Citations can vary greatly depending on how much information you have available and whether you are using an online or print resource.
The American Medical Association (AMA) style is widely used in medicine; however, if you intend to publish a paper, you should always check with the journal you wish to publish in to make sure that your citations fit within their required standards. For example, if you go to the homepage for the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association (JAOA), you'll see that they provide "Information for Authors". This page details how to submit and format a manucript for JAOA, including citation style required. Most journals provide this information for authors via their webpages.
Please refer to the AMA Manual of Style, 11th Edition, available at the library for detailed instructions on AMA citation style.
The following is a one-page reference sheet for AMA style. This sheet is a quick reference for standard AMA citations and the basic information they require. For more detailed information about citations, please refer to the AMA Manual of Style (11th ed.) or contact one of our librarians.
Use numbered superscripts when citing in-text to refer to corresponding references in your reference list.
