Western colonization of nations has long ended; however, it appears that many of the affected people, particularly Africans, are still captive of Western imposed mentality and standards.

Africa‟ is critically examined in this study.
The emphasis on the global outlook and worldwide rating or ranking of researchers, their researches and their
institutions partly prompted this research work. The phenomenon of Globafricalisation which includes the pressure to fit into the Western-imposed model despite the deficit of research support infrastructures may in part be fueling the push for global institutional and research rating by various institutions in Africa.
