Does ZORA accept a newspaper article whose author is a journalist (e.g. from the NZZ) and which merely mentions names of UZH scientists without these scientists being authors of the article?

No, the researchers of the University of Zurich should be authors of newspaper articles themselves, since ZORA documents the research output of the UZH. Researchers cannot only be mentioned in the text, they must be authors themselves or at least interview partners of the article. Interviews in which UZH researchers speak directly and elaborate on their text are fine for ZORA. The interviewer (editor of the newspaper) and the interviewed researcher are then considered to be authors.
