In addition, if the two publications also share the same year, the year is also dropped and only the “unique labels” remain.

Author 2001a, Author 2001b => Author 2001a,b

Author 2001a, Author 2001b => Author 2001a, 2001b

I do not particularly like that, but it is required by a publisher.

Here is a MWE


        title={Great Book},
