Deciding what to put on your CV

Jo VanEvery writes a short piece at University Affairs, offering some advice on creating & refining your CV.  Here’s a snippet:

One misrepresented item puts your whole CV in question

If the search committee notices one of these types of misrepresentation, you also throw everything else on your CV into question.

Maybe they aren’t familiar with one of the journals or presses where you have published. Now it will be assumed to be not that good. And anything that just says “forthcoming” with no date or issue number, will now be assumed to be “submitted” rather than accepted or in press.”
