This listing of journal articles, doctoral dissertations, several masters' theses, chapters in edited books, and authored books chronicles birth order research from 1976 to the end of 1993. The bibliography in this paper, arranged by publication types, consists of 685 papers published in journals, 326 dissertations and theses, 24 chapters from edited books, and 30 authored books and monographs for a total of 1,065 items. The bibliography continues from where earlier bibliographers, such as Miley and Forer, left off, fulfilling a clear need for an updated birth order bibliography. Multiple sources were consulted, since no single published or online computer source contained the necessary amount or scope of entries. Psychological Abstracts and Sociological Abstracts (both printed and online versions), Medline (online) and Dissertation Abstracts International (online) were among the sources searched, using the term "birth order" to search printed and online versions. Some items of all forms were identified through references appearing in other books and papers. At the end of the publication, the 1,011 published studies, theses, and dissertations are indexed under at least one of 122 main topic headings (e.g., achievement, career/work, cross cultural intelligence, parent-child interactions, personality), with about 40% of the entries indexed under more than one term.
