When I collect bibliographic material, I seem to get grossly inconsistent information. Papers from the same journal are often linked to different publishers, the same journal or publisher is often stylized differently (e.g. Wiley, Wiley-Liss, Wiley & Sons), location information about the same publisher is different (see http://academia.stackexchange.com/questions/25703/what-address-to-put-in-bibliography-for-springer-and-othersWhat address to put in bibliography for Springer (and others)?).

Maybe I'm a bit obsessive, but I would like to be consistent when citing papers from the same journal/publisher, especially in my thesis.

Is there any source for authoritative information about journals and publishers? Also: Is there a good guide for the semantics of the different fields in a bib entry? If I knew, for example, that what goes into the publisher field should be the registered trademark or the trade name, I could work out some of these on my own.

(BTW: I'm using Citeulike's mechanism for getting bibliographic info for most of the papers I cite.)

How to get authoritative bibliographic information about journals

When I collect bibliographic material, I seem to get grossly inconsistent information. Papers from the same journal are often linked to different publishers, the same journal or publisher is often stylized differently (e.g. Wiley, Wiley-Liss, Wiley & Sons), location information about the same publisher is different (see http://academia.stackexchange.com/questions/25703/what-address-to-put-in-bibliography-for-springer-and-others).
