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.

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 (1981) Federal Agencies’ Maintenance of Computer Programs: Expensive and Undermanaged. U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Dermitzakis 2011).
This sentence cites two references (Dermitzakis 2011; Kiberstis and Marshall 2011).

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

  • Two authors: (Kiberstis and Marshall 2011)
