The Cybermetrics Lab is a research group based on Spain released the 250+ Best Colleges and Universities in The Philippines 2015 based on their web presence.

The main objective of the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, as stated on their site, was to promote Web publication. Supporting Open Access initiatives, electronic access to scientific publications and to other academic material are our primary targets. However web indicators are very useful for ranking purposes too as they are not based on number of visits or page design but on the global performance and visibility of the universities.

In this “techy world,” what’s happening in the “virtual world” mostly related to the current states or events in the real world. I’m talking about, if someone posted on facebook about the current event like “Engineering wins on the cheerdance competition on Intramurals 2015,” that reflects what is really happening in the real world.

So the current state of the school is being published around the web. But in this case of the best universities in the Philippines 2015, we are not talking about social media. We are talking about the school’s website and how many searches in Google, Yahoo and Bing Search Engines. How many articles/studies/thesis are published on Google Scholar. Electronics publications of different file formats like PDF’s, Microsoft Powerpoint, Microsoft Word and more.

A university involved in these aspects really reflects that this university is in the right phase along with the world trends. People are learning to use the technology. Millions or billions of people are already using the web to search for a school, or a thesis, or some educational books, etc. And that’s the aim of Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, to promote web publications.
