The VAO REST API returns resources in the default order based on its own semantics. To sort or filter a collection before selecting top results, use the sort or filter query parameters. Note that the sort and filter parameters are applied before the limit parameter, regardless of their position in the request. That is, a collection is first filtered or sorted, and then the top results are selected.
