Hi everybody. Question about the research section of the sf match CAS which I hope doesn't sound too obnoxious (though I'm afraid it will). Presently, entering my publications alone into the text box makes me hit the text limit such that I cannot enter in poster/lecture presentations, ongoing research projects, and unpublished projects. Has anyone else run into this issue in the past and how did you handle it? Did you find a way to condense publication information, or write something like "XX poster publications, XX unpublished, and XX ongoing projects available upon request" or other? Tried looking at prior threads on this subject, but couldn't find much.

Thanks!

It's obnoxious but only because I'm jealous... ;)

Only list your published stuff. If you're hitting the limit then clearly you don't need to worry about some unpublished work here or there. If that still doesn't help then only list papers as compared to posters - they count for more in the grand scheme of things.

Alternatively , if you rather show you've done it all, take select publications and posters that you're most proud of and list those. Just put the tittle "SELECT PEER REVIEWED ARTICLES". Or notate that these were chosen from a selection. Submit your full pub list outside the match to programs individually or bring it with you on interview day.

But seriously, if you're filling the whole box don't worry. Plenty of people can't fill the whole thing. For example I am applying to fellowship and I filled the box with a combo of posters, papers and 1-2 lines on a few different research projects. lol, clearly I'm way behind you on the pubs :)

Oh and don't forget, don't skip lines if you don't have room. Instead, use formatting - bold/italics/underline - to divide that space.

Agree with above. Just put stuff where you are 1st author that has already been published, followed by in press/accepted for publication if there is room.

Have seen people put a web address link to their full CV, or you can just bring a paper copy to interviews to have placed in your file.

This is a good problem to have :)

You can write "Selected publications out of XX total."
For work in progress that you want noticed, you can add (Manuscript in preparation) at the end of the citation
