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.
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
The NLM Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers
Karen Patrias; Dan Wendling, Technical Editor.
National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health

Citing Medicine is a full text government publication that provides assistance to authors in compiling lists of references for their publications, to editors in revising such lists, to publishers in setting reference standards for their authors and editors, and to librarians and others in formatting bibliographic citations.
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.

This chapter presents style conventions for citing references within a manuscript and for listing complete reference citations. Many of the references in the examples were created to illustrate a style point under discussion; they may not be real references. Citing References in Text.
