Publication list - do you put papers/journals in preparation in it?

    publication list -- do you put papers/journals in preparation in it?

    As titled, when you apply for jobs do you put papers/articles that are in preparation (so they are not even posted on the arXiv) in your CV or publication list?

    If the result has not been shown in public yet - arXiv or conference - I don't include it.

    If you have a paper accepted for publication but not yet actually published, or a conference has invited you to present a paper or a keynote speech, or a journal/magazine has commissioned you to write an article, I wouldn't see any problem including those and stating where and/or when they will eventually appear.

    But for anything else, what V50 said.

    I've gotten very different advice from professors on this. Some say don't include anything that hasn't been accepted to a journal, some say you can include it after you submit it, and my most recent adviser wants me to include publications in preparation (but only ones I am first author on and having a working draft for). And it may also depend on what the publication list is for - for grants, including in-prep work might be more accepted, since you may be applying for funding or time from the same organization and want to show them you're making progress with their money/time from previous cycles.
