The AMA Manual of Style is "is a must-have guide for anyone involved in medical and scientific publishing" (American Medical Association, 2017). AMA style has "increased international scope and recognition of the changes in the scientific publishing field associated with advances in technology, the Internet, and the electronic evolution of writing, editing, and publishing" (American Medical Association, 2017).
AMA is utilized most by those in the medical fields to cite sources, however, always confirm with your professor which style is required even if the course is in this discipline.
Keywords - some medical journals publish a short list (3-10) of keywords at the end of the abstract.
