9780195176339: AMA Manual of Style: A Guide for Authors and Editors

For decades indispensable, the AMA Manual of Style continues to provide editorial support to the medical and scientific publishing community. Since the 1998 publication of the 9th edition, however, the world of medical publishing has rapidly modernized, and the intersection of research and publishing has become ever more complex. The 10th edition of the AMA Manual of Style brings this definitive manual into the 21st century with a broadened international perspective.

In doing so, the 10th edition has expanded its electronic guidelines, with the understanding that authors now routinely submit articles through online systems and often cite Web-only content. Ethical and legal issues receive increased attention, with detailed guidelines on authorship, conflicts of interest, scientific misconduct, intellectual property, and the protection of individuals' rights in scientific research and publication. The new edition examines research ethics and editorial independence and features new material on indexing and searching as well as medical nomenclature.

The JAMA Network, one of the most respected groups of medical publications in the world, have lent members of their expert staff of professional journal editors to the committee that has produced this edition. Extensively peer-reviewed, the 10th edition provides a welcome and improved standard for the growing international medical community. More than a style manual, this 10th edition offers invaluable guidance on how to navigate the dilemmas that authors and researchers and their institutions, medical editors and publishers, and members of the news media who cover scientific research confront in a society that has thrust these issues center stage. Also available in an online version!

About the Author:


JAMA and the Archives Journals, one of the most respected groups of medical publications in the world, have lent members of their expert staff of professional journal editors to the committee that has produced this edition.

Review:


"The 10th edition instructs writers how to attach audio and video clips, as well as links to Web-based supplementary material. It also instructs them how to reference research that, in addition to books pulled from the library stacks, might include Web sites, messages from e-mail lists, or online-conference proceedings...The new Oxford University Press version also has an expanded, 175-page chapter on ethical and legal concerns, including conflict of interest, scientific misconduct, intellectual-property rights, and protection of research subjects' rights in scientific research and publication."--Chronicle of Higher Education


"Essential tool for physicians and other health professionals. In addition to the basics of grammar and citation, it leads writers through the thickets of abbreviation, nomenclature, and quantitation."--Booklist


"The manual is comprehensive and detailed, and I can't think of a single relevant aspect of medical and scientific writing that is not covered here."--Doody's, a 5 star review


"For medical writers and editors, the AMA Manual of Style remains the unrivaled point of departure."--Copyediting


"The manual is thorough and authoritative...the content is carefully referenced, and the references on all topics are impressively up-to-date."--Review from The Journal of the European Medical Writers Association


"This excellent manual offers the means to produce essays, articles or research papers that are well organized and authoritative."--Nursing Standard


"The manual's expository style is exemplary. It is relaxed and unpretentious...The manual covers impressive new territory."--The Editorial Eye
