The big news this month is that we reached a significant mark in terms of traffic. Since we started counting, and for those RePEc services that report these statistics, RePEc has facilitated 300 millions abstract views and 75 million full text downloads. This was after counting 639,213 file downloads and 2,764,484 abstract views last month. We also brought the number of countries hosting a RePEc archive to 80, with the following additions: Belarusian Economic Research and Outreach Center, Istanbul Commerce University, Sakarya University, CEPAL, UNU-MERIT, Econjournals.net, Human Resource Management Academic Research Society, Bucharest University, Kingston University, Université Paris-Dauphine, Pak Publishing Group, Editions NecPlus, Edward Elgar. Finally the fantasy league got off to a good start, with already 163 players.
Also, RePEc will be present at the ASSA meeting in Philadelphia, the largest gathering of economists. You will be able to find us at the booth of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis in the exhibitors’ hall, where we can explain the various RePEc services, take suggestions and answer questions.
And now for the full list of thresholds we reached:
