The search results in a database are references, which
Most databases include only the reference information while some also include the full-text (the document itself, usually in a HTML or PDF format). A search usually covers the reference information, which is why you can use the information of relevant search results/references in other searches.
A reference includes the bibliographic data of the source:
If the article is not available as a full-text, you need to locate the journal or edited volume in which it appears from the library or other databases.
Some databases include just the reference information (= citation database) whereas some are full-text databases with the articles etc. in HTML or PDF format. You need to find out the availability of references in citation databases: is it available in your library, elsewhere in Finland, online, or internationally. Databases can also include an SFX link (), with which you can quickly check the availability elsewhere.
A full-text link tells you whether the article is available. If there's e.g. a PDF Full Text icon/link below the reference, the full text opens by clickink the icon/link.
