By default, eScholarship sorts content within a series using the following criteria:
- Content is first sorted by publication date, with more recent content appearing toward the top of the page.
- If publication dates are the same for multiple items, the content is then sorted alphabetically by author name (Last, First).
- If author names are the same for multiple items, the content is then sorted alphabetically by title.
Readers viewing the site can customize their sort order by using the "Sort by" menu.
It is not possible to set a preferred sort order for content in eScholarship series, nor is it possible to "pin" content at the top of a series. Rather, we recommend using the series' "About" text, a custom page at the unit level, or a custom text box at the unit level to feature certain content.
