Chronological Order of References

Postby ambermoon » Thu Jul 11, 2013 12:12 am

Hi all!

Just finishing a report, and looking at my bibliography, it is currently alphabetical and I am using the natbib package, and it is set up like this at the end of my document:
  1. \bibliographystyle{apa}
  2. \bibliography{bib}

However! If I go look at my bibliography, I have a few entries from an author, but they are not chronological. This is due to it going alphabetical relative to the second author automatically, then chronological. I wanted to know if it was possible to have it chronological with respect to only the first author?

Example - they are not chronological with respect to the first author, Armitage. (this is how it comes out in the PDF)
Armitage, J. (2013). Personal Communication.

Armitage, J. J. (2008). Modelling the Controls on Melt Generation During Continental Extension and Breakup. PhD thesis, University of Southampton.

Armitage, J. J., Collier, J. S., and Minshull, T. A. (2010). The importance of rift history for volcanic margin formation. Nature, 465(7300):913{917.

Armitage, J. J., Collier, J. S., Minshull, T. A., and Henstock, T. J. (2011). Thin oceanic crust and
ood basalts: India-Seychelles breakup. Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems, 12.

Armitage, J. J., Henstock, T. J., Minshull, T. A., and Hopper, J. R. (2008). Modelling the composition of melts formed during continental breakup of the Southeast Greenland margin. Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 269(1-2):248{258.

Armitage, J. J., Henstock, T. J., Minshull, T. A., and Hopper, J. R. (2009). Lithospheric controls on melt production during continental breakup at slow rates of extension: Application to the North Atlantic. Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems, 10.

If not, I've set up my BibTeX file in the order I want, so if there is a way to output how it is ordered in my bibtex file would also solve my problem (I have been slightly ocd about this!).

Its probably something trivial, but I've asked around at uni and looked to the internet as much as I could and couldn't figure it out, all help is much appreciated!

I hope to hear of an answer to this. Did you ever figure it out? I'm having the same problem, and I'm not seeing an answer anywhere.
