A full text designation does not represent
the *full content* of any given journal. The extent of the full
text-"ness" of a database is left to the discretion of the publisher
of the individual journals. Many times, they do not
include classifieds, advertisements, cartoons, charts & graphs,
photographs, and anything else extraneous to the text itself.
Furthermore, because of copyright restrictions, not all the journals
indexed in a full text database will be available full text. You can
immediately identify whether the full text is or is not available
on-line, from the citation.
