When searching the databases, such as Academic Search Complete, you can limit your search to full-text articles so you will only find articles that also include the full-text.
Click the box next to full-text in the database search screen. Once you have limited your search to full-text, your results will include a link to the full article. Underneath the citation for the article it will have a link to the HTML Full Text, PDF Full Text, or both. Click on one of these links to retrieve the full article.
You can save the article, print it, or download it to Google drive.
The .pdf is a scanned image of the print article as it appeared in the journal. The HTML option is a hand-typed transcription of the original article.
