resume question

has anyone here, either as an undergraduate or graduate, published articles/essays in scholarly journals? if so, how did u incorporate that into your resume? im speaking for the case when one has only ONE publication... it'd be kinda tedious to have a separate section with the heading 'Publications" no?? should i include it in the honors/awards-section of the resume? any suggestions?

Were you working with a professor or something like that, or was the publication written independently?  If you were working with a prof, you can add a subsection describing your work and site the publication.  Otherwise, I'd make another section entitled "Publications."  One way or another, make sure the publication is highlighted.  Pubs are a big accomplishment and shouldn't be downplayed by being lumped into the honors/awards section.
