February 9, 2021 |

Webometrix ranks web presence of institutions of higher education.

Tel Aviv University was ranked 73rd out of more than 31,000 institutions worldwide, number one in Israel and third in Asia by Webometrics, a ranking system designed to measure the impact of academic knowledge made available online.

The ranking is published twice a year and was created to promote the availability of academic articles online and, more broadly, open access to academic research.

Webometrics’ higher education ranking is determined by three objective factors:

  1. Impact (accounts for 50% of individual institution’s score), measured by the number of external networks linking to the institution’s webpages;
  2. Openness (10%), measured by the number of citations from top 210 authors according to Google Scholar Profiles and
  3. Excellence (40%), measured by the number of papers among the top ten percent most cited in a given field.

Hebrew University is ranked 165th (on second place in Israel) and the Technion 226th (on third place in Israel). A total of 44 Israeli institutions can be found among the top 22,504 institutions.
