6.3.1 - Bibcodes
The bibliographic codes are generated from the journal, volume and page information for each publication. The form of the bibliographic code is:
L: Letter P: Pink page Q-Z: Unduplicating character for identical codes
This list should be checked for the abbreviations of journals as well as for conference proceedings or symposia. If you need to compose your own abbreviation for a conference, please try to use the first letter of each important word for JJJJJ, capitalizing the letter for a journal. For a conference proceeding or symposia, we use "conf" for conference abstracts or "proc" or for proceedings abstracts in place of VVVV. Bibliographic codes will be verified before they are entered into the system.
PhD Theses should be named YYYYPhDT..........A where YYYY is the year and A is the author initial. When the abstract is merged into the system, a counter will be added, if necessary, in the PPPP field to determine uniqueness.
Once a bibcode has been built, there is a Verification Utility available that allows the user to determine whether a given bibcode exists in the ADS.
The bibliographic codes are selected so that they match the codes used by the SIMBAD project.
