Ama Rules for Numbers

“AMA keeps 4-digit numbers closed, and for larger numbers it opts for thin space” – again, this is a common British practice and this was also the style recommended in Scientific Style and Format (published by the Council of Science Editors, USA), which now suggests commas instead of thin spaces. I was also looking for “Chicago vs. AMA Style” and walked out empty-handed. Thanks for the intro!. References of: “AMA Manual of Style, 10th ed.” Incorrect percentages in the abstract. JAMA Oncol. 2017;3(12):1742. doi:10.1001/jamaoncol.2017.4368 Wednesday and Friday 10:15-11:30 Closed for convocation If a group or company is acting as the author of a work and there are no authors listed individually, use the name of the group as the author. Congratulations on joining AMA Stylists! I hope you can use your CMOS expertise to help your new colleagues apply hyphens more consistently and accurately, for example in page areas and complex connections.

For example: The World Health Organization (WHO)1 has found that iron deficiency can be a cause of lack of productivity. WHO advises avoiding coffee and tea with meals to counter iron deficiency.2. If you have three or more authors, specify the first author et al (note that for AMA in et al you do not put a period after al): If you refer in the text to a company that has an official abbreviation, you must write the name in full the first time you refer to it. But then you can establish the acronym and from there refer to it with the abbreviated form. “with initials for authors` first names, lowercase article titles, and a thrifty use of punctuation and spacing.” – closer to style in the physical and biological sciences in general. AMA does not specify specific formatting requirements for a title page. It only provides the information that should be included. The text of a WADA article usually consists of four sections: (p. 25) In the reference list, each entry should be considered independent of all other entries, as it is unlikely that anyone will read the entire list of references in the correct order.

Therefore, do not use abbreviations for corporate authors, but write their name completely every time. The authors follow the pattern of the initials of the surname (e.g. Brown JA) and are separated by a comma. Research conducted by Smith7 has shown a correlation between. In some cases, an article may not have an author. In these cases, start the reference with the title. In other cases, the author may remain anonymous. However, the word “anonymous” should not be used in a reference unless the word was published in the signature of the article. Note: It is not necessary to repeat the word “Anonymous” to represent a first and last name. “AMA almost never uses dots after abbreviations.” Dr.” still seems underdressed to me, even after a few months. Closer to the British style, which treats Dr. and M. as “contractions” (a subset of abbreviations where the abstract and the long version keep their first and last letters in the same positions, so no period in Dept and Ltd, but a dot after Prof.).

However, in my opinion, AMA is taking this to the extreme and even removes the dot after al in et al. Anonymous. Care cannot improve until complaints are heard. Bmj. 2012;345:E4511 doi:10.1136/bmj.e4511 If you only have two authors, you will always mention both authors in the sentence: In narrative quotes in the text, you mention the author`s names as part of the sentence. Place the reference number next to the author`s name. For example, if there are six or fewer authors/publishers, specify the names of all authors/publishers. If there are more than six authors/editors, list only the first three names, and then shorten them to et al. (e.g., Smith AA, Jones BA, Bloggs JC, et al.). Thank you very much for that.

I have been working with CMOS and CST for years and am interviewing for a job that uses AMA. I wanted a quick overview of some of the differences so I wouldn`t feel completely incompetent during the interview. It was perfect.
