I'm a newbie in latex.I have installed texlive 2014 in centos linux. I have been using apacite for bibliography. Now I need to get AMA citation style.


The above mentioned latex codes for apacite style.


If I run the above code to create AMA style bibliography, am getting an error "amacite.sty not found". And I don't have AMA related files in texlive. So how to download AMA files to texlive and use it in latex file. Pls help!

  • google returns no hits for an amacite.bst so it does not appear to be available in general. That does not mean it does not exist, but whichever journal submission rules said you should use that style must also tell you where to get the file from. – David Carlisle Dec 2 '14 at 13:56
  • Then no solution for this ?? – vidhya Dec 2 '14 at 13:58

    You must have got the instructions to use that style from somewhere. You need to check with them. Perhaps it was a typo and they meant apacite, perhaps it is a private style that they have, I can not guess. – David Carlisle Dec 2 '14 at 14:00

There is no amacite.sty package but there is an ama.bst bibtex style. It is not part of TeX Live, but you can find it on CTAN, for instance here. You'all have to install it by yourself, in your texmf-local directory, more precisely in \texmf-local\bibtex\misc\ and run texhash. Then use in your document:

  • I downloaded ama.bst file and run the below mentioned code it works fine. Am using this code to create only a bibliography so its perfect. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{apacite} \begin{document} \nocite{*} \bibliographystyle{ama} \bibliography{example} \end{document} This would not be the exact solution for my question but it works like a charm. – vidhya Dec 2 '14 at 14:09

  • @lukeg: Aren't the explanations in the post clear enough? – Bernard May 17 '16 at 18:27
  • I am running a window OS. I am confused with what you mean by run texhash – lukeg May 17 '16 at 19:31
  • What is your distribution, MiKTeX or TeX Live? – Bernard May 17 '16 at 19:42
