Is there a “see also” parenthetical citation abbreviation?

I am citing a verse from the Bible and attempting to refer to similar-meaning verses in the same parenthetical citation. An example is as follows:

“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (Proverbs 3:34, James 4:6, 1 Peter 5:5; see also Psalm 138:6, Proverbs 29:23, Matthew 23:12, Luke 1:52).

In this example the first three verses contain the quote exactly while the following four citations are verses with a similar meaning.

I know of some parenthetical citation abbreviations like “e.g.” and “cf.” Does anything similar exist for “see also”?


I’ve seen “vide quoque,” but I haven’t seen it abbreviated as “v.q.,” not like how you see “i.e.” or “e.g.”

Incidentally, it requires a comma after it like other similar Latin expressions.


In the New Testament, The Gospel According to Matthew provides Jesus’ genealogy in chapter 1 (vide quoque, The Gospel According to Luke, chapter 3).
