Scifinder registration


Individual Registration is required for SciFinder. SciFinder's user registration form allows you to create your own SciFinder username and password. After the form is complete, CAS sends an e-mail with instructions for completing the registration process.

Register one time only.
Use the Forgotten username or password link on the SciFinder login screen if you have forgotten your login details. There, enter your user ID or email address. If you do a password re-set, choose a new password. Don't try to set up an alternative login as it will be dis-allowed.

Privacy of Registration Information

Customer privacy and data security are primary concerns to CAS. No personal information collected during product registration, such as name, address, and phone number, will be given or sold to any outside organization for its use in marketing or soliciting without customer consent. Likewise, the information will not be shared with agents or contractors of CAS for the purposes of performing services or providing support for CAS.
