only judging from your example I would say it is possible. Try using 
"alwaysActivePIDlist" set to the Journals ID, so journals is expanded by 
default. Then wrap that part in a TS condition to only have that opened 
by default if you are on an abstract page or subpage.

so basically (in pseudocode) it should look like

[PIDinRootline = abstractspage]
temp.myleftmenu.alwaysActivePIDlist = journals_page
