Over the past month, we have welcomed the following institutions that now index their publications in RePEc: Instituto Brasileiro de Inovação Financeira, Society for Advanced Management Studies, Università di Cassino, Eastern Mediterranean University, Central Statistical Office of Poland, Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), Università de Salento. We have also counted 389,550 file downloads and 1,541,298 abstract views during last month. This is a rather quiet month in terms of traffic, yet plenty of material was added to our online bibliographies. Yet, somehow, we hit no milestone over the last 31 days. There be more in a month.
Last month saw a surge in newly participating RePEc archives. We have welcomed: European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, International Scientific Publications, European Center for Science Education and Research, Risk Market Journals, Banco Central del Uruguay, “Dimitrie Cantemir” Christian University Bucharest, University of Tampere, University of Bath (II), St Kliment Ohridski University of Sofia, International Journal of Transport Economics, Fabrizio Serra Editore. We also counted 430,267 file downloads and 2,529,308 abstract views from the RePEc services that provide such statistics: EconPapers, IDEAS, NEP and Socionet. Keep in mind that other services use RePEc data without providing statistics.
And now to a few milestones we have reached over the last month:
4000000 cumulative book downloads
1800000 items listed
700000 articles with abstracts
500000 cumulative book downloads
2000 Twitter followers for NEP feeds
There is relatively little to report this month. For those RePEc services that report these statistics, we counted 506,746 file downloads and 1,920,829 abstract views. The new RePEc archives include one from Morocco, the 84th participating country: Korean Economic Association, US Department of the Treasury, Universidad de Costa Rica, OCP Policy Center, Université du Québec à Montréal (II), Inovatus Services, Texas A&M University. Waseda University, Sciedu Press. Finally, we reached the following milestones:
50,000 NEP reports compiled
12,500 links between blogs posts and RePEc works on EconAcademics.org
This was a big month, with almost 50,000 works added to RePEc. In part, this was due to the following new participants: Entrepreneurship Training Center Albania, Italian Development Economists Association, and University of Groningen. We have counted 535,112 file downloads and 2,031,692 abstract views. And this big push in indexed material also helped in passing several milestones:
1,750,000 indexed works
1,100,000 indexed articles
1,000,000 indexed articles with full text
700,000 items are cited
500,000 items with JEL code
