Top 2000 World Universities By Google Scholar Citation: See The 1st In Nigeria
WEBOMETRICS just released its December 2015 ranking of Top 2000 Universities in the world based on their Google Scholar Citation profiles[First Edition (December 2015)].
It is my pleasure to inform you that UNN came 1st in Nigeria, 14th in Africa and 1389th in the world. As a matter of fact, less than 30 African Universities were ranked. Also, only UNN and University Ibadan were ranked from Nigeria, a pointer to the overall poor quality of academic publications from most Nigerian universities.
Hence, our collective efforts are paying off and UNN is now counted amongst the best in the world. We are now reaping the dividends of increased publications by UNN staff in high impact and visible journals. However, we are still a long way from getting into the top five in Africa. But it is achievable, if we intensity our publications in high impact visible journals that can be accessed and cited from all over the world.
A summary of the ranking as it concerns Africa is:
