Funding Information

Find out what organizations are funding research in your field.  Search using 'Funding Agency' name or 'Grant Number' in Web of Science.  This information can be found in a full record's view under the Funding table, where all items are indexed directly from the 'Acknowledgment' section of the primary source. Funding information has been made available since 2008 in the Science Citation Index and since 2015 in the Social Science Citation Index and the Emerging Sources Citation Index. 

Funding agency names from the source publication are mapped to a preferred list of more than 1,200 unified funders.  These names are displayed in the Funding Agency table in the Web of Science record.  A complete list of unified funders is available in the Web of Science Core Collection Help file.
