Free Advice on CV Format From the Jewish Mother

The Jewish Mother of the Austro-libertarian movement is outraged at the horrid behavior of some of you rotten kids. As Jewish Mother to the movement, I have weapons of mass annoyance to launch against you if you fail to obey my ORDERS on this matter: whining, nagging, pouring chicken soup on your head, borscht too, pinching your cheeks (upper ones, not lower ones), throwing gefilte fish at you, breaking matzoh over your head and getting the crumbs on you, imposing guilt (How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb? None. They just sit in the dark), etc. So, BEWARE of my powers. I don’t like to brag, but, when it comes to being a nudge, I am truly world class. If you don’t obey me on this matter, you will greatly regret it.

What’s my whining complaint of the day? Many of you have rotten cv’s. You must list the publications on your cv’s in a way that makes it easier, not more difficult, for other people to cite them. This will entice them to read your material, comment on it, cite it. Demand curves slope in a downward direction. The lower the price in terms of time people must pay to cite your publications, the more of this they will do. This is important, one, so as to better enable scholars on this list to be aware of what others are saying, The way to improve your cv without extra publishing is to 1. include urls for extant publications and 2. list them in exactly in the manner someone else would cite them. Put your name in front of them. Include a url. In cases of co authorship, don’t make the person perusing your cv work hard to figure out which author comes first. {My comments are in these brackets}. For example, look at the original, the edited version and the after format for Ivan Jankovic:
