Makerere University Vice chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has protested the latest ranking of the university in research.
A report has ranked Makerere third in research among 40 universities in the sub-Saharan region.
According to Nawangwe, Makerere University is the second university in research on the continent hence it is impossible that the university is ranked third in this particular report.
He says their only competitor is the University of Cape Town asserting that if someone has displaced them, it is because the research was done on a particular discipline.
According to the findings that were conducted by professors from the University of Cambridge, most research was conducted on primary education followed by research on secondary education and on early childhood education research.
No institution published more than two articles on vocational education.
