Slow progress under U of Zurich's OA mandate

Klaus Graf has done a new review of the OA mandate at the University of Zurich.  When he first reviewed its progress last year (March 2007), he found that the compliance rate was very low.  In his new review, he finds that only 252 documents were deposited in ZORA, the UZ repository, during 2007, and only 25 so far in 2008.   By contrast, the U of Freiburg repository added about 1,100 documents without a mandate.  Read his new review in the original German or Google's English.
