New subscription members will declare an applicable rank for each selected subscription option.
In addition, the rank of the second year in this case will be decided on annual conversion of browsing results from the entry month to December.
For example, if your institution becomes a subscription member in 2019 fiscal year, the ranking for 2020 will be determined based on the number converted from the number of browsing results during April 2019 to December 2019. If your institution was an Associate Supporting member in the past, or if you re-enroll once you have stopped subscription members, we will set the rank at the re-enrollment based on the ranking of the past.
