List of Title Word Abbreviations or LTWA is standard abbreviations for words commonly found in serial titles. LTWA includes has more than 56,000 words and their abbreviations in about 65 languages, it is a vast database. These abbreviated words serve as the basis for constituting “abbreviated key titles” published in the ISSN Register. So might consist of words from LTWA that are formed according to ISO4 by ISSN.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has appointed the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) International Centre as the registration authority for ISO 4. ISO 4 (Information and documentation – Rules for the abbreviation of title words and titles of publications) is an international standard that marks a static system for the abbreviation of serial publication titles. According to ISO4, terms are abbreviated according to LTWA. It is a list that is filled with all the uniform abbreviations used for words in scientific excerpts. It is based on ISO 4.

International Standard for Serial Numbers provides guidelines for abbreviating titles of serials and, if required, non-serial documents by using alphabets from languages like Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek.

How to abbreviate Journal Titles

  • Words in the can also be abbreviated by the help of contraction (omission of a few internal letters).

PLOS Biology

PLOS Biology publishes significant advances across the biological sciences. And we push boundaries.  Designed to advance science and the communities who depend upon it, we’re transforming research communication to fit the research process. Evolving article types and policies empower authors to share the full story behind their science with a global audience of researchers, educators, policymakers, patient advocacy groups, and the public.  PLOS Biology Scope PLOS Biology is the flagship PLOS journal in the life sciences and features works of exceptional significance, originality, and relevance in all areas of biological science and at every scale; from molecules to ecosystems, including works at the interface of other disciplines. We also welcome data-driven meta-research articles that evaluate and aim to improve the standards of research in the life sciences and beyond.   Criteria for Publication PLOS Biology is highly selective and publishes significant advances resulting from original lines of inquiry that have a broad impact in their field and across other disciplines. To be considered for publication, work must also demonstrate a high standard of scientific rigor in its methodology, reporting, and conclusions.   What does PLOS Biology stand for?
