JMIR Publications believes it is beneficial for authors to acknowledge the support and contributions to their research in their published articles.
The "Funder" section of the submission form is based on the Crossref Funder Registry This is an open registry of granting organization names and identifiers. By choosing the appropriate funding information from the dropdown menu, this detail will be included in the metadata associated with your paper. This information makes funding data more openly available, providing transparency into scholarly funding and its results for researchers, funders and other readers.
If the funding agency related to your research is not included in the Crossref registry, you are also able to enter that information by typing into the textbox.
