universities and research centres worldwide according to the webometric

Disclaimer wide range of scientific activities represented in the academic websites,
frequently overlooked by the bibliometric indicators.

The ranking started in 2004 is based on a combined indicator that takes into
consideration the volume of the published material on the web, and the
visibility and impact of these webpages measured by the sitations (site

Comparable statistics on S&T offering valid, reliable and relevant information


on the performance of R&D can be found throughout the Web, as many
countries are developing their own observatories. Global scenarios involving
universities were recently published by the Shanghai Jiao Tong
University (Academic Ranking of World Universities), or the
Higher Education Supplement of The Times. Relevant bibliometric
indicators are open published periodically by ISI in the in-cites website
based on the data of the Essential Science Indicators database.
