To access Datastream, you must first create a Refinitiv Workspace account. After you have done that, please email lippincott@wharton.upenn.edu to request access. The Lippincott librarians will confirm that Datastream access has been added to your account.

After your account has been set up, download the Refinitiv Workspace for Desktop application. This includes the platform software and the Excel add-in. Once installed, you will see a Refinitiv tab/ribbon in Excel. Click Sign in and use the same user ID/password as for the regular Refinitiv Workspace for Students application. The Excel plug-in is only available for Windows.

Some Datastream series are available via WRDS (see access details).
