Health Sciences Citations

Citing a source means acknowledging where you got a specific quote, fact, graphic, data, or idea from.  A citation is all the information needed to describe a source, such as (but not limited to) the author, title, publisher, page numbers, and publication date. Information in citations follows a specific format or style.

Which citation style you use can depend on what subject or discipline you are writing for or on the preference of you professor.

The Health Sciences programs most often use AMA or APA citation styles.  The guides below offer help in understanding how to apply these styles.
