A multi-author citation allows author to include numerous citations within one citation e.g., (Green, 2010; Roy, 2006; Smith & Huang, 2001). Use a semicolon between the citations, and the listing of the authors must be in alphabetical order by the first listed author's last name (American Psychological Association, 2010, p. 178). Each work should be referenced separately in the references.
