Registration, updating my account and lost password help

Registering for ADS-easy is as the name suggests easy and is merely the case of filling in a simple form. In order to create an account we need an email address (this will become the login for your ADS-easy account) and password, alongside some contact details for you and the organisation you represent (if appropriate).

Why do you need my ORCHID?

‘ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.’ If you already have an ORCHID then please include this in your registration details and where possible we will link your archives with this identifier and your ORCHID record. If you do not have an ORCHID, then you can register for one for free by visiting the ORCHID website.

Why do I need to agree to the terms and conditions?

By registering and creating a project you are entering into a business arrangement with the ADS where the ultimate aim is that you data will be deposited with us. ADS-easy should not be used as a tool to store data indefinitely as we will remove data and projects which have been inactive for long periods of time. ADS-easy is merely a mechanism whereby people can upload data for deposit with the ADS. If you are not sure whetherv or not you should be using ADS-easy then please contact us and we will help clarify the situation.

Updating your password and registration details

Any updates to passwords and other personal information can be made through the 'account details' section once you have logged in to ADS-easy. Once you have updated your details remember to 'save' them at the bottom of the page.

Updating your log in/email address

If you need to update your log in/email address then you will need to contact the ADS directly.

Deleting your ADS-easy account

Should you wish to delete your account please contact us. As part of this process we will remove your details alongside any incomplete depositions and data which has been uploaded to ADS-easy. Those depositions which have been completed and exported from ADS-easy will be continue to be made available through the ADS website.
