PRS will require one-time sign-in to access via iPad app
The PRS iPad app officially launched to the overwhelming approval of the plastic surgery community in September during Plastic Surgery 2011 in Denver. History was made and a new chapter in biomedical publication had begun.
At the time of the launch, complete issues were available at no charge to anyone who owned an iPad; the launch and introduction of the app delivery of PRS purposefully included a lengthy period during which the content would be free - and now there are fully 11 free issues of PRS in the app library.
Beginning with the July 2012 issue, however, app content will be available only to ASPS members and non-member subscribers of PRS. In brief, the sign-in process will be exactly the same as it is for logging into the PRSJournal.com website. Your username and password will be exactly the same, and you will not have to re-register as a user. If you have already activated your PRSJournal.com account, you will not have to activate a new iPad account.
Here are some answers to common questions regarding the new log-in procedure:
Q: Will the 11 free issues remain free?
A: Yes, the August-December 2011 and January-June 2012 issues will remain free in perpetuity.
Q: Will there be a charge for the app?
A: No. The PRS app will remain free, available to anyone in the iTunes store. The content will be password-protected, beginning with the July 2012 issue going forward.
Q: Will I need to sign-in every time I turn on the iPad and want to view PRS?
A: No. Once you sign in, the system will keep you signed in. You will not even need to sign-in with each new issue that you download, after you sign-in initially.
Q: Who do I contact if I can't remember my password or have a log-in question?
A: The PRS iPad app log-in provides a user-friendly, intuitive log-in assistant to help you. Additional help is a phone call or e-mail away. ASPS members seeking more information or with questions can e-mail memberservice@ lww.com or call (866) 489-0443. You can also e-mail the PRS Editorial office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (214) 645-7790.
The iPad features an intuitive, user-friendly interface. The transition to a password-protected delivery of PRS is intended as a seamless, easy and familiar step. Logging-in to the iPad app is as easy as logging-in to the PRSJournal.com website.
