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:10.5284/1000327. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="">doi:10.5284/1000327</a>

Two non-standard pillboxes with connecting underground passage. The pillbox facing N has two or three N-facing embrasures and one S-facing. The smaller pillbox has two N-facing embrasures, and one E-facing and one S-facing. Access into the pillboxes requires a ladder. The internal walls appear to be brick-faced. There are slabs over the N-facing embrasures to stop soil ingress and for camouflage. Situated on a valley side to control N-S movement on the Holmfirth Road below. with PLAN drawn on form.
