Editor Ranking awarded a second Doctor Honoris Causa

          Last December 14th, our Chief Editor Isidro F Aguillo has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the National Research Nuclear University (MEPHI) of Moscow. The ceremony was presided by the rector Mihail Strikhanov, former Minister of Education of the Russian Federation, during a meeting of the Academic Council of the University.

Number of Universities and HEIs

        The Webometrics Ranking is probably the most complete directory of universities having independent webdomains, with the current counting close to 21 000 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). That means that the total number includes also other non-university higher education bodies so country individual figures are usually larger than the official numbers provided by the corresponding Ministries of Education.
