Finding a sourceEdit

Tips for finding a source yourself
  • Send a request to the author(s) of research papers for a copy of their paper by email
  • Check on Google Books, or your local library or national library may be able to obtain it through an interlibrary loan or subscription
  • Search Google Scholar for archived copies of journals in institutional repositories
  • Check whether your alma mater's library offers electronic document delivery services for alumni—many do, for a small fee

Note that sites like LibGen and Sci-Hub offer direct, free access to a very large range of publications, but there are legal questions around their use and neither the Wikimedia Foundation nor the Wikipedia community endorses them.

Making a request
  • A request may be an open question or you may ask for a specific journal, article or work
  • All kinds of sources are possible here: newspapers, magazine article, databases, encyclopedias, court decisions, laws, books, etc.
  • We cannot perform full book copy requests due to copyright. Please ask for specific pages that relate to the article(s) you need them for
  • You may contact research helpers directly or make a request on this page
  • To receive email without disclosing your email address publicly, configure your email in Special:Preferences
  • Provide as much detail as possible: a full citation with author, title, publisher, and date or identifiers like DOI, ISBN ISSN, PMID, etc.
  • Once a request has been fulfilled add the {{Resolved}} template.
  • Filled requests are archived.
  • Requests unfilled after three months will be archived

Fulfilling a requestEdit

  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests.
  • Indicate which part or parts of the request is being handled so others do not duplicate your work.
  • Notify (mention) the requester using {{ping|REQUESTER_USERNAME}}
  • You can:
    • point to a pre-existing electronic document by giving its URL ( http://... )
    • share scans of pages or documents using a file-sharing service, provided it is legal
    • upload out of copyright works to Wikimedia Commons and/ or Wikisource (but be careful that this does not breach your own institution's policies)
    • email a link or plain text to a requester using the Special:EmailUser feature but for attachments, you need to ask them to mail you first so you can reply.

Copyright tips:

  • Respect copyrights and terms of services of any online services you use.
  • Share content in a limited manner that is targeted at as few individuals as possible to achieve a specific improvement on Wikipedia. All content is shared under a presumed non-commercial, educational, fair use purpose in order to conduct research about topics on Wikipedia and/or to improve Wikipedia content.
  • Share copies privately rather than with a publicly accessible link whenever possible. Copyrighted articles from print publications or copies obtained through online databases should not be uploaded for unrestricted distribution via open websites. Preferably, do not share login access codes for entire websites; rather, share only an individual copy of a resource.
  • Remember that you take on the individual risk when sharing content, and act in a way that is comfortable and safe for you. Individual editors are solely responsible for sharing copyrighted content and assume all legal risks.

I've been working on a substantial expansion to Peloneustes, and both of these publications have stood out to me as utile for the section on paleoenvironment, with the first also being significant for classification and the second for paleobiology. I've spent some considerable time looking for these publications, but without success. Can anyone email them to me?

Thanks, --Slate WeaselT - C - S⟩ 23:58, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

* Burger, John R. (2020-03-24). One-Handed Histories: The Eroto-Politics of Gay Male Video Pornography. Routledge. ISBN 978-1-317-95258-9., index shows a few-pages span.

Thanks, Gleeanon409 (talk) 02:34, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Gleeanon409, sent #2, #3 (it's not a monograph but an edited volume; the one hit on p 168 is from an article by Capino, see table of contents). As a side-note, if you see that an index shows a few-pages span, it would generally be helpful if you could give us that page range ;). As to #4, I can access the printed volume next week, but am not sure what you'd like me to do. You write that you don't know what's in there, but presumably something prompted you to request it ... Do you have a page? Do you expect a mention in the index? — Pajz (talk) 01:10, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
@Pajz:, thank you!
For #4, I’m hoping either “John Duffy” and/or “jd Slater” will pop result(s) but google books gave only that “something” was there. He came of age in nyc and was a model, porn actor so pier sex is in line. Gleeanon409 (talk) 05:28, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, Gleeanon409 (talk) 07:00, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

@Gleeanon409: As a matter of best practice, I don't think it is a good idea to extend threads ad infinitum with new requests, and would suggest instead that you create a new section once you realise at a later point that you need additional material from other works as well. Thanks. --Gazal world (talk) 11:16, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, the article is at AFD so I’m trying to find some reasonably strong sources to keep it from being deleted. I’m doing this all by phone so it takes me a bit longer to go through each one, and with no, or very little available by google book search it’s very difficult to know where to look.

Two, [2] and [3] (the chapter on air transport), NWU and Harvard refer to a different, third issue just in case the BNF cannot fulfill my order there.

@Mcrsftdog: Given the cemetery's topicality, perhaps contact University of Toronto library to see who their point person is for Internet Archive? I'm sure that they'd add it to the digitization list. They just uploaded a book on August 19, their first since March 19, so I'm guessing that they're back, at least to a limited extent. -- Zanimum (talk) 23:44, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi Umimmak, unfortunately I have not been able to find anything about the article's internal structure, so I don't know. Is there an index of sections? Constantine 10:30, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Cplakidas during COVID I don’t have direct access to it; it would have been a scan and deliver request, but there are limits to those. Umimmak (talk) 13:29, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Umimmak I see. In that case, based on the sporadic references I've seen to specific page(s), I'd ask for pp. 200-250. Thanks a lot for your assistance! Constantine 13:40, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@Cplakidas: okay well I put in the request, let's see if it gets approved. Hopefully I'll have something within the next days. Umimmak (talk) 13:51, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@Cplakidas: ah I'm so sorry :( I was just notified my library confusingly only has Volume VII in the New Series, which isn't the volume you need. Apologies for any false hope. Umimmak (talk) 15:13, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Umimmak damn, that's disappointing, but thanks anyway :) Constantine 16:18, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Cplakidas, well, I second the comment that that's just too many pages. If you're based in Vienna, perhaps you have a chance to access the volume in the National Library (ZDB record). If, for whatever reason, that doesn't work for you, I can either (a) check first if there is a table of contents (and, if so, send it to you) or (b) send you the requested page range (ie, pp. 200-250) right away. Let me know how you wish to proceed. Thanks. — Pajz (talk) 17:52, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

  • "Worms". PC Review. United Kingdom (41, 49–51). 1995. ISSN 0266-321X. — there must be a review of Worms in one the issues, most probably in one from 49 to 51. Also there's possibly a preview of this game in the issue 41 or so. The reason for me believing so is that it was mentioned in The One magazine that PC Review also expressed interest in this game. Unfortunately, 1995 issues of this magazine are unavailable online.
  • "Worms". PC Games. United Kingdom (8). 1995. ISSN 1351-0290. — there could be a preview of Worms in this one too as it was also mentioned in The One as one of the magazines that participated in testing the early version of the game. It shut down before the game was released, but there still may be a preview, presumably in its March 1995 issue (008).

Hello guys, looking for particular reviews from some old game magazines. I'm writing an article about Worms 1995 video game from scratch in the Russian Wikipedia (it is going to replace the existing stub and become featured). I'm able to find most of the reviews online, but some are unavailable, like this one. Maybe I will add more articles from other magazines to my request some time later or will create a new request if this one will be archived by that time, but for now it's just what you see.

Thank you very much for your efforts. Coolak (talk) 20:26, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

P. S. please ping me if you're able to help and/or comment anything because I barely open English Wikipedia. Thank you. Coolak (talk) 20:43, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

@Coolak, I haven't found a full run of Amiga Action claimed by preservationists. There are a bunch of Amiga and retro mag preservationist circles online that you could ask, but it's going to be hard to find. Alternatively, @Miyagawa, are you still a reader at the British Library? This editor is looking for a scan from issue 78 from this holding. For more holdings, see OCLC 872610756. (not watching, please {{ping}}) czar 06:19, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
@Czar: Thank you for the suggestion. Indeed, I have seen on abime that it's one of the rare issues, and I have used all of the Google Search advanced techniques that I know of. That's why I created this request as the last resort, so maybe someone with access to British libraries could help. Coolak (talk) 01:31, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Added a page from a weekly UK newspaper to my request. Now it's more than "video game reviews", but I decided to keep the title in case someone has it bookmarked. Coolak (talk) 09:08, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

It's so refreshing!Edit

Hi guys, I'm resurrecting ye olden text citations. I'm a newbie to Wikipedia Library still.

  • Ricciardi, John. "Still Super After All These Years." Electronic Gaming Monthly 14.9 (2001): 126. Business Source Complete. Web. July 23, 2013.
  • "Fight!." Electronic Gaming Monthly 14.12 (2001): 212. Business Source Complete. Web. July 23, 2013.
  • La Franco, Robert (June 3, 1996). "Take That, Nintendo". Forbes. Vol. 157 no. 11. pp. 96–97. Retrieved August 4, 2020.

I can't find Electronic Gaming Monthly at all or full Forbes (only the abstract) [edit: I found full Forbes] in EBSCO or ProQuest though those citations say they were in Business Source Complete in 2013. That's EBSCO, right? Did they leave EBSCO? Thanks! — Smuckola(talk) 06:37, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

@Smuckola: I have access to the third article (from my university ProQuest account). Please Wikimail me and I'll send it to you. —Bruce1eetalk 06:47, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
(Edit conflict:) Smuckola, I've sent you #3 from EBSCO. I can likewise not find the Electronic Gaming Monthly in EBSCO. I don't know if it's vanished from all bundles but I also noticed some discrepancy to our local library catalogue (which states that our EBSCO subscription extends to Electronic Gaming Monthly, issues 2000-12-01 - 2009-01-01), so that may indicate that indeed something changed on EBSCO's part. — Pajz (talk) 06:55, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
@Bruce1ee: thanks anyway, I got #3 from Pajz. @Pajz: Oh my goodness, are you telling me that there are different entire sets of publications in each bundle in different institutions' subscriptions to EBSCO? They bounce publications around between collections like Netflix versus HBO versus Starz, or Hulu versus Hulu Plus versus Live TV? That stinks. So does WP:LIBRARY have no EGM and only abstracts of Forbes? [edit: I found full Forbes] Or is it possible that they're duplicated in other collections within the multiverse of Wikipedia Library? I mean I don't even know how to search where to search within WP:LIBRARY. If not, this just makes us cite the third party master search engines like Internet Archive or fansites of magazine scans. Oh well, they can't take those away. I just care that I can make a permanent and free-of-charge accessible citation. Thank you so much for #3 at least, because I do need to read these myself for expanding the Wikipedia articles! — Smuckola(talk) 10:53, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Smuckola, don't know, or perhaps I misunderstand what you're saying. It's certainly true is that EBSCO offers different products with different publications and that, as a result of that, different institutions have access to different materials. I do not think, however, that if two institutions subscribe to EBSCO Business Source Complete they have access to different sets of publications. The institutions I am affiliated with do subscribe to EBSCO Business Source Complete, EBSCO Academic Search Complete, and a few other bundles, and I noticed in one of the local library catalogues that it says we have access to Electronic Gaming Monthly via EBSCO, while in fact, it doesn't look like we do. Given that these local catalogue entries are typically imported from the likes of EBSCO when the database is integrated into the local catalogue, and that the subsequent updating often isn't that reliable, my guess was simply that the journal used to be available in EBSCO but no longer is. That does happen sometimes. I take it from Umimmak's comment that they've run into a similar issue. — Pajz (talk) 17:15, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

@Smuckola: in theory I have online access to the first two, but I'm having issues with the database so I've emailed my librarian and hopefully I can get a response. At the very least once COVID is over I'll have access to the print volumes. (P.S. You might want to consider striking out the third request if you've received a copy already just to make things clearer to other editors.) Umimmak (talk) 14:40, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

@Umimmak: Guess what. In fact, Nikki of the WP:LIBRARY sent me this URL to the full article of #3 and it is the same content as what Pajz had sent me. Can I shorten that URL? Are you guys thinking that WP:LIBRARY has no EGM whatsoever? Thanks! — Smuckola(talk) 01:41, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

@Smuckola: hey just wanted to give an update and that I still am working on the Electronic Gaming Monthly but it's taking me longer than expected to fulfill those requests. Umimmak (talk) 20:55, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Looks like this is gonna be even more delayed, my library has had a lot of services pushed back recently. Might have to wait until things open up more, apologies for any false hope. Umimmak (talk) 19:57, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

Reference supporting a statement about the addition of polynomialsEdit

I am struggling to find a reference for a basic statement about the addition of polynomials. It's for this article: Polynomials. While it's trivial to find references supporting the claim that the set of polynomials is closed under the operation of addition, some editors (including myself) would like to see if we could construct a statement that can be referenced without the word "closed". The current wording is:

a sum of polynomials is always another polynomial.

Proposed alternative wording includes:

the addition of polynomials is an operation that takes any two polynomials and produce always another polynomial

The suggestion has been made that this source is worth reviewing:

I see that it exists in Google books but in very limited snippet view. Can I persuade someone to take a look and see if either of the phrases linked above or something similar could be referenced in this book?

For Polynomials

Thanks, S Philbrick(Talk) 13:20, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Nevermind - I reworded the claim and located a source.--S Philbrick(Talk) 13:56, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
@Sphilbrick: the book is available on Lib Gen, wink wink, but if you prefer you can email me and I can send you my copy of the relevant pages. Umimmak (talk) 14:00, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Umimmak, Thanks for the very prompt response, but lets hold for a bit to see if my revised wording and reference sticks. I hope it will, but if it fails, I may be back, hat in hand. S Philbrick(Talk) 14:37, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, Zayeem (talk) 18:47, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't have access to either volume, but since it's stated above that We cannot perform full book copy requests due to copyright. Please ask for specific pages that relate to the article(s) you need them for, I've managed to piece together the table of contents for Osmany 1992 via strategically using Google Books' snippet view
  • Preface [vii–viii]
  • Introduction [1–10]
  • I. Muslim consciousness & political awakening in Bangladesh [11–40]
  • II. Bangladeshi nationalism: The process of interaction between secular and Islamic elements up to 1947 [41–74]
  • III. Bangladeshi nationalism and the emerging middle class [75–108]

Hopefully this helps! Umimmak (talk) 20:01, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I did see the guideline but wanted to see the table of content first, thanks by the way. For the first source, pages 40-60, and for second source, Introduction, Chapters II and III would suffice I think. I hope it's within limit. Thanks. --Zayeem (talk) 15:20, 7 August 2020 (UTC)

It's a small cardboard-cover booklet from 1925 of 14 pages total. Could someone please scan all 14 pages and send it me? This is for articles Petrus Serrarius, John Dury, Abraham Pereyra, and Spinoza. Thank you, warshy (¥¥) 00:27, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

@Warshy: I won’t be able to help you with this for probably a few months due to COVID-related closures, so hopefully another editor can help you before then, but in theory I should eventually have access to this via microfilm if you still need this when things are open again. For other editors’ convenience I also made each of those OCLC numbers their own separate clickable links. Umimmak (talk) 21:09, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
Thank you, Umimmak. I understand. I saw the microfilm option in the item's record in WorldCat. As you say, hopefully someone will have access to it before "things are open again" (whenever that may be...). Thanks again, warshy (¥¥) 21:32, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Ear Magazine, April 1990Edit

For Guitar Solos 3.

According to this Google Book snippet, page 53 of Ear, Volume 15 has a piece on Guitar Solos 3 (and Guitar Solos 2). The snippet text reads, "Guitar Solos 2 Caroline Records (out of print), Guitar Solos 3 Rift Records. Traditional guitar playing is most definitely not the focus of these two LPs. Compiled by Fred Frith, whose own album of guitar improvisations began the Guitar series, these ..." I think this is from the April 1990 issue of Ear Magazine (linked above), but I don't know the page number(s). Any help would be appreciated.

Requesting refs for Superstitions in Muslim societiesEdit

Hello, Season's Greetings,

For Superstitions in Muslim societies while some references are available still some users are insisting additional supportive references with following criteria.

  • The reference should talking about Superstitions in Muslim societies/ communities at global level.
  • The reference should preferably specifically mention word 'superstition or superstitious'. (The little problem here is in most Muslim countries and communities blasphemy is severely punished, so sources seem using some other optional wording, but some Wikipedia users are are asking for literal presence of word superstition to maintain content-for obvious reasons!)

Requesting support to suggest sources and content with refs if possible.

Thanks, Bookku (talk) 06:09, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello Bookku this is not the right place for asking this. Here you can ask for particular material from books/journals/magazines. --Gazal world (talk) 20:47, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

Okay, I understood thanks. Bookku (talk) 01:25, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

The Indian encyclopaediaEdit

  • The Indian encyclopaedia : biographical, historical, religious, administrative, ethnological, commercial and scientific (1st ed.). New Delhi: Cosmo Publications. 2002. ISBN 9788177552706.

In the article Oachira Temple, the topynomy section is unsourced. I searched in google books for "Omkarachira", "Oymanchira", and "Uvachanchira", and they all appear in the Kamli-Kyouk Phyu volume of the Indian Encylopedia. No snippets are available, and it doesn't identify the page number. Possibly the entry for Kayamkulam or Krishnapuram or Kollam? It would be great if we could source that section of the article (which should probably be moved to Oachira, but that's another issue).

I've already seen it on Google books. Google has pages 128 and 130 but not 129 where the rest of the discussion I'm following is. I also looked on Amazon which often shows pages that Google doesn't, but in this case there was no 'look inside' at all. Are there any other book sources that might have different pages?
