Variable for journal initials or abbreviation?

Hello all, is there a variable to be used for pulling in either the journal’s initials or abbreviation? I have used {$contextName} but this is not the best format in some cases. Thanks for your help.

Hi @lsteele

Not by default, no. It would be an easy modification to make, however. You’d just need to edit the assignParams method in


And add it. perhaps something like:

'contextPath' => $this->context->getPath(),


Thanks @jnugent. Unfortunately, I am a good user but not a programmer, so I have the skills to make this change… I trust this variable will be added to the standard, in-use and available, variables within the project!
