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
1. Moses M. Being human: engineering: worldwide ebb. Nature. 2009;457:660–1.
A journal article with 2 authors
1. Vinson V, Pennisi E. Synthetic biology. The allure of synthetic biology. Introduction. Science. 2011;333:1235.
A journal article with 3 authors
1. Berton O, Hahn C-G, Thase ME. Are we getting closer to valid translational models for major depression? Science. 2012;338:75–9.
A journal article with 7 or more authors
1. Schneider NM, Burger MH, Schaller EL, Brown ME, Johnson RE, Kargel JS, et al. No sodium in the vapour plumes of Enceladus. Nature. 2009;459:1102–4.

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".
