😕 What is an AMA Citation Generator?
An AMA citation generator is a tool that creates citations in the American Medical Association citation style. It analyzes the details of an article or academic paper--such as author, title, and publish date--and creates a formatted citation with them automatically. The formatted citation can then be used to give credit to others whose work has been referenced in an academic work or paper.
👩🎓 Who uses an AMA Citation Generator?
The AMA citation style is a variation of the Vancouver style, adapted by the American Medical Association, and is used in their publications:
- JAMA Network Open
- JAMA Cardiology
- JAMA Dermatology
- JAMA Health Forum
- JAMA Internal Medicine
- JAMA Neurology
- JAMA Oncology
- JAMA Ophthalmology
- JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery
- JAMA Pediatrics
- JAMA Psychiatry
- JAMA Surgery
If you are writing to be published in an AMA journal, or if you are a student in a health or medical field, then you will likely need to use AMA style citations to reference others' work within yours.
🙌 Why should I use a Citation Generator?
Every academic field, not just medical, will recommend using a tool to record references to others' work in your writing. A citation generator like MyBib can record this data, and can also automatically create an accurate reference list from it, with the necessary in-text citations too.
