Template for researcher's curriculum vitae
The Finnish Advisory Board on Research Integrity (TENK), Universities Finland UNIFI and the Rectors' Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences Arene ry and the Academy of Finland have together drafted a model curriculum vitae that complies with good scientific practice. This model CV for researchers aims to provide guidelines for drafting an appropriate CV from the perspective of research ethics in a way that presents an individual's merits as comprehensively, truthfully and as comparably as possible.

A citation database usually includes the information on the researcher's:
What is a h-index?
The h-index is an indicator used in academic publishing to measure the publishing activity of researchers and their scientific influence. It is determined by both the number of the researcher's publications and the number of the citations received by the publications.
H-index = number of publications (h) referenced to ≥ h.
How can I find out my h-index?
The researcher's h-index can be searched from the Scopus and Web of Science databases and from Google Scholar. Citations from Google Scholar can be analyzed with the free Publish and Perish program.
The h-index differs in different databases because of the content of the databases differs. Every database counts the h-index based on its publication coverage and therefore you must choose the database that is suitable for the discipline in question.
For analyzing h-index all the researcher’s publications found in the database are needed. Therefore, an up-to-date list of publications by a researcher is always required for a reliable determination of the h-index.
Researcher profile of the Google Scholar counts also non-scientific publications e.g. thesis. There might also be duplicates because of the self-archiving. Therefore h-index from the Google Scholar differs significantly from the values which are obtained from Scopus or Web of Science.
