Currvita Bibliography Apa

5.1⁎The Package

The package [72] is quite simple, and should work with most classes. For example, you could just use it with the base class or you might want to include your CV in a letter, in which case you might want to use one of the -like classes.

The available package options are as follows:

Produces more compact vertical spacing.
Produces more generous vertical spacing. This is the default vertical spacing option.
Produces an “open” format for the bibliography.
This option is provided for use with the  [31] and  [32] packages and allows you to subdivide your publication list.
This option suppresses the date that by default is displayed at the bottom of the CV.

The date is set using:


(As per .) If you also want to specify a location next to the date, you can use:


The body of the CV is contained within the environment:


where ⟨⟩ is the title text, such as “Résumé” or “Curriculum Vitae” (or “Curriculum Vitæ” if you prefer to use a ligature).

The contents of the CV are typically divided into sections containing lists. These sections can be typeset within the environment using the environment:


where ⟨⟩ is the heading text for this list. Within the body of the environment, use the standard


command to start each item.

Recall from Volume 2 that you can generate a list of citations using BibTeX or . In a CV it's likely that you will want to include a list of publications without citing them. In this case, instead of using


you can use


to add the citations referenced in the comma-separated list ⟨⟩ without producing any text. Alternatively, you can add all entries defined in your file using an asterisk:

So if you want to include a list of your publications you can use with and (as described in Volume 2).

Exercise 15. Sample CV with Publications

Modify Example 25 so that it also includes a publications list. You can either use your own file or you can use the test file that's included in TeX distributions.

You can download or view a solution.

This book is also available as A4 PDF or 12.8cm x 9.6cm PDF or paperback (ISBN 978-1-909440-07-4).

I'm editing my CV and I wanted to use the package to make separate mini-bibliographies for different sections. Here is some code:

I couldn't figure out how to use so it is faster to provide here:

But when I put in , I get an unnumbered list of . What I want is a numbered bibliography, so that it looks something like:

Journal Papers

[1] A.D. Sarwate, "Foo is awesome", Journal of Foo Studies 12(3), 2009.

[2] A.D. Sarwate, "Bar is better", IEEE Transactions on Bar 8(2), 2010.

[3] A.D. Sarwate, "Baz is meh", Baz : Theory and Applications, Los Angeles, CA, June 2011.

and each is independently numbered. The lack of numbering I see now seems to not change with the bibliography style I use. Is there a way to force BibTeX to number each ?

Is this a problem with ? If I change the command to use then the command produces numbers like but the bibliography remains unnumbered.
