Wondering if an article is full text? Follow these tips when searching databases:
Look for “PDF full text” or “HTML full text.” PDF full text means that a PDF file, a scan of how the article originally appeared in print, is available to open, download, or save. HTML full text means that the article’s text is available but only in the format of a web page.
Use the “Full Text Finder” link within databases. This is a tool that utilizes EBSCO’s Full Text Publications Finder, which will help you determine if the article is full text in another subscription database or open access online.
If the article is NOT available as full text, look for the “Request this item through interlibrary loan” link. This will transfer the article’s citation information into a request form. Complete the form with your contact information and submit.
