I have to find three professional, full text journal articles.

While searching EBSCOhost, I found many different things I could use; however, they weren’t full text. How do I find full text articles in EBSCO?

There are a couple of ways to find the full text of an article.  In your search results look for a yellow "Find It" icon"Find It" will take you to a page that provides links to full text holdings of articles that are available in other databases.  If the article is available in full text in the Ebsco database there will be a link to a PDF or HTML full text document.

You can also elect to limit your search to full text before searching any EBSCO database; click on advanced search; scroll down and check Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals; scroll a little farther and click EBSCO Full Text Only and then search.

From the results screen on the left you will see the subject headings, etc. come up and you can narrow your search further.  You may need to recheck full text, but depending on your initial search terms you should have several articles to choose from.  You can always revise your search and modify terms for better results, or use the subject or thesaurus entries from the left hand side of the screen to narrow your results.
