APA 6th Edition - Copenhagen Business School: Multiple works by the same author

How to reference with APA

Citing multiple works by same author

References by the same author (or by the same group of authors in the same order) are arranged by year of publication in the Reference list, with the earliest first.

For references with the same author and year, the references are arranged alphabetically by title (ignoring "A" or "The"). Lower case letters (a, b, c) are added immediately after the year within parentheses.
