  • Develop grant proposals through one-on-one support with researchers
  • Provide sample proposals, templates and guides to assist in proposal development
  • Offer criteria review of proposals
  • Advise how to construct the strongest proposals for submission
  • Support large network and team grants or major strategic grants
  • Develop budgets and help researchers identify funding sources
  • Liaise with funding agencies

CV Management

The Okanagan Campus provides researchers with access to UNIWeb, a tool for sharing information across institutions, associations and research centers.

UNIWeb gives researchers the ability to collaborate with colleagues in secure and private networks, streamline funding applications with Canadian Common CV (CCV) syncing capabilities, and manage and track the outputs of research groups and projects.

For more information, training, or to sign up for an account, please contact your subject librarian or:

Conflict of Interest

All faculty members, Principal Investigators and Co-Investigators are required to file a Conflict of Interest/Commitment (COI/COC) declaration within 30 days of joining UBC and at least annually thereafter, or whenever there is a significant change to your appointment or circumstances. The COI/COC declaration discloses the nature of, and time spent on, any competing activities outside UBC.

A current COI/COC declaration is required by Federal Tri-Council agencies (NSERC, CIHR and SSHRC) and is one of many ways in which UBC maintains its high ethical standards. UBC was the first university in Canada to require all faculty members and active researchers to maintain an up-to-date and approved Conflict of Interest/Commitment declaration.

To file your COI/COC declaration, login to RISe and answer the ten yes/no questions about any potentially competing activities outside UBC.

Research Data Management

UBC Library’s Research Data Management website supports researchers throughout the research data management lifecycle.

From searching for pre-existing datasets to writing a data research management plan that satisfies grant funders to securely storing and working with data on UBC’s DataVerse server, the steps are clearly laid out and highlighted resources are available to assist you.

When you need help with applying the metadata to make your research data findable in the long term, the Research Data Management website will direct you.

Finally, if you choose to share your data widely or only need to preserve it for a limited time to meet your grant requirements, UBC Library has services to help you with this.

For more information or additional questions, about managing your research data please contact your subject librarian or:

Citation Management

Managing citations is an essential part of the research process. Citation management tools can help you to:

  • organize your research all in one place;
  • avoid plagiarism by tracking your research path;
  • create in text citations with the click of a button; and
  • easily format and re-format bibliographies and in-text references, facilitating the change of formats for submission to different journals.

UBC Library maintains a site licence for RefWorks, which is available for free to UBC students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Instructions for best use of RefWorks can be found here.

For more information or additional questions about managing your citations please contact your subject librarian or:
