranges in the field provided. This is an added security measure to ensure that only authorised members of staff can set themselves up as Account Administrators. (See Help on 'Configure IP addresses' for more information about IP addresses and ranges.)
