With the globalization of higher education, visibility has become a central asset for attracting resources and visibility. In this context, identifying the institutions that can stand out in certain areas is of vital importance. This paper analyses the visibility of Brazilian public universities from two sources: Web of Science databases and international rankings of universities. Bibliometric indicators are used to detect the specialty of higher education institutions. The obtaining of the specialization profile allowed to compare the disciplinary and thematic orientation of the Brazilian university system and to detect the strengths of the institutions.
