Earlier this month, Cybermetrics released the world ranking results of the different universities and colleges around the world. The Webometrics Ranking of World Universities is a ranking system based on the publication performance of the universities and colleges in terms of web contents, visibility, and impact. This was computed through the external links and files accumulated by the different colleges and universities. The objectives of this ranking include the improvement of the institution’s academic and research presence in the web and promotion of open access publication of global quality scientific results. This started in 2004 and has been updated every January and July of the consecutive years.
