How do I get an OpenAthens account?
Learners or researchers, you will need to speak to the library or information management team at your organization about access to online journals and databases.
Do you work for the NHS?
If you work for NHS England you can access online resources using your OpenAthens account. To apply for an account, first, check if you are eligible. Then complete the NHS England form. When you have your OpenAthens login details, use this login page to access NHS England resources. Need more help? Contact your NHS England OpenAthens administrator.
If you work for the NHS in other areas of the UK, please contact them specifically about access to online content; Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

OpenAthens does not supply e-resources/articles. We are an identity and access management system providing single sign-on to organizations that already have digital subscriptions in place. If you are looking for access to a specific journal, you may want to contact the publisher as some may offer an individual-level subscription.
