AbstractThe analysis of the web presence of the universities by means of cybermetric indicators has been shown as a relevant tool for evaluation purposes. The developing countries in Latin-American are making a great effort for publishing electronically their academic and scientific results. Previous studies done in 2001 about Brazilian Universities pointed out that these institutions were leaders for both the region and the Portuguese speaking community. A new data compilation done in the first months of 2006 identify an exponential increase of the size of the universities’ web domains. There is also an important increase in the web visibility of these academic sites, but clearly of much lower magnitude. After five years Brazil is still leader but it is not closing the digital divide with developed world universities.
