Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers which can be used to consistently and accurately reference digital objects and/or content. The DOIs provide a way for the ADS resources to be cited in a similar fashion to traditional scholarly materials. More information on DOIs at the ADS can be found on our help page.
DOIs should be the last element in a citation irrespective of the format used. The DOI citation should begin with "doi:" in lowercase followed by the DOI with no spaces between the ":" and the DOI.
DOIs can also be cited as a persistent link from another Web page. This is done by appending the DOI Resolver with the DOI. This would look like:
However, if it is possible it is best to hide the URL in the href property of the <a> tag and have the link text be of the form doi:10.5284/1018291. The HTML for this would look like:
Archaeology in Contemporary Europe Project (2013) ACE Portal for Publications and Outputs [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] (doi:10.5284/1018291)
ACE is supported by Culture Programme 2007-2013 of the Directorate General for Education and Culture of the European Commission and the project has been led and coordinated by Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives (INRAP), in Paris, with a further 12 project partners: Culture Lab, Universiteit leiden, AUTh, AMU, ADS, KÖH, INCIPIT (CSIC), RGK, IBC, KINEON, Unité d'archéologie de la ville de Saint-Denis and OE.
The ACE network aims to promote contemporary archaeology at a European wide level, by emphasising its cultural, scientific, and economic dimensions, including its manifold interest for the wider public. With the acceleration of infrastructure and development works throughout the continent in the past decades, contemporary archaeology has become particularly important and challenging. The process of development poses severe threats to archaeological remains, which are by nature fragile and non-renewable, but it can also provide new opportunities for increasing our knowledge about the past and for enhancing sustainable archaeological heritage management for the benefit of all European citizens.
