What tools make it easy to maintain (or avoid!) the N versions of your CV?

When writing a CV (applying for an academic position, workshop or a scholarship), it's important to include one's list of publications, conference talks and posters, awards, etc.

Moreover, the list need to be tailored to the respective scope (and with the appropriate fine-graining).

The question is, is there a specific workflow (or software) to keep tracks of one's academic records, so that later it's easy to cherry-pick the relevant stuff?

  • Your question seems to be very close to that linked by Zenon, could you please explain how is it different? – user102 Nov 25 '12 at 11:13
  • @CharlesMorisset I somehow missed that question, and mine should be closed (you are right, it's too similar). – Piotr Migdal Nov 25 '12 at 11:21

Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Research (also DBLP for computer science) collect a decent amount of one's publications (in particular Google Scholar).
If you are writing your CV in Latex/LyX, I would suggest finding/creating BIBTEX entries for your papers then import the .bib file into your CV.


On my website I keep a list of my academic achievements. This only includes journal publications, official reports, and conference proceedings though. When I need to make a list of my most relevant publications, I take a look at that page. A nice way to tracking your papers and such is to create a Google Scholar Citations page. This automatically looks for your publications and keeps record of the number of citations you receive.
