Peer Reviewed means that an article is scholarly in nature.

Peer reviewed articles are evaluated by experts in the subject area before they are published.

Peer reviewed journal articles tend to be rather long, often over twenty pages.  They also use quite a bit of jargon, or language associated with a professional field.  Many peer reviewed articles are empirical, meaning that they discuss original research.

Full Text means the entire article is available in the database you're searching. 

Sometimes all that's available is an abstract, or summary, of your article. This doesn't mean you can't get the article. It might be in another database at Adams State, or in Google Scholar. Even if it's not, you can usually get it by filling out an Article Request Form.

Selecting Full Text will eliminate these results, but can be helpful if you're in a hurry.
