Good Morning! The article you are looking for is abstracted in Medline with Full Text. Unfortunately, the "with full text part" should actually say "with some full text". Not all of the scholarly literature is available in full text, particularly in OT, although the situation is improving. Also, the article you are seeking is published in German. The translated title is followed by Neurologische und funktionelle Erholung nach Querschnittlähmung. Verlaufs- und Beurteilungsstandards in der Paraplegiologie. (German). When a language is listed in brackets or parentheses in a database it means that the article is published in that language. 

The LibGuides are designed to take you to the best literature in your discipline. Your professors and librarians have pulled together this specific list of resources that you need for your studies.Here is a brief video on LibGuides.

For articles on your topic, start at the OT LibGuide at http://libguides.brenau.edu/OT . Click on the Articles tab. Scroll down to the database of your choice, such as Medline, and click the link. You will be asked to enter your 6 digit student ID and Brenau email username (everything before the @) to access the information. This is because Medline won't let researchers in unless someone has paid for you to access its articles, and the Library does that for all our students. Once in, add your search terms. Based on your article, I used "Treatment Outcome" AND "spinal cord injury AND functional". To limit your search results to full text articles in Medline, scroll down the search page to "Limit Your Results" and click full text. I also limited my results to the last 5 years and to English. You can also limit your results on the results page using the left side toolbar. This yields 100 results that might be useful.

If you are taking OT612 Evidence Based Practice I will see you in class soon!
