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. Moore P. Antibodies where you want them. Nature. 2003;426:729.
A journal article with 2 authors
1. de Vernal A, Hillaire-Marcel C. Natural variability of Greenland climate, vegetation, and ice volume during the past million years. Science. 2008;320:1622–5.
A journal article with 3 authors
1. Panda S, Hogenesch JB, Kay SA. Circadian rhythms from flies to human. Nature. 2002;417:329–35.
A journal article with 7 or more authors
1. Kang J, Mathew V, Gim J, Kim S, Song J, Im WB, et al. Pyro-synthesis of a high rate nano-Li3V2(PO4)3/C cathode with mixed morphology for advanced Li-ion batteries. Sci Rep. 2014;4:4047.

If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book.
