What is a secondary email?

Our website allows you to attach several different email addresses to your profile.

If you would like to link more than one email address to your Frontiers profile, you can do so in your account settings.

This will allow you to link your submissions, your review assignments, or the Research Topics you are organizing back to your Frontiers profile. In this way, you can use different email addresses for different tasks, but concentrate them all in one single profile.

Adding your secondary email address:

  1. Click on your profile photo and select Settings & Privacy to go to your Account Settings section.
  2. Select Email from the left hand menu.
  3. Type in the email address you want to use as your secondary email and then click on the Add button.


  1. Click on the Validate button next to the new secondary email. A confirmation email will be sent to the desired email address. 
  2. Click on the link within the email body to complete the verification process.
