Accessing the Open Funder Registry

The list is available to download as an RDF file from the Open Funder Registry GitLab repository, and is freely available under a CC0 license. The RDF file provides the funder preferred name, alternate name(s), country, type (government, private), subtype, and any relationship to another entity. Private funding subtypes include: academic, corporate, foundation, international, other non-profit (private), professional associations and societies. Government funding subtypes include: federal (national government), government non-federal (state/provincial government). 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.

Open Funder Registry updates

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