Configuration: Vitas

The content in this knowledge base is based upon the standard FACULTY180 environment. Your institution may have made changes to customize the FACULTY180 environment to meet your institution's needs; therefore, the screens in your FACULTY180 environment may differ slightly from the knowledge base. For more information, please contact your FACULTY180 administrator.

Within FACULTY180, the Standard CV is the default vita template. By default, a CV displays all sections that have been created by your institution, and the activities within each section. Additional vitae templates can be configured for multiple unit levels and can be built hierarchically, beginning with the highest institutional level and then for subunits (colleges, departments, etc.).

Scholarly Contributions and Presentations citations in vitas can be configured to display Web of Science metrics, such as Times Cited. Web of Science metrics only display for scholarly works that are directly imported into FACULTY180 from Web of Science. If your institution has a campus license for Thomson Reuters products and would like to set up an integration with FACULTY180, please contact your Interfolio support representative. Once this functionality has been activated for your institution, the vita settings must be configured to display the Web of Science metrics. To do this, select the Show Web of Science Times Cited checkbox in the Section Settings section.
