I'm wondering if it is possible to display the list of publication types on the node/add form in alphabetical order.

I appreciate that sorting by term id in its current form seems to be the most practical - I see under [biblio_type][#options] using devel for example that -1 (String, 14 characters ) Select Type... allows the select list dropdown to appear correctly and I also see from scanning through biblio.module that the id for each type helps with the import and export functions for the bibliographic data.

My problem is that every time I add a new type it ends up at the bottom of the list and results in a non-intuitive initial method of choosing a publication type when creating a new biblio node.

This request has been "on the books" for a while, I'll see what I can do about actually implementing it.

This may be fixed by #682044: Support fields (CCK) in D7 Bibliography Module as it would cause this module to revert to Drupal-delivered code.

it would be great if the dropdown list of publication types on the node/add form could be customised in any order. That means that those publication types that are the most likely to be entered can be on top of the dropdown list.

This is a long standing request which I just haven't got to yet :-(

I'll see what I can do.
