    • 1. Progress Report on theFundRef Initiative H. Frederick Dylla Executive Director and CEO American Institute of Physics CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 2012
    • 2. FundRef A collaborative pilot project of scholarly publishers and funding agencies, facilitated by CrossRef, to provide a standard way of reportingfunding sources for published scholarly research. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 2012
    • 3. The ChallengeCurrently there is no standard practice forattributing published works to their fundingsources, making it difficult for all stakeholders(funders, researchers, publishers, and thepublic) to track or analyze published results.A common solution, developed through a unique collaboration, is emerging. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 20123
    • 4. Stakeholder Benefits Funding agencies ◦ To easily identify and track published results of funded research, i.e., improve accountability. Publishers ◦ To analyze funding sources of published content through industry-wide practice(s) Researchers ◦ To simplify submission process across systems CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 20124

Participants in Pilot Project Publishers FundersAmerican Institute of Physics US Department of Energy (DOE) (AIP) American Psychological Association (APA) US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Elsevier Science IEEE US National Science Foundation Nature Publishing Group (NSF) Oxford University Press Wellcome Trust Wiley CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 20125
    • 6. Timetable for PilotMarch 2012 Project officially launched after CrossRef Board approvalApril - Dec Working Group and subgroups define, develop, and assess pilot service and workflowEarly 2013 To issue recommendations for path forward CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 20126
    • 7. Goals of the FundRef Pilot To explore feasibility of publishers adding funder metadata (standard funder name and grant number) and depositing a set of test records to CrossRef and CrossMark for access. To define requirements for a standard nomenclature, i.e., a Funder Registry, for the capture and display of funding sources. To demonstrate an industry-wide methodology for connecting scholarly publications to research funders. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 20127
    • 8. Pilot Progress to Date Elsevier’s SciVal funding body vocabulary of ~4,000 funder names made available for pilot project. Publishers added metadata (funder name and grant number) to sets of test records for deposit to CrossRef. Publishers have begun working with manuscript tracking system vendors to add funder data at submission. CrossRef Annual General Meeting November 14, 20128
    • 9. Pilot Progress to Date (Continued) CrossRef added funder name and grant number as part of regular CrossRef deposit with the option of including data in CrossMark. CrossRef developed query API and will make metadata available through normal channels. Soon, funders and other stakeholders will begin to test use of the pilot data using the query API, e.g., to find published results of research awards.
