Do I include the author’s name in my AMA in-text citations?

An AMA in-text citation just consists of the number of the relevant entry on your AMA reference page, written in superscript at the point in the text where the source is referred to.

You don’t need to mention the author of the source in your sentence, but you can do so if you want. It’s not an official part of the citation, but it can be useful as part of a signal phrase introducing the source.
