If you make a small change to the script, yes. Around line 447, you need 
to insert this line:

  @keys = sort {uc($docs_db{$a}) cmp uc($docs_db{$b})} (keys %answer);

and remove these lines:

   if( defined($query->param('sort')) && $query->param('sort') eq 'title' ) {
    @keys = sort {uc($titles_db{$a}) cmp uc($titles_db{$b})} (keys %answer);
  } else {
    @keys = sort {$answer{$b} <=> $answer{$a}} (keys %answer);

Alternatively you could sort by title (your titles then need issue numbers, but 
that might be a good idea anyway). Just set a hidden field:
<input type="hidden" name="sort" value="title">
