ABBREVIATION: Selected Periodical and Journal Abbreviation and Acronym
Dictionaries on the Internet and in Print

In conducting research on any topic, one frequently uses a publication
that cites in footnotes or in its bibliography an article source that
appears to be very important or helpful, but the citation only has the
abbreviated title for the journal or magazine that published the article.
How can one find the accurate title for this periodical?


Listed in this document is a website with a major list of periodical
abbreviation finding tools (Journal Abbreviation Sources) on a large group
of websites. Additionally, this document contains other website listings
that provide decoding tools, either lists or search engines for periodical
abbreviations or lists by journal full title with abbreviation so that the
internet browsers "edit/find on page" search capability can be used to
locate the abbreviation in the list of journal titles. A few print
publications of this type are also listed.
