Funder advisory group

This group of research funders has committed to helping Crossref reimagine our infrastructure and services, with them in mind.

As a group that is growing in its influence in the publishing world - nd following the development of our funding data and Funder Registry capabilities - the group is now looking at next steps. We’re looking at models by which funders could engage more officially with Crossref, and the development of a registry of grant identifiers.

How the group works (and the guidelines)

The group is by invitation only although we are always happy to review requests from additional funding organizations. Participants commit to attend all meetings by conference call, and may choose to send a named proxy if they are not available. Meeting notes will be circulated to all by the facilitator. The schedule of meetings is at the discretion of the chair and facilitator and may vary depending on whether there are relevant topics for discussion, but will not be more than one per quarter.

With the exception of Crossref staff, the group will be limited to one representative from each participating organization, unless particular agenda items or topics call for domain expertise from specific colleagues or departments. Advisory group members are, however, free to discuss the information shared during meetings with colleagues or any external party.
