Hyperlinked research

To betray my utter geekiness (as if I haven’t done that already), I just got very excited when I opened this CGD working paper by Michael Clemens and saw hyperlinks on all the references. Imagine that! To my disappointment the links in the text only lead to the full citation in the bibliography. But really, in this day and age, why on earth don’t all academic papers come with embedded links to online versions of their sources?

I for one completely agree with that last sentence. : )

Perhaps because neither Endnote nor Refworks yet has this as a standard option?
