createlinkdoi1The time has come for people to include DOIs in references. I would propose including them at the end of the citation and making THOSE the dynamic link in the PDF and HTML versions of online articles.

I have come to accept that I have “missed the boat” on enjoying reading the literature on the shitter in a nice, glossy journal. It’s sad, I think, to be confined to reading journal articles on my computer, which isn’t nearly as mobile or as soft on the eyes as a print journal, but when I invent the color Kindle – I promise you, I shall enjoy delightful reading while taking the most sacrosanct of bodily motions.

Until then, I besheach you to please require hyperlinked DOIs in ALL PDF files in your fine publications. If not for me, then for the fucking children.

Kind Regards,
The 21st century
