The matching for the getFunders API has been improved. The FundRef Registry is continuously updated with new funding organizations. The getFunders API returns Funder information deposited for a DOI, as well as any additional Funder information that may not have been established at the time of deposit. 
For example, http://doi.crossref.org/getFunders?q=10.1109/JPHOT.2014.2331233 displays funder information in JSON format for DOI 10.1109/JPHOT.2014.2331233.
The funder name ‘NSF’ has been deposited for this DOI. This funder name is too ambiguous to make a match, the getFunder API displays all available funders related to ‘NSF’.

CrossRef strongly advises that all depositors move to HTTPS. Once HTTPS has been implemented by your organization, you should change passwords for any deposit accounts that have been used with the non-SSL interface.

Please contact support@crossref.org to coordinate password changes.

Note: We will continue to support a non SSL interface but we strongly encourage anyone making deposits or services requiring a deposit enabled login to switch to SSL. Query transactions can continue to use non SSL but be sure to use a separate account so that deposit capable credentials are not exposed to clear text transmissions.

If you have acquired or sold a title for 2015, please notify CrossRef Support (support@crossref.org) of the transfer in advance to ensure a smooth transition. Title transfer procedures are available in our help documentation

Note that DOIs already assigned by any previous title owner must be maintained, and new DOIs should not be created for existing content. DOIs for titles are available through the depositor reports. We are also able to provide DOIs and metadata for acquired titles upon request.

We are configuring the main CrossRef system to support SSL (https). Any requests to use the administrative interfaces (doi.crossref.org) will now be automatically redirected to a SSL.

Members who use automation to engage with the system may change their requests to use SSL (https://doi.crossref.org:443).

We will continue to support a non SSL interface but we strongly encourage anyone making deposits or services requiring a deposit enabled login to switch to SSL.

Query transactions can continue to use non SSL but be sure to use a separate account so that deposit capable credentials are not exposed to clear text transmissions.
