Finding Journal Abbreviations

Q: What does Anat Histol Embryol stand for?

Q:What’s the official abbreviation for JVECC?

Need help with a journal abbreviation?

Two good resources:

PubMed’s Journals Database: Enter in title words or abbreviation. The Journals database does list both MEDLINE abbreviation and ISO abbreviation (more often than not these are the same). If you’re preparing a manuscript, check the instructions for authors on which official abbreviation to use.

CAS Source Index (CASSI): From the American Chemical Society. Choose Title or Abbreviation from the drop-down menu. Does not include all veterinary journals, but does include some science journals not found in PubMed.

A: Anatomia, histologia, embryologia

A: J Vet Emerg Crit Care

Bonus question: How is Vaccine abbreviated?

Trick question! One-word journal titles are not abbreviated.

CABI News release

Monday 30 November 2009

CAB Abstracts hits six million records

CABI’s life sciences bibliographic database, CAB Abstracts, has reached six million records. This important milestone means that users have a complete perspective of international research through access to an ever increasing number of key scientific articles.

“The six million record milestone shows how we continue to expand our service and now we also include the full text of hard-to-find literature, 65,000 articles to date, to add further value for our customers,” said Dr Shaun Hobbs, Global Director of Content Development at CABI.

CAB Abstracts is a comprehensive bibliographic, abstracting and indexing database that covers over 150 countries, and over 50 languages. The subject coverage is extensive, including all aspects of agriculture, environment, veterinary sciences, applied economics, food science and nutrition.

As well as selecting from thousands of core scientific journals, CAB Abstracts also offers extensive coverage of  ‘grey’ literature from around the world including: annual reports, general reports, books/book chapters, handbooks, bulletins, monographs, conference proceedings, newsletters, discussion papers, technical information, field notes and theses.

CAB Abstracts full text content consists of journal articles, conference papers and reports – 75% of which are not available electronically anywhere else.

EndNote and the New PubMed

With the PubMed redesign, the instructions for exporting citations from PubMed to EndNote have changed slightly.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. In PubMed, perform your search.
  2. Use the check boxes to mark the items you want to export to EndNote. You can send the items to the Clipboard for later downloading using the Send to drop-down menu.
  3. When you are ready to export your citation (or from the Clipboard), click the Send to menu.
  4. Select File under Choose Destination.
  5. Select MEDLINE from the Format drop-down menu.
  6. Click Create File (you may need to turn off pop-up blockers).
  7. Save the file to your desktop as a .txt document.
  8. In EndNote, choose File > Import.
  9. Under Import Data, browse to find your .txt file.
  10. Select PubMed (NLM) filter for the Import Option. If you do not see PubMed (NLM) on the drop-down menu, click Other Filters. Browse to PubMed (NLM).
  11. Click Import

Note: Most browsers require you to save the PubMed information as a .txt file and then use the PubMed (NLM) filter to import records.

However, depending on your browser and settings, you may be able to Open the text file with EndNote instead of saving it (step 7 above). If you open the text file with EndNote, choose the PubMed (NLM) filter in order to import your records.

Of course, you can still connect to PubMed from within EndNote using the PubMed (NLM) connection file. The connection file is great for quickly getting known items into your EndNote library. However, if you’re doing extensive subject searching, it’s best to search PubMed directly to take advantange of its searching capabilities–and then export those citations to EndNote.

PubMed Redesign

The new PubMed has arrived.

Major changes include:

Limits, History, and Details tabs have been consolidated into the Advanced Search.

MeSH terms available on the Abstract Display. [No more Citation display or AbstractPlus display.]

Results filters have been moved to the right.

The link to the Clipboard only displays if there are items in the Clipboard.

Searching capabilities (automatic term mapping; etc.) remain the same.

More information can be found in NLM’s Technical Bulletin and in PubMed’s tutorials
