The American Medical Association (AMA) style was created by editors of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). AMA style specifies writing and citation styles for scholarly works in medicine. AMA style is internationally recognized and is used throughout disciplines in the health sciences. The AMA Manual of Style was first published in 1963, and is currently in its 11th edition (2020). This guide was created primarily for the School of Pharmacy at the University of Southern California. The School continues to use 10th ed style for the 2019-2020 academic year and all material on this guide covers the 10th edition.
