Google Scholar has search by date option – a good thing

Woohoo.  Just discovered a cool (I think new) thing.  Was looking for a link to a new publication of mine.  And I searched Google Scholar

That gets my publications but they are sorted by citation number which alas does not pull up new publications.  So I went to click on the “Since 2012” button I usually click on

And I noticed something I have not noticed before (and that I think must be pretty new):

Woohoo – a full sort by date option.  And so I clicked it and indeed it did work.

This will make Google Scholar much more useful for certain purposes.  This – along with other new features such as the Google Scholar “Updates” system is giving me hope that Google will continue to expand the tools/features of Google Scholar.
