FundRef Registry of names continues to grow
The FundRef Registry is currently undergoing rapid growth. New funding organizations are continually being evaluated for inclusion in the Registry which at the moment is being updated almost every month. Once added a name is given a DOI making it an official Registry entry.
Updating deposited data to reflect Registry changes
Members have been including FundRef information in their article deposits for over a year now and many have been able to make use of the names Registry to include funding organization identifiers. In some cases an appropriate Registry identifier did not exist or a match could not be made at the time of deposit so the metadata deposited with CrossRef contained just a funding organization name.
As the Registry grows these past deposits should be updated to reflect new identifiers and better Registry metadata.
To help members identify Registry changes that effect their prior deposits CrossRef now offers a simple getFunders service which displays the Funder information for a DOI taking into account Registry changes.
DOI 10.1037/0735-7036.121.3.306 was deposited on July 23, 2013 with the following FundRef data. This deposit identifies 5 sources of funding for the article only one of which was identified with a Registry DOI.
The API call doi.crossref.org/getFunders?q=10.1037/0735-7036.121.3.306 shows these same 5 funders with additional Registry information (in a JSON format)

Some changes were made to standards deposits beginning with schema version 4.3.2. We are also making changes to our query logic to accommodate these changes, specifically the new <standard_designator> element. This element has been added to the query input schema as well. When the new query logic is released, the standard designator may be included in queries for standards.
The addition of the standard_designator element is significant enough that we will require all standards deposits to use the crossref4.3.3.xsd deposit schema. The date of this change is TBD, we'll contact all members currently depositing standards before we make this change. Please send any comments to email@example.com

We are deploying a change today that will affect our CMS subscribers: the initial request for OAI-PMH data will have a longer response time, but subsequent requests using resumption tokes will be much quicker.
