Trying the access the full-text of a journal article? This is a complicated question!! See if any of these explanations fit your situation:
- If you are using one of the EBSCO databases (Fusion, Cinahl, Academic Search), some article citations have a PDF icon. Click on the PDF icon to open the full-text of the article
- If you are using one of the EBSCO databases that has a link that says "Check for full text," click on that link. Much of the time you will be able to get to the full-text of the article. Refer to the handout (see below) for explanations of the various options.
- If you are using the PubMed database, look for the icon for icon that says, "Online Journal Bryan Health." You must be in the abstract display to see these icons. Click on the icon to go to the full-text of the article.
If none of these options take you to the full-text of the article, it sounds like you need to request the article through our Interlibrary Loan service. We will find a library that owns the journal and will request a copy of the article for you. We will email you a PDF of the article. You may submit Interlibrary Loan requests directly through the EBSCO databases (use the Submit Article Request link) or you may go to the Library homepage / Research Services box / Article Requests link.
