'Webometrics Ranking' ranks taking into account the volume of the Web contents and the visibility and impact of web publications. (refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webometrics_Ranking_of_World_Universities) Its intention is not to act as an indicator of academic quality but to improve the presence of the academic and research institutions on the Web. QS University ranking and Times Higher Education ranking are the renowned standard ranking scales which take academic quality into account.
In 2013 University of Peradeniya has been ranked #1 in Sri Lanka in research by ResearchGate. In 2010, according to University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP), University of Peradeniya ranked 1426th in the world. It is the only Sri Lankan university ranked under URAP.
