Properly citing your sources is essential for several reasons, including:

  • Proper credit should always be given to the authors of the work you use in your paper.
  • Not citing properly is considered plagiarism. 

AMA Style

AMA has many differences from other standard citation styles. For instance, unlike other common style guides, you do not list your references in alphabetical order in AMA.
