In Text Citation Basics
Every citation style uses two types of citation: In text and Bibliographic.
In text citation gives credit to someone else's work in your paper, right when you use it. In AMA style, in text citations are noted with small numbers called superscript. The first source that you cite will be number one, the second source you cite will be number 2, and so on. Any time you refer to that particular source, it will keep the same number. The assigned number will correspond with the order of your references page.
The superscript number will come at the end of the sentence, after the period and quotation marks (if any).
"Social medial is harmful to teens." 1
Video games cause dyslexia.3
If you use more than one source in a sentence, note all numbers at the end.
Example: Multiple studies have found that bullying is now more prevalent online.2-4, 6
How you create superscript numbers will depend on which word processing software you use. Use this guide for creating superscript numbers in Microsoft Word and Google Docs.
