Links to Alternative Full-Text Articles in Full Text Databases
I am interested in learning if any full-text databases (such as
Expanded Academic ASAP, EBSCOHost, etc) currently (or in the future are
planning to) provide either
*alternative access to full-text articles from institutionally
* more importantly links from citation/abstracts for entries
without full text in the database to a second party full-text source.
As many know, Full-Text in not necessarily Complete Text, and a link
to the original source would (in most cases) provide the Complete Text
(as well as access to New Age Features and Functionalities not presently
offered in the secondary full-text databases.
NB: For example of New Age Features and Functionalities, please see
EJI(sm): A Registry of Innovative E-Journal Features,
Functionalities, and Content
