NewsRanking Web of Repositories
The Ranking Web of Repositories aims to improve visibility of repositories. It provides a list of repositories arranged according to a composite index derived from their web presence and the web impact of their contents. Data obtained from the major commercial search engines is used to rank 2188 repositories. ARAN is currently ranked at 684, a position we hope to improve on in light of the recently adopted policy on Open Access to Research Outputs. The Ranking Web of World repositories is an initiative of the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the largest public research body in Spain.Read more about the quantitative web indicators used and view rankings by country and institution
