AMA Style: Home

A guide to citing in AMA style.

What is AMA Style?

"...the AMA Manual of Style, since its inaugural version in 1962, and with this 11th edition, is truly the standard, and in the words of one colleague, "the bible of medical publishing." Written by the editorial staff at JAMA and the JAMA Network-including physicians, manuscript editing managers, and current and former managing editors-it is the single most comprehensive text focused solely on medical publishing."

- excerpt from the AMA Manual of Style : A Guide for Authors and Editors, 11th ed.
