    A: The specific answer to this depends on the citation style you are using. However, for the majority of styles, you would handle this situation like so:

    Order the citations of two or more works by different authors within the same parentheses alphabetically in the same order in which they appear in the reference list. Separate the citations with semicolons. For example (in APA):

    Several studies (Miller, 1999; Shafranske & Mahoney, 1998)

    It is important to note, however, that these types of in-text citations should be used sparingly. It is nearly always better to refer to the authors within the sentences of your paper, as this creates a better flow to your work.
