The Crossref Curriculum

Funding data deposits

Funding metadata can be deposited with Crossref in two ways:

  1. In a stand-alone deposit where just the funding metadata is provided.
  2. As part of the full set of metadata for an article.

When funding data is successfully deposited, an inserted identifier will appear as a message (<msg>) within the submission log:

 <record_diagnostic status="Success">
      <doi>10.1016/j.apcatb.2018.04.081</doi>
      <msg>Inserted identifier: 501100001809 for name: "the National Natural Science Foundation of China"
</msg>
   </record_diagnostic>

Learn more about the detailed rules for depositing funding metadata.

Stand-alone deposit

Stand-alone deposits are intended as a convenience for depositing funding data to existing DOIs without having to repeat the existing metadata. The deposit XML file contains just the DOI of the article and the specific FundRef data. Please note the following:

  • If the DOI currently has any funding data it will be replaced by the stand-alone deposited data.
  • If the DOI currently has any Crossmark data, the stand-alone deposited funding data will be inserted within the existing (previously deposited) Crossmark data.
  • When uploading stand-alone XML deposits to Crossref via HTTPS POST, the operation must be doDOICitUpload.
  • When uploading using the admin tool, the file type must be DOI References/Resources.

Full metadata deposit

Funding data may be deposited as part of a normal ‘full’ metadata XML deposit for a DOI.
