How is Full Text represented in the EBSCOhost API?

The response to your search request will include the available formats for each result in the <formats> tag. The format types are indicated by the <fmt> type value.Type “T” indicates HTML full text and type “C” indicates HTML Full Text with Graphics. Type “P” indicates PDF full text. PDF full text results will also indicate the size of the associated PDF file.

 

An article with no full text available will be listed with the following format response:

 

<formats> 

            <fmt/> 

 </formats> 

 

 

The example below indicates the response for an article containing all three types of full text results:

 

<formats> 

            <fmt type="T"/> 

            <fmt type="C"/> 

            <fmt type="P" size="486K"/> 

 </formats>
