Webometrics Ranking of World Universities: Epoka University is no. 1 in Albania

February 3rd, 2012

After the 4ICU (4 International Universities and Colleges) university web ranking, Epoka University is ranked no. 1 in Albania also by  Webometrics Ranking of World Universities.

It should be clear, that webometrics is not a ranking of university websites, althought the fact that web presence and visibility are used as indicators of global performance of a university taking into account its teaching commitment, the research results, its perceived international prestige and the links with its community, and with their industrial and economical sectors.

The Ranking is produced by the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group of the CSIC, the Spanish public organization devoted to scientific research. The group is not linked to any company, newspaper or nongovernmental organization. The mission is to apply new  quantitative methods to the analysis of Higher Education and our declared objective is to promote Open Access initiatives.
