A journal article with 1 author
Baughman, R.H., 2003. Materials science. Muscles made from metal. Science 300, 268–269.
A journal article with 2 authors
Wright, C.W., Duckett, C.S., 2009. The aryl hydrocarbon nuclear translocator alters CD30-mediated NF-kappaB-dependent transcription. Science 323, 251–255.
A journal article with 3 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".

Government report
Government Accountability Office, 1999. District of Columbia Public Schools: Audit Confirms Reasonableness of Enrollment Count, but Report’s Presentation Is Unclear (No. HEHS-99-66R). 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.

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
Isherwood, C., 2016. Ah, Love, as Complicated as a Russian Novel. New York Times C1.

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Baughman, 2003).
This sentence cites two references (Baughman, 2003; Wright and Duckett, 2009).

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

  • Two authors: (Wright and Duckett, 2009)
  • Three or more authors: (Yasuda et al., 2005)
