The connection between various entities that are part of a bibliography 
entry such as between the article and the journal are the same like the 
ones between  a product and its manufacturer.
I would not worry about that.
Again I would go very similar like bibtex.
Now, defining an entity  http://schema.org/Journal would define 
necessary properties such as  journal numbers, volumes and so on.
So, may be the markup you look for is:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/ScholarlyArticle">
   <span itemprop="author">Aaron Sloman</span>
   <span itemprop="name">Review of Affective Computing</span>,
   <span itemprop="journal" itemscope 
itemtype="http://www.schema.org/Journal">
        <span itemprop="NAME">AI Magazine</span>
       <span itemprop="number"></span>
       <span itemprop="dateCreated" content="...">1999</span>
    </span>
   <span itemprop="pageStart">127</span>
   <span itemprop="pageEnd">133</span>
....
</div>
