I'm counting on the fact that somebody must have done this and has a style file for biblatex-AMA (American Medical Association). Otherwise how do I make the list of references look like this:

Heibel AK, Vergeldt FJ, van As H, Kapteijn F, Moulijn J, Boger T. Gas and liquid distribution in the monolith film flow reactor. AIChE Journal. 2003;49:3007-3017.

  • Could you post a minimal example of what you obtain now and give some details of how it should be corrected? B.t.w., I suppose you mean biblatex-APA.

  • A google search reveals no biblatex-ama style and from what you have posted it is not really easy to make out what it would look like, but it looks quite close to any of the standard styles with the in macro chucked away, terseints option, and some weird stuff going on in the volume/pages department.

  • @Bernard No, I mean the AMA style (American Medical Association). biblatex-ama does not exist on CTAN but I thought somebody must have done it at some point as a personal style file (and would like to share).

  • I see. The simplest (?) would be to start from an existing style file close to what you want and patch with a package such as xpatch, which is done for that.

    @moewe I managed to create the style. I started from the standard authoryear and patched some commands.

Here's a fix. I tested it only on articles and books:

\usepackage[backend=biber, style=authoryear, bibstyle=authortitle, natbib=true, maxcitenames=2, maxbibnames=99, isbn=false, url=false, firstinits=true, uniquename=false, uniquelist=false, terseinits]{biblatex}



% Normal title font (remove italic)

% Year after title

% Print only the year

% Remove "and" from list of authors

enter image description here

  • Your way to display the year after the title seems rather crude to me, why not use bibstyle=authoritle instead?

  • @moewe authortitle makes the year appear after volume number. It should be before... I'll try to patch it.

  • I see, have a look at journal+issuetitle as defined in standard.bbx (line 744 in my version) and swap \usebibmacro{volume+number+eid} and \usebibmacro{issue+date} (changing punctuation between them accoding to your taste) - for that to work you should then get rid of the \renewbibmacro*{date}{} line (we want to see the date after all).

  • @moewe I made an update.

  • While we're at it, I would prefer \renewcommand*{\finalnamedelim}{\multinamedelim} over \renewcommand*{\finalnamedelim}{, }. You need to be careful with redefining issue+date as you did because you might run into troubles with extradate disambiguation.
