To sort your documents in DISCO, in the Sort by dropdown, click one of the sorting options.
Sorting by relevance is the default sort order when any search is run in the search bar. Sorting by relevance sorts results by their degree of responsiveness to a search. It's most commonly applicable to word or phrase searches, but applies to all DISCO searches. Web search engines, such as Google, sort in a similar way when you run a search.
In general, relevance sorting is based on an algorithm that creates a score created using the number of hits for any search term, and weighted according to the relative location of the hits. For example, a document with five hits is more relevant than a document with a single hit. Additionally, a hit in a subject field is accorded slightly more weight than a hit in the body. If the result of the algorithm is a tie, then DISCO will sort the ties according to ID numbers.
