How to show my research in application?

isaaccc123isaaccc123 2 replies6 threads New Member
So I'll be applying to T20s this year, and I'm wondering how exactly to show all the research I've done. I've published 3 research papers (on one of the shorter ones, I'm first author), and I know it won't be possible to show AOs the full papers or abstracts. However, should I include a link to the papers in my additional information section? Or, is it okay if I link my ResearchGate profile? Also, if I have a paper in review, should I disclaim this in my additional information section,?

    I have seen people attach the link to research in the additional information section ao's aren't required to read it but it's nice for them to know it's there you can also link your research profile but I would link either the papers or the profile to avoid seeming over the top. Personally I don't think it is necessary to mention a paper is under review.

    If you have an "Accomplishments" section, make a subsection for "Publications" and add them there. Use the same format that you use for citations. That is enough (that is how I put my publications of my resume as a researcher)

    In addition, add the basic details of your research projects in your "Experience" section (you can also add "see publication details below"). No more than a sentence or two. You do not need the abstract - if they want to read it, they'll look it up. A citation is enough to demonstrate that you actually got the research published.

    Are these publications in peer-reviewed journals?
