Articles for Research: EBSCO HOST
No, you’re not doing anything wrong. Not everything in EBSCO is in full text. To the left side of your search results, you can put a check mark in the box next to ‘Full Text’ to only get results that have the complete article.
That said, I wouldn’t necessarily start with Academic Search Premier for a social work topic. You’ll probably be happier using SocIndex (another EBSCO database) or ProQuest Social Science Journals. And all of our social work-related databases are listed on this libguide.
If you want a specific article that we don’t have in full text, you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. It may take a few days to a week to get it in.
Let me know if I can be of any help in your search.
