Sort entity lists

Use the ?sort parameter to specify the property you want your list sorted by. You can sort by these properties, where they exist:

  • display_name

  • cited_by_count

  • works_count

  • publication_date

  • relevance_score (only exists if there's a search filter active)

By default, sort direction is ascending. You can reverse this by appending :desc to the sort key like works_count:desc. You can sort by multiple properties by providing multiple sort keys, separated by commas. Examples:

You can sort by relevance_score when searching:

An error is thrown if attempting to sort by relevance_score without a search query.
