Resource identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers

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.

Citing this DOI

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:10.5284/1000185. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="">doi:10.5284/1000185</a>

The Beaghmore Walkabout - Clive Ruggles
This small walkabout (38 images) starts from a position to the south-west of the monument and proceeds generally in a north-easterly direction.

The Avebury Walkabout - Clive Ruggles
This walkabout is much larger (259 images) and gives the user much more flexibility of movement. There is a choice of three starting points:
Option 1 starts at the Sanctuary, and the viewer has to move along the entire course of the Kennet Avenue, and then along the extant part, in order to reach the main monument.
Option 2 starts at the southern end of the extant part of the Kennet Avenue, so that the viewer moves in along the avenue in order to reach the main monument.
Option 3 is the simplest, starting at the Devil's Chair and letting the viewer move about around and within the henge and stone circles.
