Definition:

Another term for alignment, justification is the aligning of the top, bottom, sides, or middle of text or graphic elements on a page. While text can be left- or right-justified, justified text typically refers to text that is aligned to both the left and right margins — also called fully-justified or full justification.

Full justification of text (fully justified alignment) can create uneven and sometimes unsightly white spaces and rivers of white space in the text. When forced justification is used, if the last line is less than 3/4 of the column width the extra space added between words or letters is especially noticeable and unattractive.
