As a new year has started, it is time to recapitulate what was achieved 
over the last year. But let us first mention December 2010. We welcomed 14 
new archives to RePEc: Prague Development Center, Asociación de Economía 
Ecológica en España, Technische Universität Berlin (II), International 
Black Sea University, Instytut Rozwoju, Haute Ecole de Gestion Arc, 
Université de Neuchâtel (II), Universidade de Brasília, Stanford 
University (II), Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, Université des 
Antilles et de la Guyane, Czestochowa Technical University, Research on 
Money and Finance, Stanford University. We counted 681,877 file downloads 
and 2,328,640 abstract views and reached the following thresholds:

6000000 references extracted
2500000 citations linked within RePEc
400000 downloads through NEP in a single year
200000 items with JEL codes
175000 articles with citations

Now to 2010: Over the year, RePEc welcomed 146 new participating archives, 
bringing the total to 1266. They all added 64973 working papers in 245 new 
series and 97720 articles in 177 new journals. This added 161885 works 
that are available online and increased by 20% the listings in RePEc. 3988 
authors joined the RePEc Author Service, and their profiles now list 
111877 more works than a year earlier. NEP sent 4448 weekly reports about 
new research, and the RePEc services that share statistics recorded 
8,989,727 downloads and 30,777,612 abstract views. These last numbers are 
lower than the previous year because of a further tightening of criteria.

In terms of new features and services, the following were added during the 
year, among others: EconomistsOnline is a new RePEc service that allows to 
search the database in a different way than existing services We also 
introduced RSS feeds for articles, papers, series and journals, and a few 
new rankings.
