It Depends on How the Database is Set Up
SFX will get you as close to the full-text of an article as it can.

Sometimes the publisher's database is not structured to allow direct access to an article. 
In such cases, SFX will take you as close as it can, such as the journal home page or the contents page of the journal issue.

From there, navigate to the article yourself.


Journal Embargoes
Another reason may be that the article has an embargo. That means the publisher is refusing access to the electronic article for a period of time. The journal home page will usually detail the length of the embargo.
