A traditional bibliographic database provides bibliographic citations for articles. The bibliographic citation includes the author, title of the article, title of the journal, volume, issue number, date, and pagination. Sometimes an abstract or summary of the article also appears. A full-text bibliographic database provides you with the bibliographic citation and the full-text of articles.
