This is a guide to the most frequently used reference types, based on the AMA Manual of Style: A Guide for Authors and Editors, 10th ed, c2007. If you don't see an example for your type of reference, consult the manual.
The reference style followed by JAMA and its related journals was developed from recommendations contained in the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (also known as the Vancouver style, developed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors) and the National Library of Medicine's recommendations found in Citing Medicine:The NLM Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers.
Please note: Double-check any automatically generated citations for accuracy, such as from RefWorks, EndNote, CINAHL, etc.
