I see that USAID provides public access to research data via DDL.

I don't see how it provides public access to USAID-funded journal articles, as required by Feb 2013 OSTP public access memo.

Does USAID plan to collect articles/manuscripts from authors and establish a repository giving full-text access to articles? (for example: after a 12-month embargo period)

Current USAID regulations and policies require that all USAID funded reports be submitted to the Development Experience Clearinghouse at the end of the project. USAID is currently finalizing a Public Access Plan for federally funded research that will outline guidance for ensuring public access of articles resulting from USAID-funding. Page 10 of USAID's existing Scientific Research Policy also references the pending formulation of this plan.
