So I have this problem, I want to cite two or more references in one sentence like this:

(Author, year; Author, year)

I don't know how to do this, I tried using something like this but it's obviously wrong:

\cite{blabla; blabla}

Any idea?


you can use multiple citations in the same sentence using: \cite{reference1,reference2,...,referenceN}

Make sure to use \usepackage{cite}

    +1 for suggesting using a citation management package. The cite citation management package is suitable for numeric-styel citation call-outs. To generate authoryear-style citation call-outs, it's better to employ the natbib citation management package, to load it with the option authoryear, and to use a bibliography style that's capable of generating authoryear-style citation call-outs. I suggest you use the plainnat style until you get the hang of things.
