Third International Conference & Workshop on University Web Rankings

Sala Menéndez Pidal 0E18
The 3rd edition of the International Conference & Workshop is a practically oriented event, with the aim of informing the Universities' end-users how to improve their performance, what is the impact of good practices and what are the advantages of long-term strategies. A ranking should be informative and useful and it is important to provide ethical guidance for a correct representation of the overall university and all its missions. Institutional Open Access repositories will be also a hot topic. 
Attendance is open and free of charge.
