English abstract

This paper presents and analyses “NEP: New Economics Papers”, the current awareness service of the RePEc digital library. NEP is a human-mediated service. New items arriving in RePEc are examined by editors of subject-specific reports. This paper introduces NEP from a conceptual point of view and communicates how NEP fits into the evolving world of digital libraries. We then present summary statistics for the performance of NEP. We pay particular attention to the coverage ratio, and the redundancy of reports. Suggestions for improving the performance of NEP are discussed.
