Updating funding deposits with new registry info

The Funder Registry is growing rapidly. New funders are continually being evaluated for inclusion, and the Registry is updated almost every month. Once added, a funder name is given a DOI, making it an official Registry entry. It’s important to check regularly and add funder IDs to existing records where no funder ID was available at the time of first deposit.

Updating deposited data to reflect registry changes

If an appropriate identifier did not exist in the registry (or a match could not be made) at the time of deposit, metadata will need to be updated to include new identifiers and better registry metadata.

getFunders API

We have a simple getFunders service to help you identify Funder Registry changes that affect your existing deposits. The getFunders service displays the funder information for a DOI (including Registry changes).

For example, DOI https://0-doi-org.brum.beds.ac.uk/10.1037/0735-7036.121.3.306 was registered on 18 May 2017 with the following funding data. This deposit identifies five sources of funding for the article, only one of which was identified with a registry DOI.

The API call https://0-doi-crossref-org.brum.beds.ac.uk/getFunders?q=10.1037/0735-7036.121.3.306 shows these same five funders with additional Registry information (in JSON format)

This tells you that:

  • SEASPACE was deposited without an identifier, and nothing in the registry has changed
  • Walt Disney Company was deposited without an identifier, but there is a registry entry for The Walt Disney Company which has a registry DOI
  • Soroptimist International was deposited without an identifier, and nothing in the registry has changed
  • American Psychological Association was deposited without an identifier, but it does have a registry DOI
  • American Association of University Women was deposited with a registry DOI.
