• McMaster
University has a specific set of
guidelines for CVs. These guidelines, found in
SPS B-11, are outlined below.
• Faculty members must submit their CV in
McMaster format for all academic reviews and
for any administrative appointments.
• Preparation of the CV in McMaster format can
be simplified using the MacFACTs system
(formerly STAR-CV)
Guidelines state: The name that you commonly
use should be underlined. However, FHS does
not enforce this requirement. MacFACTS will
pick up your name from the database
** Changes coming to allow for prior name,
common name, etc to appear.**
• This
is usually your university office address
and should include your phone, fax and email
• This is a manual entry into MacFACTS, you can
choose which address you would like to appear,
although this is normally your business/mailing
• Do not use your home address!

status, home address, etc. It is not considered

output into the CV.

•Lifetime Research Funding
Recent change from “Last 5 years” to “Lifetime”
Note – long term faculty members are not required to add
back all funding for their entire career. Newer faculty will
be expected to keep a “lifetime” record in the CV.
Although this section is entitled “Lifetime Research
Funding”, often in FHS our faculty members are involved
in research projects with no funding attached. To
recognize this, we ask that faculty members enter these
in MacFacts as funded with a value of $0.
• Those marked as “Unfunded” do not appear on the CV
as these are projects which have been denied funding!!!
•Lifetime Research Funding
Anything that was applied for through a formal
peer review process, has a defined purpose, and
has a funding amount attached is listed in this
• Other items that would be listed include: “nonpeer reviewed grants” and “local investigator of a
clinical trial” These projects may not have
funding - but they have defined research
objectives and so belong in this section.
•Lifetime Research Funding
Each entry must include the following information:
Type (i.e. Peer reviewed)
• Title

not noted above, it is helpful to include your role on the
