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:10.5284/1040802. The HTML for this would look like:
Cotswold Archaeology (2016) Former Ford Factory, Wide Lane, Swaythling, Southampton. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-268163) [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] (doi:10.5284/1040802)
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in August and September 2016 at part of the Former Ford Factory, Wide Lane, Southampton.
The evaluation uncovered the natural horizon across the site as brickearth deposits overlying river gravels. The brickearth had survived in most areas, apart from where modern development had caused localised truncation. The absence of buried topsoil/subsoil overlying the brickearth suggests that it was probably truncated in the 1930s during the initial development of the site. However, the levels of the surviving brickearth deposits correspond with the slope of the surrounding topography (to the south-east) and suggest that this disturbance was minimal.
During the evaluation, the demolished remains of two World War II air raid shelters were uncovered along the southern and western boundaries of the site. No further archaeological remains or deposits were uncovered.
