Accessing the Members Area

HomeNewsAccessing the Members Area

Existing members with an email address

If you were a member of the BBS at the time of the new website launch in March 2021, then we will have created a user profile for you automatically. In order to access the Members area of the website, all most people will need to do is to request a new password as follows:

  1. Click on the Login link at the top of any page
  2. This will display a login window asking for your user id / email and password. Ignore these for now and click on the ‘Lost my password’ link at the bottom.
  3. Enter your email address into the new window and click Get New Password.
  4. You should then receive an email from the BBS containing a link that you can use to set a new password. If you don’t see this email within a few minutes, please check your junk/spam folder in case the email has ended up there.

In future, just log in using your email address and the password you set in step 4. You can change your  password at any time using the same process.

NOTE: the email address you enter at step 3 should be the main contact email address that the BBS membership secretary holds for you, and not necessarily the one you used to log in to the Taylor & Francis website from the old website. If you are in any doubt what to use, or have problems with this process, please contact the Membership Secretary or Website Editors using the form on the Contact page.

Existing members without an email address

If the BBS do not currently have a record of your email address, then you will need to contact the Membership Secretary to set up access to the Members Area. You will need a working email account, and will need to let the Membership Secretary have your email address. S/he will then update your profile and either generate an email with a link to reset your password, or ask you to follow the procedure described above.

New members

The BBS is a society with an annual subscription. See our Membership page for details of the benefits of joining and details of the different subscription types.

In order to access the Members Area, new members should register using the Apply online link from the Join and renew page. This will request some basic contact details, followed by an explanation of the options for payment. Once approved, members will automatically receive an email with a password reset link.
