Keep in mind that HR and your future bosses will want to know as efficiently as possible if you're fit for the job.
In that respect I think you should mention chosen publications, in particular those fulfilling as many of certain criteria as possible: The field you worked in is relevant for the job, you played a main role in the research, you still remember well what you did there (and can respond well in case they ask detail questions about it).
Pick about 3-5 such publications and mention the rest as a summary (for instance say the number of others or a plain list of just the titles, or add a link to a website where they could see them all, perhaps even download and read them if they're interested).
In general there are no strict rules how a resume should be, but most of the time facts count higher than attributes you give yourself. So instead of writing a lot about who you are and how well you're team-oriented and such phrases give them a really good list of your former works. If that's research, then it's research.
