I am writing a paper using RevTeX, but the hyperlinks cover not only the journal name, but the volume, number / pages and year, too. I want the hyper link to be on the journal name only. MWE:

\documentclass[reprint,aps,prl,twocolumn, showpacs ,groupedaddress,nobibnotes]{revtex4-1}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{colorlinks=true, citecolor=blue, urlcolor=blue, linkcolor=blue}

\begin{document}
\title{Effect of ...}
\maketitle
bla bla bla bla \cite{Bhattacharya1985}

\bibliographystyle{apsrev4-1}
\bibliography{mine}
\end{document}

Contents of mine.bib:

@article{Bhattacharya1985,
   author = {Bhattacharya, S. and Stokes, J. P. and Robbins, Mark O. and Klemm, R. A.},
   title = {Origin of Broadband Noise in CDW Conductors},
   journal = {Phys. Rev. Lett.},
   volume = {54},
   number = {22},
   pages = {2453-2456},
   DOI = {10.1103/PhysRevLett.54.2453},
   url = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevLett.54.2453},
   year = {1985},
   type = {Journal Article}
}

    I would not change the item(s) included in the hypertarget: If you were to change it to just the journal field, an incorrect umpression might arise that the link is the journal itself. By also including the volume number, the starting page, and the year in the hypertarget, it's immediately clear to any reader that the link will be to a specific article. Incidentally, it's not the document class (revtex4-1) but the bibliography style that determines all formatting aspects of the bibliographic entries. – Mico Nov 1 '15 at 17:09
  • I need to comply with the journal style, though. – student1 Nov 1 '15 at 17:47
  • Are you saying that the journal (which one, by the way?) requires you to use the style apsrev4-1 even though it doesn't meet all formatting requirements? – Mico Nov 1 '15 at 18:11
  • It is Applied Physics Letters. It requires RevTeX 4.1. But I found all recently published papers to have the hyperlink covering the journal name only, not the whole citation. – student1 Nov 1 '15 at 18:18

    As I noted in the initial comment, it's not the document class but the bibliography style that determines all formatting aspects of the bib entries. What alternatives to apsrev4-1 do other authors use? Can you contact the journal's editorial office and ask for their recommendation for a bibliography style that actually delivers the required formatting? – Mico Nov 1 '15 at 18:22
