Arctos now provides a “funded_USD” field in Projects. (We leave it up to individuals to define what constitutes project funding.) These data may be used to illustrate the broader impacts of a project which contributes specimen that are subsequently used in other research projects. An example follows.

Under Edit Project, enter a numeric value for the funding of a project.

Note that in this case the originating project is linked to accessions (contributions) and loans (usage), and so is included in the “broader impacts” funding calculations.
