Journal Abbreviations

Use CASSI (Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index) for standard abbreviations of journal names.

While CASSI is your best source of abbreviations, you can also check the following online sources:

  • Chemical Abstracts Service. Core Journals Covered in CAplus. http://www.cas.org/sent.html.
  • All That JAS: Journal Abbreviation Sources (listing of Web sites that list complete journal titles and abbreviations)
  • NCBI Journals Database (PubMed)
