Follow this priority list when abbreviating journal titles:
- Use the abbreviation designated by the journal itself. For example, you may find the statement: "Cite as: ...."
- Create abbreviations based on commonly abbreviated words (e.g., J for Journal, Rev for Review) and analogy. Omit punctuation. Omit spaces between capital letters, except U for University (e.g., use Monash U L Rev not Monash UL Rev)
- Consult Prince's Dictionary of Legal Abbreviations.
- Use the full title.
