BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Downward, Julian. “Signal transduction. Prelude to an anniversary for the RAS oncogene.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 314.5798 (2006): 433–434.
A journal article with 2 authors
Susiarjo, Martha, and Marisa S. Bartolomei. “Epigenetics. You are what you eat, but what about your DNA?” Science (New York, N.Y.) 345.6198 (2014): 733–734.
A journal article with 3 authors
Ghosh, Shankar, A. K. Sood, and N. Kumar. “Carbon nanotube flow sensors.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 299.5609 (2003): 1042–1044.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Lin, Shih-Kang et al. “Formation of alternating interfacial layers in Au-12Ge/Ni joints.” Scientific reports 4 (2014): 4557.

Books and book chapters

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Angelaki.

Blog post
Davis, Josh. “Nearly 700 Million Cases Of Malaria Have Been Prevented Since 2000.” IFLScience. IFLScience, 17 Sep. 2015. Online. Internet. 30 Oct. 2018. . Available: https://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/nearly-700-million-cases-malaria-have-been-prevented-2000/.

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office. Applicability of Service Contract Act to Service Employees of ADP and High-Technology Companies. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, November 19, 1980.

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
White, Jennis. “Support group for family caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients: A grant proposal.” Doctoral dissertation, Long Beach, CA: California State University, Long Beach, 2014.

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
Brantley, Ben. “Bewildered Rage Over Lives Cut Short.” New York Times, 11 Jun. 2017: C2.
