Ranking Web of Repositories

North-West University Library News

bolokaBoloka (the NWU Institutional Repository) takes the 7th position on the African continent in the latest Ranking Web of Repositories.

Results of the latest ranking saw Boloka move up from the 10th position in July 2015 to the 7th position in the African Continent in January 2016.  Since launching Boloka in 2009 it was ranked in December 2010 as 826th in the world and today the position stands at 342.

The consistent rise in ranking is attributed to big efforts to populate the repository, thus increasing the availability of academic papers and supporting the Open Access initiative with direct access to NWU scientific publications and other academic material.
