Excerpt from List of Abbreviations Employed in Experiment Station Record for Titles of Periodicals, 1905 In general, the abbreviations used are those which have been quite commonly employed by others, although there are some departures. A simple form of abbreviation has been adopted, sufficiently full to suggest the title of the publication to one familiar with the literature. The aim has been to make the reader in a measure independent of any key, so far as the more common periodicals are concerned. There are many publications, however, which are less familiar to most readers, and hence a list giving the full title will be helpful in looking up articles in the original. The plan has been to follow the order of words as they appear in the full title, omitting unnecessary words. Brevity has been sought, but not to the extent of sacrificing clearness. The orthographical usages of the various languages have not been followed strictly. In some cases long, composite words have been split up in making the abbreviations, for the sake of brevity and clearness. So much variation exists in the capitalization of important words in the title, even among journals in the same language, that it has been thought best to adopt the plan of capitalizing the principal words in all cases, regardless of the usages of the individual journals or the countries from which they are issued. This simplifies the abbreviations, at the same time giving rather more prominence to the words, and it removes a constant source of error in proof reading. The same rule has been followed in the full title, the principal words being capitalized, as is customary with publications issued in English.
