It seems like it might be better to rely on unique identifiers such as DOI or PubMed ID. DOI links are commonly used in references in the online version of an article, and they usually include a unique short name or number that corresponds to the journal.

Absolutely, definitively, unquestionably correct. It's hard to imagine a more pointless waste of researcher time than searching the numerous incompatible list of journal title abbreviations so that they can make their work less comprehensible. Thank you for publishing this preprint.
By the way, the abbreviation for the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology seems to be J. vertebr. Paleont., which is hardly even abbreviated.
