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.

The Basics

  1. 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)
  2. 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"
  3. Copy the output to your own computer
  4. Customize to taste, and make the modifications below (if desired)
  5. Use latex <filename> or your favorite latex engine
  6. 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)

  1. Uncomment the \href commands in each entry
  2. Uncomment the use package command (12 lines) at the top of the file
  3. pdflatex <filename>
  4. 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 commands.
  • The options within use package command can be commented or uncommented separately, in case you want certain features and not others.
  • 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.
