A major threshold was reached a few days ago with 40,000 authors 
registered on the RePEc Author Service (not counting over 10,000 
non-authors). For comparison, the membership of the American Economic 
Association, the largest society of economists, is about 13,000.

We have welcomed the following new particpating archives in RePEc: Council 
for Budget Responsibility, Università di Roma Sapienza (II), WISE, Indiana 
State University, Canon Institute for Global Studies, Pepperdine 
University, Macrothink Institute, Credit and Capital Markets, Asian 
Development Bank, German Institute for Japanese Studies, Universitat de 
Barcelona (II), Analítika. We also counted 593,545 file downloads and 
2,794,821 abstract views, only for the RePEc services that deliver such 

This brings us to the various thresholds we reached over the last month:

60000000 cumulative abstract views on EconPapers
1400000 listed documents available online
40000 registered authors
1000 economists put on auction in the RePEc fantasy league.
