Results lists can be sorted in both descending and ascending order. Choose the desired sort order on the search results page using the dropdown menu at the top of the page, below the search box.
This option sorts based on a record’s number of authors.
This option sorts based on bibcode.
This option sorts based on a paper’s number of citations.
This option sorts based on a prestige score, designed to more highly rank papers that are relevant and popular now. It is calculated via an age-normalized combination of reads and citation, and is very similar to the ranking applied to results from Classic’s one-box search.
This option sorts based on a paper’s publication date (month and year).
This option sorts based on a paper’s entry date in the ADS database.
This option is a measure of recent popularity. It sorts on the 90-day read count of a paper: the number of times a paper has been accessed in the ADS or on arXiv in the last 90 days.
This option sorts based on the closeness of the query match. For unfielded searches, commonly searched fields such as author and publication year are more heavily weighted in this sort method.
