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:10.5284/1028203. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1028203">doi:10.5284/1028203</a>
Sample Citation for this DOI

English Heritage has a long tradition of producing highly illustrated archaeological monographs about key sites and topics of importance to the understanding of the historic environment in England. Many of the past titles have long been out of print and yet are still of value for reference purposes. As a service to the wider archaeological community, English Heritage is now making these titles available as ebooks (see the English Heritage Publishing catalogue for details) and as PDFs which can be accessed here for free.

The PDFs are, in the main, scans of the original publications and reproduce the pages of those publications. While we have tried to ensure that the pages are legible, file size limitations may mean that some pages are less clear and, in case of doubt, users should consult the original publication. We have included scans of large foldout illustrations, but not the contents of any microfiche that was in the original volumes.
