Activate your JID Subscription

Accessing your JID online subscription

With the continued updating of the SID website…members (who have not already done so) must activate their online subscription to the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (JID).

PLEASE NOTE:  Your login credentials for the SID website will NOT work on the JID site unless you have already set up your account and used the same login credentials there. You must set up a separate account on the JID website to access your subscription.

To check to see if you already have an active JID online account, please go to the JID website login page  and click on the “forgot password” link.  If you already have an account set up, then it will email you a link to reset the password.  If you have not done this yet, it will say “account not found” and you would then need to set up the account and claim your subscription using the instructions below.
