fundref registry

fundref logoThe FundRef Registry provides a common taxonomy of over 6000 funding body names that FundRef participants should use to normalize Funder Names and IDs for deposit.

The list should be used to present authors with a pre-populated "Funder Name" option at the time of submission, and can also be used to match the funding names in backfile content if this data has been previously extracted.

The list is available to download as an RDF file, and is freely available under a CC0 license waiver.
