I need to use a specific format for my reference lists for my publications, however, I don't really understand how I can manipulated BibTeX to do what I want. I am trying to get the following format:

X.Y. Author1, A. B. Author2, Journal (with abbreviations), Volume Number (Issue Number), First Page (year).

or for 3+ Authors

X.Y. Author1, A. B. Author2, Journal (with abbreviations), Volume Number (Issue Number), First Page (year).

I tried reading through the documentation but it gets a little complicated and I am pretty new at this...

If anyone can give me some help, that would be great.

Welcome to TeX.sx!. Could you set up a minimal working example (MWE) to help the people here answering your question? The makebst utility may be useful for you. –  Corentin Nov 6 '12 at 15:41
    
With no MWE, this is too localized. –  Joseph Wright Nov 20 '12 at 8:19
