Report: Using narrative CVs: process optimization and bias mitigation, DORA/FORGEN CoP workshop 

The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) funder’s group and Funding Organisations for Gender Equality Community of Practice (FORGEN CoP) partnered to organise a workshop focused on optimising the use of narrative CVs, which is an emerging method used by research funders to widen the research outputs that can be recognised in research assessment. The workshop, Using Narrative CVs: process optimization and bias mitigation, facilitated by Dr Claartje Vinkenburg, was convened as two events to enable global attendance. More than 120 participants from over 40 funding organisations and 22 countries joined us to explore strategies to mitigate potential biases of narrative CVs and monitor their effectiveness in the grant funding process. The published report from this workshop can be found here.
