Suppose that a bibliography contains two entries by the same author, published in the same year (and for the sake of simplicity, with no coauthors). Which order should they be listed in? At least three possibilities come to mind, and as this link shows at least two are considered in practice:
(Alphabetical) In alphabetical order, depending on the titles of the papers.
(Historical) In order of appearence, taking into account months and days of publication.
(Logical) In the order which makes the most logical sense, so that if paper B uses results from paper A then A appears before B.
Which of these is the most widely accepted / the most formally correct?
One instance where this question often comes up for me in practice is when writting a CV. Is there a difference between a publication list of a single person and a bibliography that happens to include two or more papers by the same author?
