What is it?
USAID now requires that those receiving research grant funding from the USAID take steps to make publiccations and research data publicly accessible. This policy on Development Data is known as Automated Directives System 579 (ADS 579). Here's link to the policy: http://www.usaid.gov/sites/default/files/documents/1868/303maa.pdf

This plan was developed in response to the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP) February 22, 2013 memorandum, “Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research."
