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. S. McEwen, ‘Planetary science. Active volcanism on Io’, Science (New York, N.Y.) 297, (2002), pp. 2220–2221.
A journal article with 2 authors
S. Collins & G. Bell, ‘Phenotypic consequences of 1,000 generations of selection at elevated CO2 in a green alga’, Nature 431, (2004), pp. 566–569.
A journal article with 3 authors
E. Bormashenko, A. Musin & R. Grynyov, ‘Scaling law governing the roughness of the swash edge line’, Scientific reports 4, (2014), pp. 6243.
A journal article with 9 or more authors
W. Cong, B. Liu, S. Liu, M. Sun, H. Liu, Y. Yang, R. Wang & J. Xiao, ‘Implications of the Wnt5a/CaMKII pathway in retinoic acid-induced myogenic tongue abnormalities of developing mice’, Scientific reports 4, (2014), pp. 6082.
