AMA Style Guide : Direct Quote

Direct Quote

A direct quote is taken word-for-word from the orignal text. Indicate it is a quote by using double quotation marks around the original phrase. The superscript appears after the quotation mark. If a quote is over four lines, use a block qoute instead.

Example:

"The basic ideas of a 'living-food' or 'raw food' diets are consuming all or primarily uncooked foods."4
