Our developers have created several indicators, one of which flags up publication volume, that allow us to more closely follow the behaviour of the tens of thousands of sources in our database.
There have been a number of other changes that aim to make the rankings more representative, all of which sound eminently sensible.

The finalised tables will thus be released a few days after the end of each month, as this allows our algorithm to fully analyse the results and also our content managers to do their thing, as they verify all of the rankings by hand once they are in place.
