AMA Manual of Style, the 'Bible' for Medical and Scientific Publishing, Gains Online Presence
Date:6/29/2009

NEW YORK, June 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Oxford University Press is proud to present the launch of the first online version of the international best-selling AMA Manual of Style, the "bible" for authors, editors, students, researchers, the media, and anyone else involved in medical or scientific publishing. Because scientific, medical, and pharmaceutical innovation progresses through clear written communication, the success of a new treatment hinges on how well the evidence to support its effectiveness is disseminated to the wider community. And with the health of millions of individuals at stake every day, one misstep in keeping to ethical publishing guidelines as set out by the AMA Manual of Style can mean public and lasting shame for a researcher or institution.

With that said, for success in a career in medical or scientific research or the healthcare and healthcare communications industries, in-depth familiarity with the AMA Manual of Style is a prerequisite. To start out on one of these career paths, being familiar with the manual is a way to stand out as detail-oriented and attentive to ethical concerns. Especially in the U.S., which is home to some of the most prestigious medical and science journals in the world, and an increasingly competitive marketplace. Meaning, it is no longer optional for high achievers to ignore this crucial tool for communicating effectively.

Now that the AMA Manual of Style is online, it is easy to navigate and is kept up-to-date by a committee of editors from JAMA and the Archives Journals, one of the most well-known gatekeepers of scientific communication. The site walks the user through everything from preparing an article for publication, visual presentation of data, and correct usage to scientific misconduct and intellectual property.

In addition, users are offered numerous other online features, including:

  • Style policy changes highlighted and explained
  • Learning and training exercises
  • An extensive conversion calculator for the International System of Units
  • Exclusive commentary and tips from editors of JAMA and the Archives Journals
  • Comprehensive publishing glossary and usage guidelines
  • Open URL bibliographic references.

These are just a few of the capabilities of the AMA Manual of Style Online. "Whether you are an Internet junkie or just want a very good source of information, the AMA Manual of Style Online is effective, efficient, educational, and just plain fun," says Catherine D. DeAngelis, MD, MPH, Editor, JAMA, and Editor in Chief, Scientific Publications & Multimedia Applications, JAMA and the Archives Journals.
