Citing RIBo URLs online and in print

This page describes how to refer to RIBo web pages online or in print, using short, stable URLs. | Projects | Single texts

Whether you are linking to RIBo from a web page or another online resource, or citing RIBo resources in print, you should NOT cite the server directly. Instead, use the hostname Then append the relevant part of the URL as given in the examples, which are designed to be permanent. The hostname will always redirect to the current Oracc server, wherever it is hosted.


Decide whether you want to link to the home page of a project (which is likely to include a text-based description of its aims and scope), or directly to the corpus outline. Always the lower-case project abbreviation, and remember to include the final /. For instance:

Project home page
Corpus home page

Some projects have subprojects:

Subproject home page
Subproject corpus home page


There are various different ways of linking to single texts in a corpus. For instance:

Single texts

To link directly to a single text in a project, for instance to embed it in another web page, use the the text's ID (i.e., P-, Q- or X-number). For example:
