A Spanish research group called the Cybermetrics Lab has ranked Mason number 86 in the world on its “webometrics” list, which measures the impact and performance of universities through their web presence.

A total of 4,000 universities worldwide are on the list; Mason ranks 70 on the list that includes only U.S. and Canadian universities.

According to the Cybermetrics Lab, its purpose in publishing the rankings is to “provide extra motivation to researchers worldwide for publishing more and better scientific content on the web, making it available to colleagues and people wherever they are located.”
