Q. If I have 3 articles have the same title, how do I cite them in APA? Do I use letters, a,b,c?


When three articles have the same title:

  • If the authors are different, put them in order by author's last name.
  • If they have the same author, use the publication dates to put them in order. 
  • If multiple articles have the same author and date, use the letters a, b, c after the publication date  (2019a).

Visit the APA Help page for examples. For further questions contact your campus librarians.
