The statistic of the month is that over half a million items in RePEc are 
cited at least once, according to the CitEc citation analysis project. 
Speaking of citations, some changes to the way RePEc rankings are 
performed are currently up for vote, and a new ranking of economists by 
cohorts has been released. The latter exploits graduation data collected 
in the RePEc Genealogy. As for traffic, it was good, with 657,370 file 
downloads and 3,138,554 abstract views during last month.

An unusually large cohort of new archives joined us last month: World 
Intellectual Property Organization, IPEA (II), University of Windsor, 
Hyperion University, Warsaw School of Economics (II), INRA (VIII), Kharkiv 
National University of Economics, University of Sakarya, Institute for 
Social and Economic Change, University of Barcelona (III), ESADE Business 
School, KASBIT, Institut Ekonomskih Nauka, Centre of Excellence for 
Scientific and Research Journalism, Université d’Evry Val d’Essonne.

And the thresholds we passed were:

12000000 references extracted
3000000 downloads through NEP
500000 cited documents
40000 issued NEP reports
1000 books with extracted references
250 book series
