Preferred Citation Format

Some journals may choose to list a preferred citation format for articles to ensure correct citation. Some may use this only for references for which citation problems or questions are likely to arise (eg, manuscripts with group authors). Although this is not used for any articles published in JAMA and the Archives Journals, the format is suggested below. (See also 2.2.1, Bylines and End-of-Text Signatures, Authors' Names, and 2.2.4, Bylines and End-of-Text Signatures, Multiple Authors, Group Authors.)

Preferred Citation Format: Gould PA, Krahn AD; for the Canadian Heart Rhythm Society Working Group on Device Advisors. Complications associated with implantable cardioverter-defibrillator replacement in response to device advisories. JAMA. 2006;295(16):1907-1911.
