AMA Style is a variation of the Vancouver system devised by the American Medical Association (AMA). The University supports the use of the 11th edition of the AMA Manual of Style, which is used in the School of Medicine at Notre Dame.
AMA is an author-number style, which means a number is placed in the text to correspond to the author name(s) in the reference list, which are listed numerically in order of appearance.
Please see examples and detailed instructions throughout this guide, noting quick reference materials below in the sample reference list, and on the Quick Reference Guide page.
The University Library provides students with free access to EndNote and RefWorks citation management software. Both have the same purpose: to make the management and formatting of references more streamlined. It is worth looking at both tools to determine which one could be right for you, depending on how you like to work.
