About Webometrics Ranking of Universities
What does this top ten Universities list in Nigeria mean? Normally, people would say it’s just a ranking of websites of universities and the design. I will leave you to continue reading and see for yourself.
The “Webometrics Ranking of World Universities” is an initiative of the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the largest public research body in Spain.
With Webometrics, web presence and visibility are used as indicators of global performance of a university. These indicators take into account the teaching commitment, the research results, the perceived international prestige, the links with the community, including industrial and economic sectors of the university.
Web design is totally irrelevant as all the measurements are related to the contents published (quantity and quality), especially those open access documents of academic interest or relevance.
