Help guide

A guide to registering with and logging into rightsnet ...


Do I need to register?

All rightsnet users need to register with us to obtain an individual login to access the subscription areas and / or the discussion forum.

Registering with us also gives you access to the extra features available in the my rightsnet area of the site.

In completing our registration form, you will be able to request access to our adviser discussion forums (we'll contact you when your request has been approved); take out a new subscription; or, if your organisation has already provided you with a subscription code, submit the code for instant access to our subscriber-only areas.

Do I need to subscribe?

You or your organisation will need to take out a subscription if you would like to access the subscription areas of rightsnet. You can find out more from our subscription pages.

On subscribing, we will provide you / your organisation with a subscription code which you will then need to provide to those that you wish to use your subscription to access the subscription areas of rightsnet. They can use your subscription code to register with us individually using our registration form. They will then use their individual login to access the site.

I don’t know my organisation’s subscription code

Having completed our registration form you will be invited to enter your organisation's subscription code for access to the subscription areas.

If you do not know your organisation's subscriptions code, ask a colleague who is already logged-in to rightsnet to visit their my rightsnet page. They will then be able to see your organisation's subscription code under My subscription.

rightsnet doesn’t display right for me

If you're having a problem with how rightsnet displays, it may be because you're using an older browser.

rightsnet works best in Firefox and Chrome and newer versions of Internet Explorer (IE9 and beyond).

Using the latest version of your preferred browser will also help to make other websites display (and function) properly and with internet security.

You can update your browser for free via -

NB: other browsers are of course available!
