Hello all,

here is the latest about RePEc. First, we have a leadership change for 
NEP, our email awareness program. Bernardo Batiz-Lazo, now at Leicester 
University, has lead this project since October 2000 and is now relayed by 
Marco Novarese, from the University of the Oriental Piedmont. See 
http://nep.repec.org/ for details.

Also, RePEc has now over 750 participating archives, offering over 2500 
series. We are just two short of 600 journals. In terms of traffic, we 
recorded last month 615,138 file downloads and 2,174,123 abstract views.

This brings us to the thresholds passed in April:

75000000 abstract views on IDEAS
15000000 paper downloads
475000 items
240000 abstracts
150000 online papers
150000 paper abstracts
90000 article abstracts
75000 articles with citations
20000 articles with references
2500 series
1000 books
750 archives 
80 fields covered in NEP
50% of items claimed by registered authors*

* Technically, this is not true, as a paper can be claimed by several 
authors. What is true is that the number of claims as reached 50% of the 
number of items.
