AMA Citation Style

There are many different styles that are used to cite resources. Often, the Modern Language Association (MLA) style of formatting a paper is used for Humanities, English, Literature, and Language disciplines. The American Psychological Association (APA) style of formatting a paper is used, often, for some of the sciences. However, the American Medical Association has the AMA style that is used for citing sources in medical research. Some of the medical disciplines, such as physical therapy, recommend the use of the AMA style for citing resources. If you are familiar with using MLA and APA styles, but are new to AMA style, then you will notice some substantial differences with the AMA style. The following guides at the following colleges will give some of the basics of AMA citation style based on the AMA Manual of Style: A Guide for Authors and Editors, 10th edition. The call number for this book is Ref. R 119 .A533 2007 and can be found in the Reference collection.
