Funding Agencies

The Funding Agencies Explorer in InCites allows Funders, Analysts, Researchers and Publishers to analyze the impact of research that has been funded, published or both funded and published by agencies by leveraging unified funding acknowledgment data from the Web of Science.

Funding agencies, like research producing organizations such as universities, must demonstrate quality decisions in their domain. 

  • Are they funding the right people? 
  • Are they making a difference? 

The Funding Agencies Explorer in InCites can help justify these decisions by measuring citation impact of funded works, so that funding agencies can benchmark themselves to peers and quantify their impact within the scientific community and beyond. InCites leverages unified funding acknowledgment data from the Web of Science, and provide a tool to explore the data with an eye to benchmarking and citation impact analysis; an InCites Explorer for Funders will be constructed.

The funding agency explorer includes nearly 500 unified funding organizations found in and curated from Web of Science funding acknowledgements.  A complete list of unified funding agencies can be downloaded here (application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet, 32.4 kB, info).
