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:10.5284/1018054. The HTML for this would look like:

The Royal Archaeological Institute (RAI) is a leading national archaeology society and since 1844 we have annually published the Archaeological Journal. The journal contains papers on the Institute's interests, which span all aspects of the archaeological, architectural and landscape history of the British Isles. It presents the results of archaeological and architectural survey and fieldwork on sites and monuments of all periods as well as syntheses and overviews of such work in the British Isles.
For several years, the RAI has been running a project to digitally scan and make available back issues of the Archaeological Journal. Volumes 1-120, the first 120 years of our journal, are now available to view.
The next stage of our project is to scan journals 121-160 and make these available. Our most recent journals (since 2004) are available through our website for subscribing members and libraries, and on a pay-per-view basis on ArchLib.
The digital articles available here, and any copyright images within them, remain the copyright of their authors and the RAI. They may be downloaded for research and teaching purposes but must not be resold or made available on any other website or on any other medium with or without charge, unless with the prior written consent of the Institute and the relevant copyright holders.
