Good practices  For:Funders

The Swiss National Science Foundation is testing a structured narrative CV format called ‘SciCV’ to increase consistency in decision-making for its grant applications. The switch to a more narrative format is designed to help researchers clearly communicate their most important research contributions, rather than relying on a publication list to convey the value of their work. The use of narrative also helps in recognizing and rewarding a variety of research outputs in addition to peer-reviewed articles. SciCV integrates with ORCID making it easy for researchers with an ORCID ID to populate and maintain. For more information about the pilot project, see: here
