The CBE format for journals has three elements: (1) author; (2) title; and (3) journal information, consisting of the journal title and the year and month of publication, ending with a semicolon; the volume number (or issue number in parentheses), a colon, followed by the inclusive page numbers. Journal titles longer than one word are abbreviated according to the standard form used in most biological and medical journals: articles, conjunctions, and prepositions are dropped unless they are part of a name or a scientific or technical term; at least the last two letters of all remaining words are dropped (for example "Microbiology" is abbreviated "Microbiol" and "Journal" is abbreviated "J"). The first letter of each word in a journal title is capitalized.
