Webometrics 2017 Ranking Of African Universities | Top 100 African Universities

See the Webometrics 2017 Ranking Of African Universities. The Webometrics University Ranking is a ranking system based on university web presence, visibility and web access. This ranking system measures how strongly a university is present in the web by its own web domain, sub-pages, rich files, scholarly articles etc. The central hypothesis of this approach is that web presence is a reliable indicator of the global performance and prestige of the universities and as such, is an indirect way to measure all the university missions (teaching, research, transfer).

The Webometrics 2017 Ranking Of African Universities is based on certain factors. The ranking is a measure of research relevance across higher institutions of learning across the globe. Four web indicators are used to determine the academic value of research conducted by institutions across the globe. E.g the excellence indicator measures the top institutions in the world with the best citations/references from researchers/lecturers/scientist for the past four years.
