The quietest month of the year still brought some important news. RePEc 
now carries bibliographic information about 1000 journals and 300′000 
working papers. We counted 647,942 file downloads and 2,213,814 abstract 
views for the month. For working papers, this adds up to 25 million 
downloads since we started counting!

In terms of developments, the RePEc Input Service now also allows journals 
that for some reason cannot open their own RePEc archive to index their 
articles in RePEc. Also, EconPapers allows users to download bibliographic 
data in various formats for their own databases. Both developments are due 
to Sune Karlsson, who also moved EconPapers and LogEc to new hardware.

During August 2009, the following archives joined RePEc: Sam Houston State 
University, arXiv, National Insurance Institute of Israel, University of 
Rome Sapienza (II), Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia, 
EPFL (II), BBVA, Journal of Transport Economics and Policy, Queens 
University of Charlotte. A special mention regarding arXiv: it is a very 
large and popular archive in Physics, Mathematics and Computer Sciences 
that is now feeding its Quantitative Finance content to RePEc.

Finally, here is the traditional list of thresholds passed during the last 
25,000,000 cumulative working paper downloads
300,000 working papers
150,000 working papers with references
60,000 articles with references
1,000 journals
