Reviews for this release

     
Poorly documented but it DOES work. You just need to be very careful about how you use punctuation in the entries. Authors need to be either Firstname Lastname or Lastname, Firstname. You also separate names with a semi-colon, not a comma (which it uses to separate first and last names). So if you ENTER it in AMA format you get a string of what it thinks is initials (hence the problems).

This is a close approximation of the AMA style. However, it is not correct. The paragraph text needs to be super scripted and the bibliography section is missing options for websites like last updated. It is close to being correct but not. And seeing as this was last updated April 2013 and the last AMA revision was 2012...

The issues with the names are solved with the edit box. Put in each author separately & hit add. Hit OK & authors appear in the field box with commas between last name and initials and an extra space between initials, like was previously stated in the other ratings. This is FYI. It comes out correctly on the Bibliograpy. HOWEVER, neither book author, nor pages show on "Book Section".

Doesn't work at all for journal articles with multiple authors. Cites first author and then a string of capital letters for the first and last names of all the other authors. Don't download; waste of time.

Doesn't handle the authors well, places commas after last names of additional authors (Evans JR, Johnson, RK, ...). Sometimes inverts the last/first name of first author (Jill ER, Johnson, RK, ...). Other stuff looks fine.
