Winchester, MA The "The Ranking Web of World Repositories" is an initiative of the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC). A goal of the Ranking is to promote Open Access initiatives and global access to academic knowledge. The Cybermetrics Lab has proposed a new method for determining item level repository item addresses that they suggest will increase both web visibility and access.
