How to write a narrative CV

This course, from the University of Glasgow, is for anyone writing a narrative CV for a grant, Fellowship or job application. In particular, this course is directed at early-career researchers to show their qualitative assessment of their work and the impact of their work beyond citations and other quantitative measures.

This course (25 min) looks at:

  • The thinking behind a move towards narrative CV and assessment formats:  how the research landscape and research assessment practices are evolving and efforts to develop fairer assessment approaches
  • Advice and tips on what to include in a more narrative format
  • Examples from real narrative CVs, written by early-career researchers
