Funder Registry

Acknowledging funders

In the metadata relating to their books or journals published on the platforms, OpenEdition publishers are now able to mention the names of the institutions or funding agencies that have supported a research project that has led to a publication or enabled the publication of a book or journal. Entries must be based on the list of funders who have registered with Crossref’s Funder Registry.

This information is also registered with Crossref in the book or journal’s metadata when the book or journal’s DOI is registered or updated.

The book or journal then appears in the list of resources funded by an organization when that organization is searched for using Crossref’s Funder Registry search engine:

For example, Crossref’s search engine returns one book funded by Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior.
