Q

Why does EBSCO only show the abstract? What happened to the rest of the article?

Answer

Sadly, some publishers choose not to allow the full text of their article through databases, just the abstracts.

If you did not use the full text limit in your search, you may pull up an article for which the full text is unavailable. If you do not see full text on the right hand side of the page then you have retrieved one of these articles.

If you run across one you want, we can ask another library to send it to us. It may take1-2 weeks to get an article like this as it may come through the mail.
