APA – Citing Sources

Using multiple sources in one reference

If you refer to several works at the same time, they are stated in alphabetical order by the author and then in chronological order. Semicolons are used between each reference. The order is then the same as in the reference list and it is easy for the reader to find them. 

  • Man's eternal dream of conquering space is manifested in many different ways (Eco, 2005; Johansson, 2006; Thulin, 2000, 2004)
  • Meurling talks about gender roles and ideals of beauty (1999, 2003)
