bibliographies: order of precedence

Note the following conventions for the order of bibliographic entries:

  • A single-author entry precedes a multiple-author entry beginning with the same name.
  • An author’s own volume precedes one that he or she has edited or compiled.
  • Corporate authors are alphabetized according to the first keyword in the name (not A, An or The).
  • A list of works by the same author is presented in chronological order.

For information on arranging entries in alphabetical order, see the following article:
