Over the past month, we welcomed new archives from the following 
institutions: Université Nice-Sophia Antipolis, Europa-Universität 
Viadrina, Associazione Studi e Ricerche Interdisciplinari sul Lavoro, Feng 
Chia University, Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez. RePEc services 
served 2,235,346 abstract views and 554,912 full-text downloads over the 
course of the month. And we managed to pass the following thresholds:

800000 research items listed in registered author profiles
250000 working papers with extracted references
150000 articles with extracted references
1500 participating archives

A few additional words about 2013. Over the past year, we counted 
26,409,738 abstract views and 7,004,655 full-text downloads through RePEc 
services participating in the bean counting, IDEAS served 11,473,203 
unique visitors from 226 countries and territories (including 3 visits 
from Nauru, 7 from Saint Pierre and Miquelon, but none this year from 
North Korea, contrarily to previous years). RePEc added 112 new 
participating archives, 297 working paper series, 180 journals, 53,731 
working papers, 113,336 articles, and a total of 163,479 new items 
available online. 3,769 authors registered, 4,141 NEP reports were issued, 
references were extracted and matched from 112,389 works. Beyond this, 
IDEAS and EDIRC went through a redesign, EconoAcademics.org was relaunched 
as a blog aggregator for economics research, the CollEc co-authorship 
analysis site was opened to the public, new features were added to the 
RePEc Author Service and CitEc, our citation analysis site, and the RePEc 
Genealogy was introduced. And there are plenty of plans for 2013!
