About Webometrics

The Webometrics rating (or Ranking Web) is a system for ranking universities based on a combined indicator which considers the volume of web content (the number of pages and files) and the visible influence of these publications by the number of external citations. It is a product of Cybermetrics Lab, which is part of the Spanish National Research Council. The methods and approaches for evaluating educational institutions correspond with the Berlin principles for ranking higher education institutions. The creators interpret the Webometrics ranking as an evaluation of the results of the research activity of the top universities in the world. So, the publication of the rating provides researchers around the world with additional motivation to publish more high-quality scientific papers on the global web and make them available for their colleagues, no matter where they are located.

The Webometrics Ranking of World Universities is released twice a year: late in January and late in July. 12,000 universities around the world are ranked in this rating system.
