This paper discusses the various full text models that have emerged in the last few years. Three basic models of full text, with variations, will be submitted to a reality check as concerns their advantages, disadvantages and challenges that lay ahead. We will be discussing Publisher-supplied full text; third-party, or Aggregator supplied full text; and Distributed, "linked" full text - in which a bibliographic database provider links to (usually) publisher-supplied full text.
