These instructions will help you with login or password problems. If you have set up an idw account, you can log in at the top right of this page under "Login". To do so, please enter your self-selected username (not your e-mail address) and your self-selected password.
If you have forgotten your username or password, you can still log in using the "Forgotten password" function. You will find it directly below the login lines at the top right of the page https://idw-online.de/en/forgottenpassword.
Click on "Forgotten password?" and on the next page enter the e-mail address under which you are registered in the idw system. Afterwards, a link will be sent to you automatically by e-mail, which you can use to log in (please check your inbox and, if necessary, your spam folder).
We recommend changing the password as described in the next paragraph.
If you go to your personal idw offer https://idw-online.de/en/menu with your user ID and password, you will find there, among other things, the menu item "Edit personal data". Here you can change e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, passwords, etc.
You know your password and user name, but the login does not work? Please try this:
You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
