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:10.5284/1040799. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5284/1040799">doi:10.5284/1040799</a>

Harlow Temple: Bartlett excavation archive

The project comprises the digitisation of the paper archive from Richard Bartlett’s major 1980s excavations at Harlow Roman Temple. The archive comprises context sheets, photos, finds-drawings, plans and specialist reports.

The Roman Temple at Harlow is of national significance, and the archaeology from the various phases of excavation on the site has attracted research interest at an international level. However the 1980s excavations by Richard Bartlett have not been published, in part due to his premature death. The results of the excavations place it in context with other major long-term religious complexes, such as those at Great Chesterford, Essex and Marcham, Oxfordshire.

By making the written archive publically available the site's research potential can be more readily accessed, both for research purposes and for the local archaeological community. The project consolidates over 15 years of work by the Harlow Museum volunteers, in conserving the archive.
