What is an abstract?

An abstract is a brief description of the contents and findings of a piece of research, such as an article. It is printed before or after the text of the article in print journals, and is made available with the article in eJournals (in some cases, free of charge).

Some databases offer access to full text resources; others only offer access to abstracts.
