Narrative CVs

In 2021, we undertook a three-month project to review the effectiveness of the current narrative CV format (also known as résumé for researchers) from the point of view of the CV writer and the review panel.

This report shares our findings, including feedback from the writers and the reviewers, and recommendations or considerations for funders, societies or institutions thinking of adopting narrative CV formats in researcher assessment. We also produced a set of resources for any researchers who are writing a narrative CV, and shared our findings at an online workshop in August 2021. 

This project was developed in collaboration with the UK Reproducibility Network (UKRN).
