        Following this discussion about metrics I would like to bring to 
your attention a new service we have started in RePEc to rank working 
papers series and journals in Economics:


        references are automatically extracted from open access documents, 
mainly series of working papers. They should be completed with data from 
journals but editors are reluctan to collaborate with us. Only Taylor & 
Francis has accepted to give us metadata about citations in their 
articles. At the moment we provide citation data for almost 100k 

        RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) is a collaborative effort of 
hundreds of volunteers in 57 countries and 34 US states to enhance the 
dissemination of research in economics. The heart of the project is a 
decentralized database of working papers, journal articles and software 

        Comments are welcome. Regards,

  José Manuel Barrueco                                http://www.uv.es/=barrueco
