Listing your publications on your CV is a great way of drawing attention to your expertise in specific areas of pharmacy. If your work has been published, or is due to be published, list these publications in a ‘publications’ section on your CV. These publications, which are usually peer-reviewed, may include research papers, conference papers and academic writings.
How should you format publications on your pharmacy CV?
Use the MLA style to document your publications. Using this format to reference your publications ensures you come across as a professional candidate.
But how do you format your publications using the MLA style?
Start by including the author’s name (your name). Then include the article title, the name of the publication, the volume number, the date and the page numbers of your work. Italicise the title of the publication to draw attention to it and make the section easier to read.
Here is an example:
‘Ben R. Robertson. ‘A study of pharmaceutical processes and practices’. The Big Cheese Pharmaceutical Journal, 43(2), 2019, 45-49.’
If the publication has more than one author, list them all in the order they are listed on the publication.
It’s possible that this section will take up more than an entire page of your CV. This is perfectly acceptable. Pharmacists’ CVs can be much longer in length than CVs for other professions.
