Author Name. Name of Presentation. Poster or Paper presented at: Name of Conference; Date of Conference; Location of Conference.
Beyer CM. Building Together: Collaborating with faculty to integrate information literacy into a first year interprofessionalism course. Poster presented at: The Medical Library Association Annual Meeting; May 20, 2014; Chicago, IL.
I am accustomed to seeing the precise dates of the conference in the reference: eg, May 1-3, 2014.
I checked the manual, and you can put the exact date of the presentation (ex. May 20), or the dates of the conference (ex. May 18-22). Either is acceptable. Remember that if the poster topic turns into a published paper, you cite the paper.
What about for in-text citation of a scientific poster? How would that be cited?
In AMA style, an in-text citation is indicated by a superscript number that coordinates with the full citation at the end of your paper. This page from Purdue Owl demonstrates how this is done: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/ama_style/index.html
As per AMA style, do you have to list all the authors or just the first 3 or the presenting author? Thank you
In AMA style, you need to list all the authors unless there are more than 6 authors. In those cases, you would list the first 3 authors then put "et al." afterward.
