If you are writing about medical research, it is likely that you\u2019ll need to be familiar with the AMA referencing system. Here, we\u2019ll look at how to cite a newspaper article in AMA referencing, including both print and online articles.\r\nHow to Cite a Newspaper Article in AMA Referencing\r\nAMA is a Vancouver-style number\u2013endnote system. This means that we cite sources with superscript numbers in the text, which correspond to a numbered reference list at the end of the document. For example:\r\nThe past decade has seen a dramatic rise in levels of tooth decay.1\r\nMake sure to number sources in the order you first cite them in your work. So, for example, the citation above would be for the first source in the reference list, and the next source would be cited with a superscript '2'. If you cite a source more than once, simply use the same number as on the first citation.\r\nIf you quote from a newspaper article, add a page number in brackets after the citation number. For example, if we quoted from page 24 of a source, our citation would need to include 'p.24' in brackets after the superscript '2':\r\nColourful toothbrushes can \u2018encourage children to brush regularly\u2019.2(p24)\r\nAMA Reference List: Print Newspaper Articles\r\nIn an AMA reference list, the standard format for a print newspaper article is:\r\nn. Author Name(s) and Initial(s). Article Title. Newspaper Name. Date of newspaper, section (if applicable), page number(s).\r\nIn practice, then, we would list a print newspaper article like this:\r\n1. Davis L. Dental Health Worsens Across UK. The Times. 5 October 2012, 8-9.\r\nAMA Reference List: Online Newspaper Articles\r\nFor an online newspaper article, the citation format is similar to the one set out above. The only difference is that you'll need to give the date on which you accessed the article and the URL in place of section\/page numbers:\r\nn. Author Name(s) and Initial(s). Article Title. Newspaper Name. Date of publication. Accessed date. URL\r\nWe would therefore list an online newspaper article as follows\r\n2. Gonzalez J. How Can We Improve Children\u2019s Dental Health? Medical News Today. 13 December 2016. Accessed 4 March 2020. https:\/\/www.medicalnewstoday.com\/articles\/improving-childrens-dental-health\r\nAnd if you\u2019d like an expert to check your referencing, we can help!
