\burlalt{www.goooooggggggle.comssss}{\textbf{32}, 396, (1964)}

From hyperref's README:

Only few drivers support automatically wrapped/broken links, e.g. pdftex, dvipdfm, hypertex. Other drivers lack this feature, e.g. dvips, dvipsone.

Workarounds:

• For long section or caption titles in the table of contents or list of figures/tables option linktocpage can be used. Then the page number will be a link, and the overlong section title is not forced into an one line link with overvull \hbox warning.

• \urls are caught by package breakurl.

• The option breaklinks is intended for internal use. But it can be used to force link wrapping, e.g. when printing a document. However, when such a document is converted to PDF and viewed with a PDF viewer, the active link area will be misplaced. Another limitation: some penalties are "optimized" by TeX, thus there are missing break points, especially within \url. (See thread hyperref.sty, breaklinks and url.sty 3.2" in comp.text.tex 2005-09).

• You may want to state explicitly what the OP should do to address his/her issue: Don't use the breaklinks option, load the breakurl package instead. Would you agree? – Mico May 21 '14 at 6:53
• @Mico: Or pdflatex or ... and I am back, where I have started with a long list of possibilities. – Heiko Oberdiek May 21 '14 at 6:59
• So, this is not possible without using pdflatex, isn't it?? Is it possible to use breakurl in dvi->ps and ps->pdf option – user52124 May 21 '14 at 9:37
• @user52124: First sentence of breakurl's README: "The breakurl is an extension to hyperref package that allows line-breakable \url-like links when compiling via latex + dvips + ps2pdf"." – Heiko Oberdiek May 21 '14 at 10:30
• Is it possible to use \textbf inside \burlalt tag – user52124 May 22 '14 at 9:26
