First about last month. CitEc has a new sponsor. We counted 512,345 file 
downloads and 2,274,496 abstract views, and we welcomed a small crop of 
newly participating archives: Redfame Publishing, Warsaw School of 
Economics, Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, Universität Trier. The 
Economists Online website has closed.

Here are the thresholds we passed last December:

500000 documents with extracted and matched references
8000 online books
3000 links from Wikipedia to documents or authors on RePEc sites

As for what we have done over the past year: We inaugurated several new 
features: the RePEc Biblio, MyIDEAS, 10-year rankings, a job market paper 
archive, and a fantasy league. We served 6,819,455 downloads and 
29,020,533 abstract views. We welcomed 124 newly participating archives 
that added along with the existing ones about 173,000 documents to RePEc. 
We also counted over 4,000 newly registered authors. This continuing 
growth is quite surprising, as we would have thought that all low-hanging 
fruits were already gathered long ago. But no, they keep coming, and we 
welcome them with open arms.
