The ranking of Webometrics universities (Webometrics Ranking of World Universities) is calculated by the Cybermetrics research group, which is the part of the National Research Council of Spain. Webometrics analyzes the presence of universities on the Internet, including scientific publications. According to the developers of the rating, the indicators used allow us to create a fairly complete picture of the activities of university teachers and researchers. Due to the fact that indicators are not calculated manually, but are found from various information systems on the Internet, the Webometrics ranking includes an order of magnitude more universities than the Shanghai ranking, THE or QS.
