RODRIGUEZ-PONCE, Emilio; FLEET, Nicolas; PEDRAJA-REJAS, Liliana  y  RODRIGUEZ-PONCE, Juan. Effect of quality of information on institutional accreditation: an exploratory study on Chilean universities. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.3, pp.368-375. ISSN 0718-3305.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052012000300011.

This article discusses the relationship between quality of information and quality of university institutions. It is proposed that the management of information of university institutions is functional and therefore it constitutes a noteworthy effect on its overall quality. Such effect could be described according to two dimensions: firstly, because information enhances decision making in order to adjust and improve the institutional processes. Secondly, because the dissemination of information of universities is stimulated when their results meet recognized quality criteria. In order to test such statements the quality of information is correlated to the global institutional quality of Chilean Universities, using a sample of the 29 Chilean institutions ranked by Webometrics among the top 5000 in terms of the quality of their Websites and considering the respective institutional accreditation results. As a result, an explanatory model is obtained, where the effect of quality of information on institutional quality of university, measured as years of accreditation, amounts to 62.8%. This means that there is a trend significantly linking the quality of the information with the quality of the universities.

Palabras clave : Quality of information; institutional quality; Webometrics; management information; institutional accreditation.
