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
Joiner S (2000) OPTICS: The Internet of Tomorrow. Science 290:1907–1908
A journal article with 2 authors
Ceci S, Williams WM (2009) Darwin 200: Should scientists study race and IQ? YES: The scientific truth must be pursued. Nature 457:788–789
A journal article with 3 authors
Quattrociocchi W, Caldarelli G, Scala A (2014) Opinion dynamics on interacting networks: media competition and social influence. Sci Rep 4:4938
A journal article with 5 or more authors

Books and book chapters

Here are examples of references for authored and edited books as well as 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 Journal of Industrial Engineering International.

Blog post

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 (1993) Pipeline Safety: Use of Instrumented Technology to Inspect Pipelines. U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
Rutherford BA (2017) Beneficial Tensile Mean Strain Effects on the Fatigue Behavior of Superelastic NiTi. Doctoral dissertation, Mississippi State University

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
Wagner J (2016) Cespedes Wanted to Stay. Mets Wanted Him to Stay. Done Deal. New York Times B9

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites one reference (Joiner 2000).
This sentence cites two references (Joiner 2000; Ceci and Williams 2009).

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:

  • Two authors: (Ceci and Williams 2009)
  • Three or more authors: (May et al. 2000)
