Resource identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers

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.

Citing this DOI

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:10.5284/1000332. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="">doi:10.5284/1000332</a>

Title page of report 16

Reports excavations at Torberry Hillfort (Sussex) and two small scatters of pits at Chalton (Hampshire). The first defensive phase at Torberry (possibly preceded by occupation with early furrowed bowls) was a cross-rampart (possibly of Hollingbury type) and ditch. Later the hill was completely enclosed (5th-4th centuries BC), with successive modifications thereafter until slighting and abandonment c 100 BC. Pottery from this site and the two Chalton farmstead pit sites is illustrated, discussed and tentatively dated from 6th century BC to the Roman conquest.
