RePEc in October 2017

A group of RePEc volunteers met last month in St. Louis and discussed for two days all sorts of issues. Over the next months, users will notice changes resulting from that meeting. For starters, we have


  1. reworked the conditions for the use of RePEc data,
  2. opened up some of our internal mailing lists to allow others to participate in the discussions,
  3. created a wiki for RePEc,
  4. opened a GitHub account,
  5. have now an official Twitter account.

Speaking of Twitter, we have now listings of economists on Twitter by country. In more regular business, we have counted 567,065 file downloads and 1,920,977 abstract views and welcomed the following new archives: Bank of Korea, Fondazione Luigi Einaudi, Journal of Mechanism and Institutional Design, National Bank of Ukraine, Gebze Technical University, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, and Universitas Gadjah Mada. As for the milestones we have reached, we have

2,400,000 listed items
4,000 books with extracted references
1,000 economists with linked Twitter account
125 topics on RePEc Biblio
