While most of RePEc is automated, and thus functions the same way whether
we are in a pandemic or not, the content and the usage of the services
have made noticeable shifts in the past month or two. First in terms of
new content, it has slowed down, but with an exponential increase in
material relating to Covid-19. As of this writing, there are 779 items
relating to Covid-19 in RePEc. Also in terms of usage, it is slightly up
compared to March, with an definite focus on Covid-19 related material.
See for example, the 25 most downloaded working papers. All in all, we
counted 617,754 file downloads and 2,914,152 abstract views.
Related to this, we inaugurated an Economics Virtual Seminar Calendar that
is already getting very good usage. We have only two new RePEc archives to
announce, though: IJSAB-International and the London Academy of Science
and Business. Finally, we still reached a milestone:
800,000 articles with citations
