Q. How do I create a ProQuest My Research account?


Click on the person icon in the upper right-hand corner of ProQuest, as shown below. Click on "Sign into My Research."


From the Welcome to My Research screen, click the Create a My Research account link. Fill in the fields on the Create a My Research account screen. You do have the option of linking an existing RefWorks account to your ProQuest My Research account. Once your accounts are synchronized, whatever you do with the folders, documents, and bibliographies in one system is reflected in the other. Again, this is an optional step. When you have completed the fields, click Create Account. 

If all the information was accepted, you will receive an automated email from ProQuest asking you to verify your email address to fully activate your My Research account. You should note the user name and password you created so you can log in at a future session.

Keep in mind, if you have not logged into ProQuest My Research through NCU Library for a period of 76 days, you will be notified by email that your My Research account will become inactive after 90 days. The email will explain that to avoid inactivation of your account, simply connect to ProQuest through the Library and then sign into your My Research account. Your account will remain active.
