We welcome everyone back from the Summer slumber, as traffic is on the increase again at RePEc: 607,566 file downloads and 2,172,027 abstract views. While these numbers are lower than for September in recent years, this is due to the gradual tightening of what is considered a unique and valid abstract view or download by a human as we keep refining these criteria to prevent fraud and abuse.
Over the past month, we also welcomed a series of new participating archives: International University of Japan, Universidade Federal da Paraíba, Società Italiana di Economia dei Trasporti e della Logistica, Fundación ARU, Pro Global Science Association, Universitatea de Vest (Timisoara), Bucharest Academy of Economics Studies (III), Universidade de São Paulo.
