When can I use abbreviations in the title while using the AMA style?
Last Updated: Jan 15, 2019
Avoid the use of abbreviations in the title and subtitle, unless space constraints require an exception or if the title includes the name of a group that is more popular by an acronym. In both cases the abbreviation has to be expanded in the abstract and at the first appearance in the text.
