I have a few publications and was wondering if I should/could list them in my business school resume. Any thoughts?

I've only seen publications as part of the more academically oriented CVs. I think someone (terry12?) had an anecdotal example about how he included publications as part of his CV but not his resume.

Another thing to consider: do these publications add value to your resume? or would that space be better spent on a different item?

cheers,
ac.

I agree that publications are part of of a CV and not a resume, but at least in my opinion, stating the publications is quite relevant to my work - I am a scientist and as part of my work and other colleagues, I was able to apply a new method to an applicable area within my industry, thus enhancing productivity. It is not a pure science research. For example, researching the Green's function is pure math research, but applying to medical tomography and CAT is an application of that pure research.

And if I couldn't include these in my resume, where would I include them? In my field of work, even though job applicants submit resumes, they often include their publications.

Sarzan, I wouldn't list full citations in the resume. Full citations might make sense in a resume submitted for a job in your technical field, but a resume written for B-school applications will be read by people with relatively limited technical knowledge. You could instead try condensing the citations into something along the lines of this:

- Five first-author publications (3 in Journal X, 2 in The Y Journal) regarding Topic Z

Then you could go ahead and put in another line describing the impact of the research. The Adcom will understand. And this method will save space and make your resume look less cluttered.

When you do eventually go looking for a job (assuming your desired position is in a related technical field), you'll have two options:
- Submit the resume with the condensed citations. If the firm wants more details, they'll ask for them.
- Just submit a CV.
I had some experience with this when I applied for internships this summer. Most of the firms asked for my CV, though a couple just wanted the resume and called for clarifications.

Thanks terry12 for the feedback. This does help. But one question: when you say I could condense it to a line or so, under which heading or sub-topic in your resume would you include this line?

Also, did you discuss these publications in your essays?

Thanks again.

I included the publications under the corresponding job heading, in a manner similar to other responsibilities and accomplishments. I did write about one of my publications in my essays- the one that I thought had the broadest and most significant impact.
