Weird/Difficult Chemical Journal Abbreviations Chemistry Subject Guide
Here is a list of some of those older
journal abbreviations that cause us so much trouble every once in a while:
A = Justus Liebigs Annalen der Chemie
Ann. = Justus Liebigs Annalen der Chemie
Annalen = Justus Liebigs Annalen der Chemie
B = Berichte der Deutschen Chemischen Gesellschaft
Ber. = Berichte der Deutschen Chemischen Gesellschaft [merged parts A & B to form Chemische Berichte]
Monshft. = Monatshefte für Chemie [or Monatshefte fuer Chemie]
J = Journal of the Chemical Society. London
Journal = Journal of the Chemical Society. London
These are all of the one's which I remember coming up
for ancient references: I might have missed others in the vast woodwork
of older chemical journals...
