AMA Style Guide

Introduction

This is a guide to the most frequently used reference types, based on the online AMA Manual of Style: A  Guide for Authors and Editors.  If you don't see an example for your type of reference, consult the manual. It is available online.

The reference style followed by JAMA and its related journals was developed from recommendations contained in the ICMJE Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals  (formerly known as the Vancouver style) and the National Library of Medicine's recommendations found in Citing Medicine:The NLM Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers.

Please note:  Double-check any automatically generated citations for accuracy, such as from RefWorks, EndNote, CINAHL, etc.
