Google Scholar Adds Recent Articles Sort Option

The Google Blog announced that Google Scholar has added the ability to sort the results by most recent articles. The Google blog explains that this is just not a normal date sort filter, the sort takes into account "prominence of the author's and journal's previous papers, how many citations it already has, when it was written and so on."
