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. Wang N-X. China’s chemists should avoid the Vanity Fair. Nature. 2011;476:253.
A journal article with 2 authors
1. Mota B, Herculano-Houzel S. BRAIN STRUCTURE. Cortical folding scales universally with surface area and thickness, not number of neurons. Science. 2015;349:74–7.
A journal article with 3 authors
1. Corezzi S, Fioretto D, Rolla P. Bond-controlled configurational entropy reduction in chemical vitrification. Nature. 2002;420:653–6.
A journal article with 7 or more authors
1. Bernhardt TG, Wang IN, Struck DK, Young R. A protein antibiotic in the phage Qbeta virion: diversity in lysis targets. Science. 2001;292:2326–9.

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
1. Government Accountability Office. James Webb Space Telescope: Project Meeting Cost and Schedule Commitments but Continues to Use Reserves to Address Challenges. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office; 2016 Dec. Report No.: GAO-17-71.

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
1. Wang N. Computational Studies on Biomolecular Diffusion and Electrostatics [Doctoral dissertation]. [La Jolla, CA]: University of California San Diego; 2015.

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
