I still find this the most amazing this: "In the absence of mandates, every encouragement policy known to Man fails to convince more than 15% to 20% of researchers to invest the 5 minutes of time needed to deposit their publications." Hence the author's recommendation that, in the absence of an institutional mandate, advocates should seek departmental mandates - the 'patchwork' mandate. Reasonable enough. But still, I do confess, I don't understand the professorial reluctance to post publications online, not because they are opposed (they are not, in the main), but simply because they cannot be bothered.
