An essential part of a scientific article is citation of earlier work. Generally it is only worth looking up the first author the one who contributed the most to the paper or the last author usually the professor in whose lab the work was done and who supervised the science project.
Do not make readers guess: Make sure the paragraph's first sentence gives them a clear idea of what the entire paragraph is about. So, if the first link isn't downloadable, try another.
