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.

Many current DSpace instances that are now included in the Ranking will be excluded if this proposal is implemented. To comment on these proposals email the editor at isidro.aguillo@csic.es These proposed changes will be open for discussion until the next edition of the ranking scheduled for late January 2015.
