Build Your Own Vita

  1. Click the Reports tab at the top of the screen.
  2. Click Create A New Report.
  3. Choose a report style:
    • Blank Document:

      This allows you to build a report from scratch. With this option, your personal details will be added to the report for you, along with a sample section to use as a starting point to craft the rest of your report.

      This option will allow for the most creativity on your part, since you can craft the entire report from the ground up. This may also be useful for ad hoc requests for specific activity data. For instance, you could select this option to quickly generate a list of formatted citations for your recent Publication and Presentation activities.

    • Vita: 

      Make this selection to start from the sample vita. This is a general, all-purpose vita format, and it may look different from any base or custom vitae in your instrument.

      This option will prove the easiest and fastest way to customize a vita. You can use the standard structure and make minor changes (such as filtering, drag-and-drop to reorder sections, and setting date ranges) to accommodate your needs.

  4. Once you have made your selections and are content with the vita as you see it on your screen, you may either:
    • export the report as a PDF or Word document by clicking Options.
    • Save the report for future use. If you save the report, make sure and give it an appropriate title for future use.
