Scientific journal
Printed copy of AOGS (Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica) to NFOG members has been limited.


As of 2013 we have moved our 92-year old publication into the present and the future by moving to a largely online-only distribution of the journal for as many of the nfog-members as possible in accord with widespread modern practice.

We therefore encourage all NFOG-members to register for online access to AOGS which you are entitled to as a member of NFOG.
If you as a member want the printed copy then please contact your national society.
