AMA Manual of Style

AMA Manual of Style: A Guide for Authors and Editors is an online style guide by the editors of Journal of the American Medical Association, and published by Oxford University Press. The AMA format is widely used for citing sources in scholarly publications for medical research. First published in 1962, and currently in its tenth edition, the AMA Manual of Style covers a wide range of topics for authors and editors in medicine and related health fields. This online edition also has updates (style points that have changed since the last print edition), a blog, monthly tips from the editors, quizzes, and an SI unit conversion calculator.
