Feature suggestion: smart Jounral Abbr column

Currently in the item list two columns relating to the journal title can be shown: Publication and Journal Abbr.

The problem with Publication is that journal titles tend to be long and tend start with the same words, so it's often not possible to distinguish between them on a not too wide screen (mine's 1280px wide, but smaller ones aren't uncommon on netbooks). The Journal Abbr column should solve this, but it's not very useful in its current state as this value is often missing.

A much more useful column would be one that displays the Journal Abbreviation if available, and displays the full journal title otherwise. Or even better: try to abbreviate the title automatically using one of the many available abbreviation lists.

This would improve usability (considerably for certain use cases).
