SANCHEZ-MEDINA, Álvaro; GARCIA-VENTURA, Claudia  and  AYUGA-TELLEZ, Esperanza. Analysis and Comparison of the Information of Doctoral Programs shown in Spanish and Foreign Websites in the Area of Agroforestry Abstract. Form. Univ. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.5, pp.97-106. ISSN 0718-5006.

Current information of Spanish and foreign doctoral programs in websites of agroforestry engineering has been analyzed. The visibility of educational offer and quality information are essential issues to promote the interest of the university graduates to carry out their doctorate studies. This information should be accessible and comparable between institutions, reason that motivates this study. For this, 34 Spanish programs and 33 programs from other countries (American, European and Asian programs) have been checked. Forty three items related to the quality of the resources and the results of the program results have been evaluated. Also, three items related to the structure and design of the web sites were evaluated. The most common information in all degrees was: admission criteria, profile of candidates and the number of seats offered. The design of the web pages were generally unattractive, the contents were scarce, and the positioning in internet browsers could be improved in 80% of the cases.
