RePEc Author Service

We launch RePEc Author Service on new software

March 21, 2004

The name and the service

RePEc Author Service (RAS) replaces HoPEc, both as a project name and as a web service.  Old HoPEc software was rewritten from scratch to make it more flexible, more general, easier to use.

What’s new?

Quite a lot, if we compare with HoPEc.  Important differences:

Every personal profile registered in HoPEc will be imported into new service.  Users will receive an email message from the system with login details and a password.  We expect this process to take about a week.


We greatly appreciate critical and constructive feedback from our users.  Let us know if you have any difficulties while using the service.


The work on rewriting HoPEc software was funded by an Open Society Institute grant as ACIS project.
