Several Studies

When an author or authors have published a number of articles with the same publication date, assign suffixes a, b, c, d, and so on, to differentiate them. Make sure to repeat the year.

(Derryberry & Reed, 2005a, 2005b, in press-a; Rothbart, 2003a, 2003b)

In the reference list you should see three entries for Derryberry and Reed, and two for Rothbart. Items in the reference list will be ordered alphabetically according to title of the article, chapter, or complete work.

This is how four undated articles written by O’Conner would look.

(O’Conner, n.d.-a, n.d.-b, n.d.-c, n.d.-d)

And, this is how four articles written by the same authors would look that are in press, i.e., they have recently been written but are not quite ready for publication.

(Wolf & Chiu, in press-a, in press-b, in press-c, in press-d)
