We discuss the design and implementation of a scheme enabling authors to refer and link to on-line datasets available from astronomical archives. This will provide the readers of electronic papers with direct access to the data discussed therein. The software tools used to create and maintain links from published papers to the datasets make use of Web-Services-based technology. The system has been designed in collaboration with the NASA Astrophysics Data Centers, the American Astronomical Society, and the University of Chicago Press, and will be maintained by the NASA Astrophysics Data System.
