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
A. Maxmen, ‘Grassroots initiatives’, Nature 466, (2010), pp. S20.
A journal article with 2 authors
T. Tsubouchi & G. S. Roeder, ‘A synaptonemal complex protein promotes homology-independent centromere coupling’, Science (New York, N.Y.) 308, (2005), pp. 870–873.
A journal article with 3 authors
K. Schroder, R. Zhou & J. Tschopp, ‘The NLRP3 inflammasome: a sensor for metabolic danger?’, Science (New York, N.Y.) 327, (2010), pp. 296–300.
A journal article with 9 or more authors
R. Jørgensen, A. R. Merrill, S. P. Yates, V. E. Marquez, A. L. Schwan, T. Boesen & G. R. Andersen, ‘Exotoxin A-eEF2 complex structure indicates ADP ribosylation by ribosome mimicry’, Nature 436, (2005), pp. 979–984.
