The big news this month is the redesign of IDEAS. Beyond the more modern and functional look, there are a few new features: MyIDEAS now sends weekly email digests to those who want to stay current about the authors, serial, JEL codes or keywords they follow; search can now sort by number of citations or how recently an item was added; new rankings, in particular covering only the 10 last years of publications (and the top 10 authors for each institution); and more little tweaks. The layout of EDIRC has also been upgraded.
In other news: We have welcomed a few new RePEc archives: National University for Political Studies and Public Administration, Brazilian Journal of Political Economy, NYU Abu Dhabi, Turkish Journal of Marketing. We have counted 433,295 file downloads and 1,598,914 abstract views last month. And we have reached the following milestones:
100,000,000 cumulative downloads
3,000 indexed journals
1,000 graduate programs in RePEc Genealogy (and thus ranked)
