All sorting methods first consider the field presort, if available. Entries with no presort field are assigned presort value “mm”. Next the sortkey field is used.
When sorting by name, the sortname field is used first. If it is not present,
the author field is used,
if that is not present editor is used, and if that is not present translator is
used. All of these fields are affected
by the value of
max.names in .BibOptions()$max.names.
When sorting by title, first the field sorttitle is considered. Similarly, when sorting by year, the field sortyear is first considered.
When sorting by volume, if the field is present it is padded to four digits with leading zeros; otherwise, the string “0000” is used.
When sorting by alphabetic label, the labels that would be generating with the “alphabetic” bibstyle are used. First the shorthand field is considered, then label, then shortauthor, shorteditor, author, editor, and translator. Refer to the BibLaTeX manual Sections 18.104.22.168 and 3.5 and Appendix C.2 for more information.
