Sort search results

Learn how to sort search results by author, date of publication or title and more.

Once search results have been displayed, it is possible to sort them by author, date of publication or title.

You can do this by clicking the Sort Results link in the top menu bar.

You can sort the results by author, title, the collection the result is from, the publication date, relevance of the result to your search and whether full-text is available.

You can also select the order in which you want the sorted results to display – ascending or descending:

Specify the number of results to sort. If the number specified is more than the number currently retrieved for the search, NRE/VDX will retrieve more results before the sorted results are displayed. Therefore, there may be a delay in displaying the sorted results.

The search results will be sorted by the option chosen.
