This can be due to the output style you are using, or that you did not import the journal term lists, which link the abbreviations to the full titles.
To check the output style
Go to Edit > Output Styles >
Then if the style you are using shows up as "Edit stylename" click that, otherwise choose Open Style Manager, click on the style name and click Edit.
In the left menu, click on Journal Names
Select the button next to the Abbreviation you want (Abrev 1 has punctuation, 2 does not).
If the correct abbreviation is selected already, then the journal term list needs to be imported.
To do this,
Go to Tools > Open Term Lists > Journal term List
In the Terms tab, the journals will probably not have appropriate abbreviations, so select them all (control A on a windows machine) and click Delete term
Then go to the Lists tab
Select Import list
Find the list you need at C:\program Files\EndNote\term Lists
Hope this helps.
