African universities are still not well represented in international rankings. The creation of the Journals Consortium University Rankings will help reflect the situation in the sphere of higher education in African universities as accurately and fully as possible to compare comparable educational systems and increase the recognition of African universities among students, employers, researchers and policy makers.
We welcome your comments on this maiden edition of the ranking of African Universities and Higher Institutions Ranking.
