Hello RePEc friends:

many developments at RePEc in the past month: first we are very close to 
release a new author service that will make it significantly easier to 
register and to update author profiles. While the new release will be 
replicating the current functionalities with only few new bells and 
whistles, the flexibility of the new scripts will allow for many 
interesting developments. Registered authors will be notified once the new 
system will be in place.

In terms of trafic, no records in this short month, but as every time, 
significant increases compared to the same month in the previous year: 
315,326 file downloads and 1,566,500 abstract views. All details are at 

In terms of benchmarks passed over the past month, a few new archives and 
increased listings from Blackwell and Kluwer brought us the following:

220000 items
125000 online items
125000 working papers
30000 items with extracted references
25000 items with citations
4000 registered authors
1200 working paper series
250 journals

Quite an impressive list for such a short month!
