Sort Results By: This field allows you to sort your results by choosing an option from the drop-down box. By default all searches sort alphabetically by title. You can also choose to sort by author (which will list all results sorted under an author name), by date (which will list all works sorted under publication year), or by hits (which shows all hits in the full text line by line. This sort is most useful for performing text analysis.) Note that you must search the full text to sort by hits.
