Find Help Citing Your Sources
American Mathematical Society
AMS Style refers to the citation format established by the American Mathematical Society. With AMS, the # sign in brackets represents the order that the citation is mentioned in the text of the paper. For example,  would indicate that this is the fifth citation found in the text.
Citing the sources you use to write a paper is not just a matter of getting a good grade. It's also about giving other researchers credit for their ideas and allowing your readers to see what sources you have engaged with. Most importantly, failing to cite your sources properly violates the ethics of scholarship and St. Norbert's commitment to academic integrity. For more details on what constitutes plagiarism, see St. Norbert College's policies on Academic Dishonesty.
