Q. How do I do APA citations for multiple entries with the same author and date?

For example, Whole Foods (2019) website has information about the company, work force, organic foods, etc. In text citation would be (Whole Foods, 2019) for each. Would I put an "a" for company info and a "b" for work force information after the date? For example, Whole Foods, 2019a or Whole Foods, 2019b.


Yes, use the lower case a, b, c with the year in both the in-text citation and on the References page.

Decide which entry gets the a, b, c, and so on by alphabetizing the titles of the sources.

Example-References page:

Whole Foods. (2019a). Careers. Retrieved from website address.

Whole Foods. (2019b). Leadership team. Retrieved from website address.

Whole Foods. (2019c). Organic Foods. Retrieved from website address.

In-text citation:

Ms. Jones says the company "is concentrating on organic foods by customer demand" (Whole Foods, 2019c, para. 3).
