Why am I finding abstracts instead of full-text articles?
Last Updated: Mar 31, 2023     Views: 244

If you are searching and only finding abstracts, the full-text limiter for the database has likely been unchecked. Look for a box on either the search or results page that reads Full Text. Checking this box will limit your search results to only include articles available in full text.

If you are working on a long-term project or your dissertation research and need to complete comprehensive research, then you should deselect the full-text limiter.

If an article you need is unavailable in full text through any of our databases, you can request it using the Request a Document form.
