Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

A journal article with 1 author
R. Froese, Fishery reform slips through the net, Nature. 475 (2011) 7.
A journal article with 2 authors
A.A. Khajetoorians, J. Wiebe, Physics. Hitting the limit of magnetic anisotropy, Science. 344 (2014) 976–977.
A journal article with 3 authors
V. Plaks, C.D. Koopman, Z. Werb, Cancer. Circulating tumor cells, Science. 341 (2013) 1186–1188.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
R.D. Bardgett, R.S. Smith, R.S. Shiel, S. Peacock, J.M. Simkin, H. Quirk, P.J. Hobbs, Parasitic plants indirectly regulate below-ground properties in grassland ecosystems, Nature. 439 (2006) 969–972.

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, Laboratory Research: Sales and Use Tax Costs to Build DOE’s Spallation Neutron Source Project, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC, 1999.

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
E.C. Williams, Smart Packaging: A Novel Technique For Localized Drug Delivery For Ovarian Cancer, Doctoral dissertation, University of South Florida, 2012.

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.
