Congratulations to Dr Wouter Gerritsma. The Netherlands is among the leaders in open access. Obviously scientists and scholars there are enlightened. It is also the home of most of the commercial journal publishers who impose certain conditions on authors and institutional repository managers before they can place their own papers in their own repositories. In fact some of these publishers are known to have worked to stall the adoption of open access in the US and elsewhere.

Dear Arunchalam Subbiah, there is quite a large difference in the interests of the universities involved in this study and the Commercial publishers. Perhaps of interest to you is the most recent report by Dr. Alma Swan on behalf of Unesco Swan, A. (2012). Policy guidelines for the development and promotion of open access. Paris, UNESCO. 76p.
which also points out that the Netherlands is doing more than average to increase the availability of OA.
Fruthermore two large, by some account -Dutch- publishing houses, Elsevier and Springer, allow green road archiving of published articles.
