    Hi folks,

    I just found out that one of the journal papers I co-authored has been published in an IEEE research journal. How do I mention this on my resume?

    It's my first time so pardon my ignorance :(

    Hi dis -
    Congratulations on your publication! When I've looked at others resumes (CVs) they seem to create a separate category for "Publications" and list them according to some popular citation method (APA, for example). I hope you can continue to add to your list

    Congrats, Null. More grease to your elbow!

    Several suggested formats exist. Here is one example, from Harvard U, Department of Academic Affairs

    See item #1 in the "sample citations" section in the excerpt below, for use in CVs (mostly) and resumes.


    (Credit: Harvard Univ., see link above).

    "A sample of the citation format to be followed is attached.



    "1. Do not include papers submitted or in preparation unless
    they have been accepted for publication, in which case list
    the journal in which they will appear and indicate "in

    "2. Number references consecutively in the order in which they
    were published.

    "3. Separate publications by category, in the order shown below.

    "4. For each reference, provide all authors (in order listed in
    the reference itself), title, journal, inclusive pages, and
    year of publication.


    "1. Peer-reviewed publications (reports of original
    investigations; clinical reports; letters to the editor,
    clearly indicated as such)

    "2. Books and monographs (distinguish between authoring and
    editing books)

    "3. Evidence of works in progress (e.g. complete articles
    published in conference proceedings, chapters in books;
    review articles; editorials, clearly indicated as such)

    "4. Development and/or publication of educational materials
    (e.g. teaching cases)

    "5. Development of major curricular offerings or innovative
    educational programs at HSPH

    "6. Non-print materials (film strips, films, videotapes and
    computer software relevant to appointee's academic field)

    "7. Published abstracts within the last two years (optional)


    "Examples of correct forms of reference are given below.

    In a resume, people typically list something like:
    • 65 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 2 book chapters. Available on request.
    In a CV, we list 'em all. My CV is 16 pages long (mostly due to publication list), and it's short compared to many of my colleagues.
