Any database that says "Abstracts" in the description does not usually include full-text. These databases let you know that an article exists and allow you to read the abstract (a summary of the article), but you'll have to look elsewhere to read the full article. 

If "LincIT" appears alongside or under the abstract, you can click the link to check for the article in another database. If that's not successful, you can make a request for the articles through Interlibrary Loan. The process can take a few days, so make sure to start your research early. 

If you have questions about any of this, please Ask A Librarian!
