CSS Citation Style Libguides
This LibGuide is to help you use the AMA style guide including:
- Reference Formats - examples and explanations for citing your sources in the various formats for your References list
- Formatting Your Paper - how to set up your paper including the margins, font, References list, headers and section breaks
- In-text Citations - also known as parenthetical notation - how to cite your references in the text of your paper
Note: This guide is in no way a replacement for the actual manual, which can be found in the Library on reserve or at a bookstore near you. Please consult the manual for authoritative information in greater detail. Also feel free to talk with a librarian for more help.
APA Style is commonly used for citing works in psychology and the health sciences. This is our locally maintained guide which provides basic instructions on formatting and citing in APA. As with AMA, the Library keeps copies of the manual on reserve at our Circulation Desk.
