August news from RePEc

Christian Zimmermann, RePEc in August 2008, The RePEc blog, September 4, 2008.

... We have introduced RSS feeds for our NEP mailing lists, now giving an alternative to the emails for the dissemination of new working papers. Econlit has opened a RePEc archive collecting bibliographic information about some of the top US working papers series that were not yet listed on RePEc. While traffic was low, as usual for Summer, with 575,686 file downloads and 2,316,727 abstract views, we got a steady stream of authors registering, about 10 a day.

The new archives who joined RePEc were: Institute of Agricultural Economics (Romania), University of Waterloo, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Society for Judgment and Decision Making, Economic Statistics e-Center, Universidade Federal do Paraná, Economic and Social Review, University College Dublin, Suffolk University, Centro de Estudios de las Finanzas Públicas, Econlit.

Finally, RePEc passed the following thresholds:
500,000 cumulative book abstract views
400,000 cumulative abstract views at Socionet
190,000 online working papers
90,000 cited working papers
40,000 articles with references
1,500 books listed
