Step 1: Sending an association email to the user you want to associate:

  1. Log into the Admin Dashboard
  2. Go to the second tab ‘My Organization’
  3. In the ‘Users’ section click on ‘Associate User’: 
  4. Enter an email address and an expiry date: click ‘send invites’.
  5. An email with an association link will be sent to the email address(es) you entered.


Step 2: Receiving an association email (sent in step 1).


Click on the association link in the email and do one of the following:
  • If you are already logged in to your Springer Link account: Your account will be automatically associated – no need to do anything further. 
  • If you are not currently logged in: You will be prompted to either log in or create a new account:
    • If you have an existing account: simply log in and you will then be automatically associated, as above.
    • If you do not have an account: Simply sign up for one, once completed it will automatically be associated.

Once a new user has been associated they will (upon logging into their account) be able to access all of your organizations subscribed content.
