Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed that the Obstetrics & Gynecology site looks a little different. Our publisher tweaked the site ever so slightly to make it more user-friendly. In the process, the steps to activate one’s online subscription to the journal changed. Luckily, registering is still easy!
1. Go to (I am guessing you are already here), and click on the gear box in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Select register.
