Now, let's look more closely at the record for this journal article. Each field describes something about the article.

Title of the article
Author of the article

What you see is what you get - most indexes do not give you the whole article - just what you need to know to find it, i.e. the citation.

Some indexes, however, provide an abstract field and some even include the full text of the article.
