I am a student from Hong Kong.
I am applying to research degrees soon, most of which need the CV of the applicants. I have no peer-reviewed academic publications, and my blank publication column does not look good on my CV.
However, I have recently submitted an article to a local newspaper (which is pretty famous in Hong Kong) and it was published, although I used a pen name rather than my real name.
The topic of the article should be closely related to my field as it tries to correlate Max Weber's theory and local politics.
Can I consider it a publication of mine and write it on my CV? Thank you!

Yes of course mention it.
And it would be highly unusual if you did have a peer-reviewed publication if you're only just applying to research degrees.
