    • Contact your university librarian in the event of problems.
  • If you have a personal subscription on your own account or through a Society or Institute:
    • Go to the PEP-Web page
    • Click “Login” which you will see at the top right of your screen, just to the left of the Home tab.login indicator
    • The Login page will display. In the Login box enter your username and password.  Note that passwords are case-sensitive.
    • Click the Login button
    • Once you clicked the Login box you will know you are logged in because Login at the top right of the screen will have changed to Logout.
  • If you are an OpenAthens user, the links for logging in are on the federation page here.

  • If you do not log out, after 10 minutes of inactivity the system will automatically log you out.
