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:10.5284/1000184. The HTML for this would look like:
Society of Antiquaries of Scotland (2012) The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland [data-set]. York: Archaeology Data Service [distributor] (doi:10.5284/1000184)
The project to scan the entire run of the Proceedings, Archaeologia Scotica and the Society's out-of-print monographs, was generously funded by Historic Scotland, the ARCHway Project and the Russell Trust and could not have been completed without the active and enthusiastic involvement of the Archaeology Data Service.
