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
Ball P (2000) Meet the spin doctors. Nature 404:918–920
A journal article with 2 authors
Kim E, Chan MHW (2004) Probable observation of a supersolid helium phase. Nature 427:225–227
A journal article with 3 authors
Dillingham MS, Spies M, Kowalczykowski SC (2003) RecBCD enzyme is a bipolar DNA helicase. Nature 423:893–897
A journal article with 5 or more authors

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".
