Dear all:

You can check the Excellence indicator (papers in the 10% top cited) 
that Paris 6 is 28th and Paris XI is 98th so the reasons for the delayed 
ranks are related to the web presence. Language is an important issue as 
English-speaking countries are clearly over-represented but it is not 
the only reason. Perhaps interesting to this list is that the commitment 
to open access is limited. You can check the performance of the French 
university repositories here:


It is very surprising that in some cases they have surrendered their own 
web domains in their "institutional" repositories. A few examples:

École Polytechnique http://hal-polytechnique.archives-ouvertes.fr/
Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne 
École Mines ParisTech    http://hal-ensmp.archives-ouvertes.fr/
Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis http://hal-unice.archives-ouvertes.fr/

Of course this practice is penalizing their position in the Ranking.
