RePEc in December 2015, and a look back at 2015

The year ended on a calm note, as usual. Still we added a few participating institutions: Puey Ungphakorn Institute for Economic Research, Associazione Italiana per la Storia dell’Economia Politica, University of Essex (III), International University College of Turin, International Conference on Economic Sciences and Business Administration, Academy of Municipal Administration. For the RePEc services that participate in the statistics, we counted 416,271 file downloads and 2,093,294 abstract views in December 2015. Finally, NEP has a new report, NEP-PAY (Payment Systems and Financial Technologies). Over the past month, we reached the following milestones:

1800000 listed items available online
1200000 listed articles
700000 listed working papers
600000 listed working papers available online
7000 ranked institutions

Now looking back at 2015: close to 190,000 items were added, in part through the addition of 77 new participating archives. RePEc is now covering, among others, 240 more working paper series and 260 more journals. Several services are running on new hardware, in particular EconPapers and the RePEc Author Service. We have introduced an API. CitEc now offers citation alerts by economists. The RePEc Biblio accepts user suggestions. We counted 5,765,579 downloads and 23,781,746 abstract views over the past year.
