"This issue contains no full text" - why is that?

Modified on Fri, 30 Sep 2022 at 10:03 AM

Occasionally you may encounter a journal with an orange banner on the table of contents indicating that "This issue contains no full text" or "New Full Text unavailable for X months/years from time of publication".

This labeling is designed to mirror the full text availability of that publication that your library can access. Some resources provided by your library may contain journals with an embargo period.  These embargoes provide only index information for newer issues but do not contain full text until weeks, months or years after they were originally published.

Also note the lock icon used on the list of issues to the left: any issue with a lock next to it does not have full text available, but older issues shown without the lock are available.

If the text shown offers to let you explore additional access options, tap the article to be automatically routed to your library's inter-library loan form, link resolver or article request service. If this is not available, you will need to contact your library directly for further assistance.
