HOW TO CITE A DRUG RECORD WITH EDITOR(S) FROM THE DYNAMED DATABASE

Author, A., & Author, B. (Date of publication). Title of database entry/article in sentence case. Retrieved from Name database.

Formatted Example:

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) Last names of authors, year of publication, and paragraph number or section heading (if there are no page numbers) placed in brackets at the end of the sentence:

(Trow, Shaughnessy, & Oettgen, 2016, "Treatment").

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:

Trow, Shaughnessy, and Oettgen listed aminorex and fenfluramine as "definite risk factors" for pulmonary arterial hypertension (2016, "Epidemiology"). ​​
