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)
The Query form allows you to search the ADS holdings of Medieval Archaeology for a specific volume or volumes for a particular year. In addition, the citations can be searched for a specific author, or keyword.
