Two or more works cited at one point in the text

According to the style guide we have to use, "if two or more works by different authors or authoring bodies are cited at one point in the text, use a semicolon to separate them:

(Larsen 2000; Malinowski 1999)

In some citation systems, authors’ names are presented in the text in chronological order (by date of publication); in others they are presented alphabetically. An alphabetical presentation is recommended by this manual." (Snooks & Co. 2002, Style manual for authors, editors and printers, 6th edn, John Wiley & Sons, Milton, Qld., p.193)

Is there a way to do this I’ve overlooked?

I just did a quick check and it seems that the citation style “American Psychological Association 6th edition” is doing exactly what you want. Authors will be separated by a semicolon and sorted alphabetically.

Thanks @andreas, the style I have installed in Paperpile has the requirement I’m after, it just Paperpile isn’t applying it to my document :confused:

I have sent you a modified CSL file via our in-app messaging system that should do the trick. You need to upload it to Paperpile via: Settings -> Citation Styles -> Custom Styles. You will then see it as “Harvard - The University of Melbourne (authors sorted)”.

I will get in contact with the CSL repository guys and check with them what is going wrong here.
