How to List Publications on Your Resume

If you have published anything worthwhile related to the career you want, you can include it on your resume.

Simply add a new section at the bottom of your resume titled “Publications” and list each publication in chronological order (newest first). Use APA or MLA bibliographic style to cite the publications. This tool makes it easy (Also if you are the only author, you can leave off your name since it will be assumed that you’re the author.)

A question I had was if it’s worth it to include a publications section if you only have one publication. After some deliberation I decided that it was worth it at least in my case.

Here is my publications section for reference:
