These scripts scrape data (on countries' performance in economic research) from some 300 different pages of the IDEAS/RePEc site, reorganize the data, and store the data in a structured way in an Excel spreadsheet.

The application is not particularly exciting, but it illustrates the power of Matlab for the purpose of scraping the web.
