Canadian Common CV (CCV)

We are currently experiencing a technical issue with the Canadian Common CV affecting the functionality to import PubMed publications. However, users can continue to add their publications within the system and save their information using alternative methods. The following options are recommended to address this issue:

  1. Add individual publications to the appropriate Publications subsection of the CCV; and/or
  2. Import publications into the CCV by using a BibTeX file from other bibliographic databases, such as Scopus, Google Scholar and Web of Science.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Canadian Common CV (CCV) is a web-based application that provides researchers with a single, common approach to gathering CV information required by a network of federal, provincial and not-for-profit research funding organizations. The CCV’s processes, procedures and capabilities allow the input of CV information by researchers and the extraction of the CV data (with consent from the researcher) by member agencies to support their funding application process.
