  One answer that I have is that the benefits of doing
  self archiving have to be demostrated to the invidual
  level of each researcher. Making general arguments
  about it is not enough.

  One thing that we do in RePEc (sorry), is that we aggregate
  all papers for a certain author, through a registration project
  called HoPEc. We also aggregate access logs across most of our
  user services in the LogEc project. Thus we can furnish researches
  with precise data to see how much the papers that they have been
  making available are accessed.
