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.

doi:10.5284/1000332

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:

http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000332

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="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1000332">doi:10.5284/1000332</a>
Sample Citation for this DOI

Roman Alcester: Southern Extramural Area. 1964-1966 Excavations. Part 1: Stratigraphy and Structures

Edited by Christine Mahany

CBA Research Report No 96 (1994)

ISBN 1 872414 41 9


Abstract

Title page of report 96

The 1964-6 excavations at the Roman small town of Alcester, Warwickshire, were directed by Christine Mahany for the Ministry of Public Buildings and Works. The work was concentrated on the southern extramural area at Birch Abbey, where a housing estate was due to be constructed, and there were also two investigations of the town defences (sites K and M) and one excavation (site L) in the northern extramural area.

The results are reported in two parts. Part 1, this volume, describes the background to the excavations, and the stratigraphy and structures found on the sites. It also contains a discussion of the structures in their Roman context, and includes a review of work in the town up to December 1989. Part 2 contains details of the pottery and other finds, and a synthetic discussion of both the finds and the function of the site.
