Citing Medicine Guidance

The rule in Citing Medicine is that journal titles should be abbreviated according to a standard list of abbreviations.  The PubMed database, among others, uses these abbreviations.  For student assignments you should give the names of journals in full.  Swansea University Medical School explicitly require full journal titles for assessed work.  (if you are writing for publication you should follow the advice given in the instructions for Authors  section of the journal you will be submitting to.)
