NY Medical College Health Sciences Library AMA Tip Sheet

This resource discusses references page formatting for the American Medical Association (AMA) style sheet. AMA was developed by the American Medical Association for the purpose of writing medical research. These resources provide guidance on how to cite sources using American Medical Association (AMA) Style, 10th Ed., including examples for print and electronic sources.

AMA at the OWL

For AMA style, the references are found at the end of a manuscript and are titled “Reference List,” and each item should be listed in numerical order (two references should not be combined under a single reference number) as opposed to alphabetically. Additionally, each item should be single-spaced.(The OWL)

The Vancouver Style is based on a style adapted by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) from the text below:

Citing Medicine, 2nd edition

Trinity College American Chemistry Society

The hallmark of the American Chemical Society (ACS) style is expediency. ACS represents the more team-based production of knowledge in the sciences by including all names listed as authors in the bibliographic citation. ACS allows for the representation of authors' first names with the initial, another convention that contributes to the brevity of bibliographical references rendered in ACS style.
