Hi Simon

In Harvard UTS style, when referening to two or more works by the same author, published in the same year, distinguish them by adding a, b, c and so on after the year, both in-text and in your reference list. For example (Smith 2009a) and (Smith 2009b). In your reference list, works by the same author, in the same year, are ordered alphabetically by their title.

Hope this helps.
