Estimado Prof. Isidro,

Como estas? Tengo leído los informativos acerca Webometrics y en especial
los listados de repositorios y portales de revistas.
Me gustaria recibir una copia del documento abajo:

The Ranking Web and the “World-Class” Universities
Building World-Class Universities. Global Perspectives on Higher Education
Volume 25, 2013, pp 197-217.

Estoy trabajando mucho para que nuestro Portal de Revista tenga una buena
evaluación por el equipe de Webometrics y me agradaria mucho recibir unas
recomendaciones puesto que utilizamos Open Journal Systems.

Saludos cordiales desde Brasil,

> The purpose of this paper is to discuss the new developments in the
> methodology used for building the Ranking Web of Universities, also called
> the Webometrics Ranking (WebR) . Contrary to other rankings that ignore
> caveats and shortcomings in order to maintain inter-year stability, the
> WebR ranking is evolving for improving the reliability of sources, the
> descriptive power of the quantitative indicators and the justification of
> unexpected or discrepant results. The paper intends to show that the WebR
> ranking offers not only a far larger coverage, including universities in
> emerging and developing countries, but an evaluation model that takes into
> account all the academic missions as a whole. The current emphasis on
> so-called world-class universities, basically research intensive
> institutions, offers a very narrow overview of the performance and impact
> of the academic systems of many countries.
