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:10.5284/1000027. The HTML for this would look like:

The Palaeolithic Rivers of Southwest Britain (PRoSWeB) project synthesises the archaeological evidence for the Lower and Middle Palaeolithic occupation of south-west Britain (c. 500,000 - 40,000 BP), with a principal focus upon the archaeological and geological potential of the region's Middle Pleistocene fluvial environments. South-west Britain was defined as the region west of the headwaters of the Rivers Frome and Piddle and south-west of the River Avon.
The key results of the project's new field work (in the Exe, Otter and Axe valleys) are:
Project results (including GIS and database resources) have been disseminated to the region's Historic Environment Records (HERs), to support the current and future mitigation of aggregates extraction in the south-west.
Public engagement with the project and the Palaeolithic archaeology and Pleistocene fluvial landscapes of the south-west has been promoted through a series of events (e.g. Palaeolithic Geoarchaeology walks), the project website and other resources.
