An article abstract is a summary of the full article and explains what the article is about (here's an example). It is valuable because it offers a quick overview of the article's content and can help you decide if the article will be useful for your research. Remember to cite from the full article in your research though, and never the abstract.
If you have more questions or need help access an article, please ask a librarian.
