Quick Summary

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

When?

Publications: October 2014.

Data:  October 2014.

How?

Publication manuscripts will be submitted to the USAID Development Experience Clearinghouse. Datasets must be submitted to the Data Development Library (DDL).

Why?

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."

So what do I really have to do?

DATA

- USAID datasets must be submitted to the Data Development Library (DDL)

PUBLICATIONS (Journal articles, conference proceedings articles)

- Submit all intellectual works which result from USAID funding to the Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC). Intellectual works include articles and papers, whether published or not.
