Malaysian IPTA & IPTS website ranking according to Webometrics

If you think the and ranking of local IPTAs as published in this blog previously is superficial as it only gathers the number of hits (or popularity) of the websites, then this Webometrics ranking will give you a more balanced answer to whatever needs your curiosity might demand.

The Webometrics 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. It is also called the Ranking Web of World Universities.

Since 2004, the Ranking Web is published twice a year (January and July), covering more than 20,000 Higher Education Institutions worldwide. Its intention is to motivate both institutions and scholars to have a web presence that reflect accurately their activities.

For more clarification regarding the motivations of the Ranking or the methodology, please read the FAQ.

As stated in its website, the original aim of the Ranking is to promote Web publication.  

Therefore, if an institution's web performance is below the expected position (according to their academic excellence), university authorities should reconsider their web policy, promoting substantial increases of the volume and quality of their electronic publications.
