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>

The Iron Age in the Irish Sea Province: papers given at a CBA conference held at Cardiff, January 3 to 5, 1972

Charles Thomas (editor)

CBA Research Report No 9 (1972)


Title page of report 9

Papers given at a CBA conference held at Cardiff, January 3-5, 1969, are introduced by Joseph Raftery, who outlines the problems needing research (pp 1-10). In Ireland the chief priority is to find habitations and burials to provide a context for the isolated metalwork finds. There is so far no fixed chronological point, but a rough sequence appears thus: c 200 BC a transitional period, still LBA in essentials; then native production of La Tène style bronzes to c AD 0; then a romanising period of unknown length. For Wales, with its apparently non-native metalwork, the submission is that EIA evidence is even more tenuous. Welsh-Irish contacts were intermittent and small-scale, and the Irish Sea traffic was north-south rather than west-east.
