Research Pass

Support for you and your users when accessing Emerald Insight content using Research Pass tokens

Research Pass gives users the flexibility to access the content they need, without taking out a costly subscription.

On this page you’ll find a number of resources aimed at helping you and your users get the most out of Emerald content, including the Account Management Portal, our sector-specific pages, and our user guides.

Using the Account Management Portal (AMP)

The AMP allows the administrator to manage all resources in one place, using their own user profile. Within the administrator portal you can see how many tokens you have left, check authentication settings and manage your account details. You can also run reports to see where tokens have been used and on what content.

If you are not yet set up as an administrator, first you need to register a user profile at then contact Customer Support so that we can link your user profile to the Emerald account. Once this has been confirmed, you will be able to log in to the AMP.

Using Research Pass tokens to access content

In most cases, for users to access content with Research Pass tokens, they will first need to create a profile on Emerald Insight which will then be associated to your organisation. Then, once they have found a piece of content to view or download, they will simply click ‘Other access options’ and select ‘Use a token’.

This video shows the complete journey for using a token to access content for users who access through an Insight profile. If your users will access content through a Shibboleth / OpenAthens login, please contact your Business Manager for guidance. We have also produced user guides showing the step-by-step process:
