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:10.5284/1000258. The HTML for this would look like:

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by English Heritage to produce a comprehensive report on the twentieth-century excavations at Stonehenge, as a result of which the Wessex Archaeology Stonehenge Archive was compiled. The archive contains written material (primary, secondary, original, and copied), drawings, photographs, and some finds. These relate to a large number of excavations and non-archaeological interventions undertaken in and around the Stonehenge Triangle between 1901 and 1994. The results of the project were published as Stonehenge in its landscape: twentieth century excavations, Cleal RMJ, Walker KE and Montague R, 1995 English Heritage Archaeological Report 10. The archive, including copies of the databases (on paper and CD), is held at Salisbury Museum, which also holds the majority of the finds and some original archive material.
