How can I set UNC as my institution in Sciwheel? What is the Proxy URL?

  • Sign in to Sciwheel and go to your WorkspaceF1000 account menu
  • Click your initials in the top right corner of the main Sciwheel site (you will need to be signed in).
  • Click My Account in the menu that appears
  • Navigate to the Proxy settings section. You can insert the Proxy URL for your institute here.
    • UNC Chapel Hill:$@
      • ‚ÄčNote that you do not click on or navigate to this URL--you enter it as the proxy URL setting as described above. 
    • You can check for UNC’s and many others here:
  • F1000 Proxy settings

  • Be sure to click SAVE to keep the proxy code in your account.

The proxy code will allow the Institutional Access button on each article listing to function just like the Find@UNC button.  It will connect you to our subscriptions.  If you are unable to connect to an article, you may need to request the item through Interlibrary Loan.
