The HESA Identity System (IDS) is a single-sign-on system for all of our web applications. This means that you only need one account and then you can access all of the systems which you need access to (including the Data collection system, Minerva and Heidi Plus).
To access the Minerva DQ database, you will need to have the Query role for the relevant stream in the Identity System. The record contact at your provider will be able to grant this access.
More information about registering for an IDS account and requesting roles can be found in our IDS user guide.
Forgotten / changing your password
Access to Minerva is governed by our Identity System (IDS), and you can reset your password and update your details through that system. Support with this process can be found in our IDS User Guide.
