Any future changes must be made from the HighWire site. Also, some publishers require that you manage IP addresses directly through their sites rather than through HighWire, such as American Society for Microbiology and Company of Biologists journals.

You can obtain the usage in one of three ways:
1. Visit the subscriptions page on the journal site and view the usage reports by signing in with the administrator username and password.
2. If the email address in the subscription is no longer accurate, you can change the email address to the one used on your HighWire account (see question on “How do I update my subscription email address(s)?”). After an overnight update, title(s) will then appear in your HighWire tools (in the list of titles you administer at: http://highwire.stanford.edu/cgi/instadmininfo?show=related and in your usage reports at: http://highwire.stanford.edu/cgi/instadmininfo?show=rptMenu ).
3. Add the email address listed in the subscription to your HighWire account at: http://highwire.stanford.edu/cgi/changeemail. (Please confirm with any current colleagues before adding their email addresses. If you add their addresses, they will not be able to create HighWire accounts of their own with those addresses.)
