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 the 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 (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 our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Article Request Form.

Selecting "Full Text" as a limiter in your search will eliminate (potentially relevant) results that may still be accessible to you, but can be helpful if you're in a hurry and cannot wait for delivery from outside sources.
