The new editions of the Rankings Web of Universities (now in its 11th 
year) and Research Centers have been published with data collected 
during July 2014. The rankings consist now of close to 22000 Higher 
Education Institutions and 8000 Research Centers with their own 
independent web presence.


Ranking is built combining the following variables: Web presence, 
including general information, structure and organization, governance 
and transparency related documents, learning supporting items, 
technology transfer or community engagement among other webpages; 
Visibility, a virtual referendum about the global impact of such web 
contents; Openness, the commitment of the University to the open access 
initiatives through its institutional repository, portal of academic 
journals and availability of the full texts papers in the personal pages 
of their authors and Excellence, the number of highly cited papers (top 
10% most cited) in 21 disciplines by is faculty members.
