What is new at RePEc? 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 
Catolica de Chile, Society for Judgment and Decision Making, Economic 
Statistics e-Center, Universidade Federal do Parana, conomic and Social 
Review, University College Dublin, Suffolk University, Centro de Estudios 
de las Finanzas Publicas, Econlit.

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