[Tex/LaTex] How to abbreviate journal name in citation


I'm writing my research proposal and my supervisor wants me to abbreviate the journal name (and remove part of the month from the publication date). How can I achieve that?

I am using BibTeX and my .bib file holds the full journal name. I writing using Emacs on an Arch Linux machine. I don't really mind switching to other LaTeX format but I don't know anything about them.

A while back I created a package and some BibTeX styles for automatic journal abbreviations that uses the ISSN database to do exactly this: https://github.com/compholio/jabbrv

This is now included as an Overleaf template: https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/automatic-journal-abbreviations/mxfsdscmvxcr

Edit: Changed link to git repository (old link: http://www.compholio.com/latex/jabbrv/)
