Citing Special Sources: Citing Special Sources

How to use this guide

This guide is intended to cover how to cite commonly used but odd references used in the health sciences. References like drug inserts or conference proceedings are commonplace, but hard to cite properly. Standard citation manuals for APA and AMA may address these references, but not always explicitly.

Use the tabs on the left for guidance on how to cite that tricky citation you have in your paper or manuscript. Citation instructions and examples are listed alphabetically by category, so emails are under P for Personal Correspondence and Micromedex is under D for Drug Databases.
