The ranking is published by the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group of the Spanish national research
council (CSIC) located in Madrid.The aim of the ranking is to improve the presence of the academic and research institution and the web and to promote the open access publication of scientific results. The ranking started in 2004 and is updated every January and July (www.webometrics.info)
