Get Sciwheel

Sciwheel is available for free to all Duke University faculty, staff, and students. Please note: Sciwheel does require a user to log in from the campus network or verify their institutional affiliation every 60 days. See the details in the main column for how to do this while working from home.

Create or access a Sciwheel account at Duke University. Sciwheel will work best when you use your duke email address to register, as that will prompt the shibolith authentication that connects to the institutional access.

Introduction to Sciwheel

Off-Campus Institutional Access Verification Instructions

Sciwheel (formerly F1000Workspace) typically requires users to log into their accounts from a campus IP address once every 60 days in order to retain institutional access. This is no longer possible for most users, who are now working remotely. Below are a few ways you can re-verify your institutional authorization:

1. Log into Sciwheel using this library proxy. When successful, you should see a green checkmark and the confirmation of "Sciwheel Institutional subscription: you have full access to Sciwheel so you can take advantage of all our features."

2. If you do not get the confirmation above, you will have to contact Sciwheel support so they can manually refresh your access. You can contact them by using the internal blue and white chat button  F1000W chat support at the bottom right corner of your your browser window (you may not see this if you are blocking ads or trackers), or just email them and they will be happy to help you keep your institutional subscription active. You will NOT lose access to your account or to any citations in your account.
