I do not understand the hostility here, nor do I understand the need to SHOUT.

Anyhow, a solution was already proposed: the listings on the SSC
archive. This includes (usually within days) references to all
articles appearing in the Stata Journal. A complete list of articles
can be found here: <http://ideas.repec.org/s/tsj/stataj.html>.

Say you want to download John Gallup's article in the latest Stata
Journal, than you look it up on the site given above, follow the link
(in this case <http://ideas.repec.org/a/tsj/stataj/v12y2012i1p3-28.html>)
and look for the heading "Bibliographic Info". There you will find
"Download reference", which will allow you to download a citation in
various formats, including the formats you asked for.
