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. Rastan S. Mary F. Lyon (1925-2014). Nature. 2015;518:36.
A journal article with 2 authors
1. Piperno DR, Sues H-D. Paleontology. Dinosaurs dined on grass. Science. 2005;310:1126–8.
A journal article with 3 authors
1. Ohmoto H, Watanabe Y, Kumazawa K. Evidence from massive siderite beds for a CO2-rich atmosphere before approximately 1.8 billion years ago. Nature. 2004;429:395–9.
A journal article with 7 or more authors
1. Gostissa M, Yan CT, Bianco JM, Cogné M, Pinaud E, Alt FW. Long-range oncogenic activation of Igh-c-myc translocations by the Igh 3’ regulatory region. Nature. 2009;462:803–7.

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
1. Government Accountability Office. Intelligence Programs: New RC-135 Aircraft Engines Can Reduce Cost and Improve Performance. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office; 1992 Aug. Report No.: NSIAD-92-305.
