Accessing the Funder Registry

The list is available to download as an RDF file from the Open Funder Registry GitHub repository, and is freely available under a CC0 license. The RDF file provides the funder name, country, type (such as federal, private) and any relationship to another entity. You can therefore easily build funding metadata into your own tools such as manuscript tracking systems, or analytics services.

You may also download a .csv file of the funder names and identifiers in the Open Funder Registry, and download a list of funders in JSON format.

Funder Registry updates

The current and previous versions of the Registry are available from the Open Funder Registry GitHub repository. The registry is usually updated monthly.
