How to Register

    On the right side of the homepage is a box with the option to Login. Scroll down to and click on the "Register" button. This links you to the next page. You will be registering for either an Institution or an Individual. Click the "Register" button next to "Institution" or "Individual" and complete the information in the appropriate fields. Please note that when registering for an Institution you will be able to enter IP ranges and addresses for IP authentication.

Activating your Baywood Online Journal Access
(You must be registered to do this.)

Once you have registered with MetaPress and have received the page that displays your MetaPress ID, click on "Continue" to return to the Baywood homepage. Once on the homepage, click on "Activate Access" found on the left toolbar. This brings up a page with a box for you to enter your activation code.

If you are registering for an institution as the Administrator, it's important that you use the drop down menu in the "Activate Access For" box and Activate Access for the institution and not yourself. When you activate the access activation number, you will also need to select Baywood Publishing as your access activation service. Enter your Access Activation Code in the field, including the hyphens, then click on "Activate Access," to the right of this field. You will receive a message that indicates you have successfully activated your online journal access and you will have immediate access to your Baywood electronic subscription. If you encounter any difficulty, please contact the MetaPress Support Desk:
