RePEc in December 2012, and a look back at 2012

Over the past month, we welcomed new archives from the following institutions: Université Nice-Sophia Antipolis, Europa-Universität Viadrina, Associazione Studi e Ricerche Interdisciplinari sul Lavoro, Feng Chia University, Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez. RePEc services served 2,235,346 abstract views and 554,912 full-text downloads over the course of the month. And we managed to pass the following thresholds:

800000 research items listed in registered author profiles
250000 working papers with extracted references
150000 articles with extracted references
1500 participating archives

A few additional words about 2013. Over the past year, we counted 26,409,738 abstract views and 7,004,655 full-text downloads through RePEc services participating in the bean counting, IDEAS served 11,473,203 unique visitors from 226 countries and territories (including 3 visits from Nauru, 7 from Saint Pierre and Miquelon, but none this year from North Korea, contrarily to previous years). RePEc added 112 new participating archives, 297 working paper series, 180 journals, 53,731 working papers, 113,336 articles, and a total of 163,479 new items available online. 3,769 authors registered, 4,141 NEP reports were issued, references were extracted and matched from 112,389 works. Beyond this, IDEAS and EDIRC went through a redesign, was relaunched as a blog aggregator for economics research, the CollEc co-authorship analysis site was opened to the public, new features were added to the RePEc Author Service and CitEc, our citation analysis site, and the RePEc Genealogy was introduced. And there are plenty of plans for 2013!

  1. Lol, very interesting observation about North Korean visits to the site! What kind of research did N. Korean visitors look up in the past? Just silly curiosity, lol.

  2. For privacy reasons, I do not think this would be appropriate to check.
