I'm a PhD student and recently submitted my first paper to a journal. I listed this paper as under review in my CV with its title, but not with the journal name. (My CV is available on my personal website and the lab's website)

In my field, it seems pretty common that grad students/post docs who are in the early stage of their career list their under review papers to advertise their productivity, and people don't seem to worry about its potential impact on review processes.

Is it possible that reviewers happen to learn that I'm the author of the paper either because they google the title or because they come across it on my CV?

Maybe I'm overthinking, I don't think reivewers would proactively try to find out info about authors. But I'd like to hear what other people think and whether I should be more cautious about listing my under review papers in my CV. Thanks!

  • 1. Does your field have double blind review? 2. In my field at least, people typically only list ones that are "in press" since "in preparation" or "in submission" is essentially meaningless. – Azor Ahai -him- May 4 at 2:03
  • I'm going to guess this is a computer science question about double blind review. Please edit to make this clear. – Anonymous Physicist May 4 at 3:16
  • Is it possible that reviewers happen to learn that I'm the author of the paper either because they google the title? That would be a normal thing to do when checking to see if the paper is plagiarized. – Anonymous Physicist May 4 at 3:17
  • I do not see why it would be a bad thing if reviewers find out you wrote your paper, but then I do not use double blind review. – Anonymous Physicist May 4 at 3:18
  • @AzorAhai: this may be field-dependent, but why essentially meaningless? It tells me what the student is working on, with whom and implies the student would be ready to talk about the results. For master students, it tells me that they even attempt to write a paper! For people with many papers, I am usually assuming that the level of the papers are similar. – user111388 May 4 at 9:28
