Most databases contain a mixture of citations that have a link to the complete article (called "full-text") and those that just have the abstract or summary of the article available. There is usually a way to limit your search to full-text only. Look below the search area--you may need to scroll down the page a bit--for the words "full-text" or something similar, and check the box for that. Once you've limited your search to full-text, all the citations that come up in your results should have a link underneath to the complete article. It will say PDF full-text, or HTML full-text.
