Simbad can sort references

Posted by CDS admin on 30 September 2013 09:35 CEST

We are pleased to announce you a new feature to sort bibliographical references attached to an object in Simbad web pages.

If you choose to "display" "reference summary", (in section References in a Simbad object) new buttons are now available to sort references depending on where the object is cited (by default references are sorted by Year and Journal as before) :
- At least once in title, keywords, or abstract
- in a table row
- sort by Date (year and journal)
Inside each group, references are sorted by date.
