Many publishers ask for abbreviations for journal names in the bibliography.
I have checked the links which either need to build the list from the start: is there a tool , or is there a transparent way, or talk about best package
glossaries to build the list from ground zero as well, or modify the
.bst with a new
journal.abbrev function and other changes Abbreviation using .bst, or a compholio package which is not simple or 'general' for using it.
But none of those meets the need.
Endnote has a lot of
.txt files as terms list, with names separated by
Tabs, e.g. (the block quotes below cannot show the
Tabs before the
Journal of Business and Psychology J. Bus. Psychol. J Bus Psychol
Journal of Business Strategy J. Bus. Strategy J Bus Strategy
Journal of Cancer Education J. Cancer Educ. J Cancer Educ
The term-lists contain more than 10k names, which are sufficient for general use.
My question is, are there similar files/packages for BibTeX/LaTeX to
import/include, which are general enough for normal
.bst to process and output the abbreviated journal names to the bibliography in the PDF?
If no such files/packages, is there a way for BibTeX/LaTeX to use term-lists from Endnote? or other reference management software, such as JabRef or Mendeley? (though I have not tried JabRef, and cannot find how to EXPORT the list from Mendeley, which cannot be copied/pasted into .txt or excel. Any ideas how to EXPORT Mendeley's list?)
Any hints are appreciated. Thanks a lot!
