Sorting of titles in "Browse By Title"

Postby cleopatra7 » Tue May 18, 2010 6:36 am

I have a journal editor that had a suggestion concerning the way article titles are sorted and displayed when using Browse By Title.
If the titles start with "A" or "The", they would like the titles to be sorted using the next available word in the title with the "A" or "The" appended on the end of the title after a comma, such as "The Good Title" would be "Good Title, The". I'm not sure if this has been an concern with other journals or if there is any notion of changing the way titles are sorted within the system similar to this, but I told them I would look into this for them and see if anyone else had brought this issue up already. If there is If there is something that can be suggested that I can implement to make this possible or any other insight you can give me on this topic that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
