Webometrics Ranking of World Universities - Asia 2016/17

Initiated by the Cybermetrics Lab, The Webometrics Ranking of World Universities is undertaken by Spain’s largest public research body garnering highly extensive results. The ranking system was initially started to prioritise and focus upon web publications, enabling users to electronically access publications and academic materials. As time passed, the goal posts shifted, and the ranking system went on to incorporate a number of indicators for a more extensive, comprehensive result.
