Activating and managing online access

New subscribers need to activate your HighWire e-access account. Renewing subscribers can update their subscription details via our Subscriber Help and Services page or via the HighWire librarian portal.

Institutional branding

Bioscientifica now offers institutions the option to upload their logo/brand and name, thereby showcasing the journal content they pay for on behalf of users. The branding appears in the top right corner of content pages (abstract and full text) when users access content the institute subscribes to.

Administrators should log in to their account and upload a suitable file to the HighWire system (size restrictions apply), either through the journal website or the HighWire librarians portal.


This is available for all Bioscientifica journals and can be managed from the HighWire librarians portal.
