Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has been ranked 3 in Webometrics 2021 country ranking. ITS ranking increased from the 6th position to the 3rd position in the country level. The world ranking increased significantly from 1840 to 1089. The Webometrics Ranking is published twice a year. The announcement is made in January and July. Webometrics uses both webometric and bibliometric indicators because it aims to rank universities, not the website of universities.

The current methodology used three indicators to evaluate the university performance, i.e., visibility, transparency (openness), and excellence. The indicator of presence has been discontinued. Visibility, transparency, and excellence are weighted 50%, 10%, and 40% respectively. The visibility indicator represents the number of external networks (subnets) linking to the institution’s webpages (normalized and then the maximum value is chosen). Transparency (openness) is evaluated through the number of citations from the Top 210 authors (excl. top 20 outliers). The third indicator, excellence, represents the number of papers amongst the top 10% most cited in each one of the all 27 disciplines of the full database, using a five-year period.
