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

Excavations in 1981 and 1986 revealed massive Roman foundations in the waterfront area of the south-west quarter of the City of London, and also shed light on earlier observations made during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Together these have provided the evidence for at least two periods of major public works within the south-west quarter of the late Roman walled town.
This building programme appears to have been the last flourishing of the so-called 'British Empire'. Parallels in military architecture suggest that military engineers, if not labour, had been diverted to the task from the Saxon Shore forts. It is unlikely that the complex was purely military itself, being situated upstream of the bridge and being poorly positioned to defend London, but the monumental size of the construction, and the elaborate nature of its preparation, suggest that it was intended to form an impressive monument within the urban landscape, dominating the riverfront.
