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.

Wickware P (2000) US minorities stake their claim in science and engineering. Nature 405:717–718
A journal article with 2 authors
Jung H, Karato S (2001) Water-induced fabric transitions in olivine. Science 293:1460–1463
