Sorting your results

In the sort pull-down menu you have the following choices for sorting your search results. Note that only 200 records at a time can be sorted, so be sure to narrow your search to under this limit.

No Sort
This option will cause your result set to not be sorted. The order that the data is displayed is the order that the data was added to the databases. Which in most cases will be a reverse chronological listing. Choosing this option will help speed up the time with which you get results back.
 
Date Order - Descending
Result set is sorted by a series of date fields. The date is either the document date or it is the date the document was added to our system. This option will sort them with the newest document first.
 
Date Order - Ascending
Result set is sorted by a series of date fields. The date is either the document date or it is the date the document was added to our system. This option will sort them with the oldest document first.
 
First Author
The result set will be sorted alphabetically by the name of the first author on a paper.
 
Title
The result set will be sorted alphabetically by the title of the document.
 
First Author/Title
The result set is first sorted alphabetically by the last name of the first author, and then sub-sorted alphabetically by document title.
