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
M. S. Turner, ‘History: Aspen physics turns 50’, Nature 486, (2012), pp. 315–317.
A journal article with 2 authors
S. Zhou & A. Bongiorno, ‘Origin of the chemical and kinetic stability of graphene oxide’, Scientific reports 3, (2013), pp. 2484.
A journal article with 3 authors
M. Oxborrow, J. D. Breeze & N. M. Alford, ‘Room-temperature solid-state maser’, Nature 488, (2012), pp. 353–356.
A journal article with 9 or more authors
M. Rottmann, C. McNamara, B. K. S. Yeung, M. C. S. Lee, B. Zou, B. Russell, and others, ‘Spiroindolones, a potent compound class for the treatment of malaria’, Science (New York, N.Y.) 329, (2010), pp. 1175–1180.

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for The Journal of Juristic Papyrology.

Blog post

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, Indian Affairs: Key Actions Needed to Ensure Safety and Health at Indian School Facilities, Washington, DC 16 March 2016.

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
D. Durak, ‘Improving forecasting accuracy of electric switch demand using artificial neural network and aggregate customer clustering techniques’, unpublished Doctoral dissertation Edwardsville, IL 2016.

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.

New York Times article
L. Qiu, ‘On Spectrum of Extremism, Far Left Takes Relatively Little Space’, New York Times,, 15 August 2017, p. A13.

In-text citations
