This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please provide a full minimal example. Just posting sniplets like this, makes it less likely to get help from others. Not everyone has experience with amsrefs – daleif Sep 13 '13 at 13:01
