It is bug in the module triggered by the lack of issue information
in some of the article entries. To fix it, best put this in your
preamble for now:

\setuppublicationlayout[article]{%
\insertartauthors{}{ }{\insertthekey{}{ }{}}%
\insertpubyear{(}{). }{\unskip.}%
\insertarttitle{\bgroup }{\egroup. }{}%
\insertjournal{\bgroup \it}{\egroup}
{\insertcrossref{In }{}{}}%
\insertvolume
{\bgroup \it, }
{\egroup\insertissue{\/(}{)}{}\insertpages{, }{.}{.}}
{\insertpages{, pp. }{.}{.}}%
\insertnote{ }{.}{}%
\insertcomment{}{.}{}%
}

I will fix this in the next release.

No, that is not possible. I have a lua-based bibliography converter
planned and once that is in place, this will be possible.

Best wishes,
