Ladies, did you change your last name after getting married? I’m worried about the impact it will have on my publications.

Both my husband and I took each other’s last names and hyphenated. Apparently you can link all your publications to your new name on both academia and pub-med.


I didn't do it, I don't think it's necessary and my husband doesn't really care if I do either.

It really is a very personal decision that you have to make if you really want to do it, what do you want to do?

I changed my last name after I got married and I still use my single name for my publications.

I just got mine hyphenated, haven't found it too be a big deal so far. What exactly is your concern?

I didn't, but me and the hubby agreed it wasn't a big deal and neither of us really care since we think it's a bit silly. Talk to your partner and see how they feel about it

I changed mine. Although I haven't made any new publications since I'm recently married. On my resume I bolded my name on the publication since I published under my maiden name but the resume has my married name. My supervisor who has tons of publications both under her married and maiden name did the same thing. It shouldn't impact things too much if you decide to change it.

I kept mine, but a friend who changed hers said it wasn't a big deal at all.
