Generating a CV from SPIRES
Take a look at a
CV created with our CV format.. If you have some basic
LaTeX experience, you can generate your own.
- Find the papers you want on your CV, make sure that the results you
are looking at are exactly what you want, you may want to use HEPNames,
author browsing, affiliation searching, and other tricks to get the best
set of papers. (More Info)
- Select CV Format from the formats menu at the top of your
results page and select Date (Descending) (or whatever sort you
want) and click "Display Again"
- Copy the output to your own computer
- Customize to taste, and make the modifications below (if desired)
- Use latex <filename> or your favorite latex engine
- Print, frame, hang on wall, etc.
Adding Live Links
If you have pdflatex you can use the pdflatex command to
generate a pdf file with hyperlinks (example)
- Uncomment the \href
commands in each entry
- Uncomment the use package command (12 lines)
at the top of the file
- pdflatex <filename>
- Post to your nearest website, email to friends and family, etc.
Note: Be careful to uncomment only the
\href lines and the use package lines. (See Below)
Other Helpful Tips
- Be careful to narrow your search to find only papers by the author or group
you are interested in. See our author searching
help for more help with this.
- To get live links uncomment the \href and the use package lines
only. Comments on item, cite, the second comments on
the use package lines, and the %
embedded within the href lines need to remain in
place. (I.e. %\href->\href or more regularly: s/%\href/\href/.)
- The use package comments, if you are using the pdf option,
need to go near the top of your document, with other use package
- The options within use package command can be commented or
uncommented separately, in case you want certain features and not
- If you
have trouble making the format work, just leave everything commented out
and try it with regular LaTeX, sometimes the pdf links are a bit finicky.
