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.

It is intended that this will be deposited with the Archaeology Data Service in late 2009 and will retain the same format as ASKED. We would greatly value your feedback on any areas of the pilot database, but particularly in response to the following questions:
