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.
The updated Crossref DOI Display guidelines recommend that DOIs should be displayed in the following format:
English Heritage (2008) Hayton Roman Pottery Database [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] https://doi.org/10.5284/1000066
This project originated as an English Heritage funded project to develop an easy way of depositing the digital archive generated by the cataloguing of pottery. Another aspect of the project was to try to attempt to address the long standing tension inherent in the dissemination and publication of pottery within the context of archaeological reports, not only to pottery specialists but the audiences beyond.
It is hoped that this method will be used by others so that this becomes a useful resource for all.
