APA 6th Edition 

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.

APA 7th Edition

Use a semi-colon between authors in a multi-author citation; listing of authors must be in alphabetical order (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 263) e.g., (Anderson, 2013; Lee, n.d.-a; Lee, n.d.-b; Roy, 2006; Smart & Weston, 2011). In cases where some authors are more relevant than others to the cited material in the sentence, place that author first, followed by the words “see also” and the other authors in alphabetical order: (Smart & Weston, 2011; see also Anderson, 2013; Lee, n.d.-a; Lee, n.d.-b; Roy, 2006).
