It is also made available to other RePEc services that may use it on their sites. This may happen with a delay of about a day.</p> <p>Users enter their email address and a&nbsp;password to&nbsp;login.&nbsp; After login, any part of&nbsp;the profile can be changed.</p> <p>Profile changes do not take effect until the user logs off or the sessions time out.
