How do I find the correct journal abbreviation for my AMA style citation?

The appropriate journal abbreviations for American Medical Association (AMA) style citations can be found by looking in the journal record in the NLM Catalog in PubMed. If your title is not in the NLM Catalog, the AMA Manual of Style 11th Edition offers advice for abbreviating journal titles in Chapter 13.10 "Abbreviations: Names of Journals."
