AMA Style Guide : Home

The AMA style provides a way to cite (give credit) to the web pages, articles, books and other sources used in research. This guide will help you with creating in-text citations and references, formatting your paper, and other useful information.


In-text citations are brief references to your sources and indicate where the information came from and when it was published. They appear in the body of your work.


The reference page appears at the end of your paper/project and provides detailed information on all sources cited in-text.


AMA requires papers be set up using a specific format. A sample paper is included in this section.
