DataONE supports user accounts that are part of the InCommon Federation, which allows you to use an account that you might already have through your University, organization, or research network. You can also use an account from Google or the ProtectNetwork if your university of organization doesn't participate in InCommon. To see if your University is participating, try to log into the DataONE Identity Portal and look for your institution in the list of supported organizations. If you don't find your organization, you can use a Google account, a Protect Network account, or ask for your organization to participate in InCommon and CILogon. For help on getting your organization listed, you can send an email to '' and we will try to help make the necessary connections (although the ultimate decision is in the hands of your organization).
