Refinitiv Workspace

Includes information on registering for a Workspace account, installing the Workspace desktop app, and accessing Datastream and SDC Platinum.

Account Registration - New Users

To access Datastream*, Thomson One Banker, Mergers & Acquisitions, or VentureXpert Web, you'll need to first create a Refinitiv Workspace account using the self registration link.

Those wanting access to Datastream or SDC data will need to request additional permissions once they've complete their Refinitiv Workspace account registration.

Access Refinitiv Workspace - Existing Users

Once your account has been created, you can either sign into your Refinitiv Workspace account via a web browser or download the desktop app. Please note that if you plan to use the Excel add-in you will need to download the desktop app.

Notice: If you're using the desktop app, you may need to install the latest version (1.20) of the software using the link below.
