First about last month. CitEc has a new sponsor. We counted 512,345 file downloads and 2,274,496 abstract views, and we welcomed a small crop of newly participating archives: Redfame Publishing, Warsaw School of Economics, Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, Universität Trier. The Economists Online website has closed.
Here are the thresholds we passed last December:
500000 documents with extracted and matched references
8000 online books
3000 links from Wikipedia to documents or authors on RePEc sites
As for what we have done over the past year: We inaugurated several new features: the RePEc Biblio, MyIDEAS, 10-year rankings, a job market paper archive, and a fantasy league. We served 6,819,455 downloads and 29,020,533 abstract views. We welcomed 124 newly participating archives that added along with the existing ones about 173,000 documents to RePEc. We also counted over 4,000 newly registered authors. This continuing growth is quite surprising, as we would have thought that all low-hanging fruits were already gathered long ago. But no, they keep coming, and we welcome them with open arms.
