Some may validly argue that 2008 was not the best year, but the RePEc 
project certainly cannot complain. Whichever statistics you look at, it 
has been a stellar year: 10,000 bibliographic items were added every 
month, including from 700 new series and journals and 126 new 
participating archives, 3,500 authors joined, we recorded 31,000,000 
abstract views and 8,000,000 document downloads and 4,000 NEP reports 
announcing new working papers were sent. Such intense activity is going to 
be difficult to beat in 2009.

In terms of new features, we added RSS feeds for the NEP reports, 
introduced the RePEc Input Service to facilitate data entry in some cases, 
and IDEAS moved to a new server sponsored by the Society for Economic 

Now for the monthly report about December 2009, we surpassed 400,000 
listed journal articles, we witnessed 704,217 file downloads and 2,619,953 
abstract views, and added content from the following 12 new archives: 
Nordic Journal of Political Economy, Petru Maior University, Universidad 
de Murcia, University of Applied Sciences Berlin, Journal of Economic 
Education, Central Bank of Cyprus, University of Oradea, Savez ekonomista 
Vojvodine, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Tulane University, Romanian 
Academy of Economic Sciences, Ave Maria University.

In terms of thresholds, we passed the following over the last month:

100,000,000 cumulative abstract views of working papers
35,000,000 cumulative file downloads through RePEc services
30,000,000 cumulative abstract views on EconPapers
