Ordering Ref Entries

First, order entries alphabetically by their 1st citation element (i.e., author's last name or title of work with no author)

  • Use letter spelling to order numbers, e.g., order "2020" under "T"
  • List single author work before mutli-author work

Then, order ascendingly by publication date (i.e., for entries with the same 1st citation element, order by 2nd element)

  • List no date (n.d.) entries first
  • List from earliest to most recent
  • In-press references are last

Example of ref entry order

Smith, A. (n.d.)...
Smith. A, (2011)....
Smith, A., & Smith, B. (2011)...
Smith, A. (2021)...
Smith, B, (2019)...
