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:10.5284/1000320. The HTML for this would look like:
Society for Medieval Archaeology (2007) Medieval Archaeology [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] (doi:10.5284/1000320)
In celebration of the Society for Medieval Archaeology's 50th anniversary the first fifty volumes of Medieval Archaeology have been made available in digital form.
The project comprises two parts; the digitised articles have been uploaded without the corresponding plates and copyrighted images, the images are to be uploaded separately in 2008. This arrangement is to ensure that organisations and individuals are alerted to the reproduction of their images and have given their permission for them to appear on the website.
The papers available here in digital form, and any copyright images within them, remain the copyright of their authors, the Society for Medieval Archaeology and any other copyright holder. They may be downloaded for research and teaching purposes but must not be resold or made available on any other website or on any other medium with or without charge, unless with the prior written consent of the Society and the relevant copyright holders.
This project was funded by the Society for Medieval Archaeology, undertaken by Eleanor Standley and supervised by Dr Christopher Gerrard at Durham University.
