I have recently completed a summer research project. In this project I completed sample preparation and preliminary analysis which will be used as a basis for further analysis. I have been told by my day to day supervisor that when this further analysis is done and published, I will be mentioned in the paper.
Can I add a line to my CV (for applying to graduate programmes), under a description of my summer project along the lines of:
"I will be mentioned in the paper that utilises this work when it is written."
Is this acceptable, and of interest to application reviewers, or a waste of my CV space and their time? Note as an undergraduate about to start third year I don't yet have any publications to add to my CV.
