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 scans requests due to copyright
  • 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://... ). You can share scans of pages or documents using a file-sharing service, provided it is legal, or by emailing the content to the requester.
  • You can 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.

Looking for review of Sexual PreferenceEdit

Hello, I am looking for a review of Sexual Preference. The review is by Robert Herron, it was published in Christopher Street magazine's December 1981 issue, Vol. 5 Issue 11. Based on information from EBSCO, it appears to be on pages 55 through 57 of the issue. The ISSN is ISSN 0146-7921 and the Accession Number is 9357026. Note that while the review is listed on EBSCO, EBSCO does not provide the actual text of the review, otherwise I wouldn't be making this request. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 20:08, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

@FreeKnowledgeCreator: According to this Google snippet view, the review is written by Lawrence Mass. -Gazal world (talk) 08:21, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

If the review was actually written by Lawrence Mass rather than Robert Herron, I obviously want to correct the information in the article. EBSCO could possibly be wrong about the review's author, but I would need further confirmation of that. FreeKnowledgeCreator (talk) 21:18, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

Article in the North Mississippi TimesEdit

Hello. In order to expand Robertson-Yates House, could someone please send me:

Please ping me when you have it. Thank you.Zigzig20s (talk) 13:03, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

The LOC lists two libraries which hold archives of the newspaper [3], and worldcat also lists two others (OCLC 17576944), all in Mississippi. The paper was apparently renamed multiple times and only called the 'North Mississippi Times' between 1976 and 1981, so other archived copies might be filed under one of the other names. The publisher and editor, Pam Mcphail Ivy, also compiled a book, 'Our Heritage', which might contain the article you want or otherwise be helpful. Here's a listing for it in the University of Mississippi library, with incorrect oclc: [4]. The Genealogical Society of Desoto County Mississippi will sell you a photocopy for $35: [5].

LouisAragon, sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant that because the Atlas is from 2012 the doi should work; it doesn't have the excuse of recent publication like this month's Iran and the Caucasus. The Atlas isn't that old or obscure, and whilst I didn't find it, it's entirely possible someone else here will. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 18:24, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

@Zigzig20s: I'm not sure what the "5" in your citation stands for (page number?). Notre Dame special collections implies that the April 1955 issue would be volume 4 issue 3. They don't have it, nor does any other WorldCat library. Unless a volunteer here happens to have a garage full of 1950s body building magazines, I don't think there's any hope of the resource exchange supplying this. --Worldbruce (talk) 18:34, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Confirmation on unconfirmed episode of Chronicle (UK TV programme)Edit

Am trying to fill episode gaps on Chronicle (UK TV programme). Can anyone confirm if the 21 June 1969 program "The Gilstone Treasure" was a Chronicle episode, or if not (ideally) identify which is the unidentified episode between #3 and #99. Possibilities for verification:

  • the actual episode. The BBC website doesn't appear to be any help, but has either the programme or B-roll footage (the latter is probably not useful).
  • the Radio Times for June 19, 1969. Vol 183. number 2380 — in case the OCRed listing has omitted something or if there happened to be a feature story.
  • a (p)review of the episode in another TV guide/newspaper.

Thanks, ~Hydronium~Hydroxide~(Talk)~ 09:50, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Hydronium Hydroxide. From the Google Books snippet view it looks like the Radio Times just had the article title. Luckily someone has posted some images of this issue of the Radio Times on Twitter. The second image shows it as a "pick of the week" and describes it as a "notable repeat", so perhaps not the thing you are looking for? If someone has a subscription, the same programme seems to have been broadcast in Australia on September 19, 1971; see this guide in the Sydney Morning Herald again doesn't seem to be more than a line of text there though - Dumelow (talk) 23:36, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
@Hydronium Hydroxide: i got access to the article. At 3.40 it says The Gilstone Treasure - Sicily Isles It ran from 3.40 to 4.30. I don't think it's what you're looking for as there's no mention of Chronicle. But: on 21 June 1969 page 2 of The Guardian, The Gilstone Treasure is mentioned but no mention of the Chronicle. It says 9 5 The Gilstone Treasure: underwater adventure (C). I've a feeling there is no episode from that date as there is a mention of Chronicle on may 24th and july 19th, nothing in between. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 00:31, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
@Dumelow and MrLinkinPark333: Thanks both. I missed that the June one was a repeat of a 9 Jan 69 programme of the same name also with no indications it's part of the Chronicle series (although Chronicle covered the subject in an earlier segment). I've struck most of the question as answered, and the broader question looks unlikely to be easily answered without something like a BBC production schedule or similar, so may well end up archived without further leads. ~Hydronium~Hydroxide~(Talk)~ 05:35, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

No, I’m not aware. I’m sure the entire article is much bigger, but I suppose pp. 67-69 are on Phanerpglossa specifically. Also, I have been told that providing many pages is against Wikipedia policy. Of cause I would not mind getting the entire article, as it would probably help to create or improve articles on other, related species. Thank you for pointing this out however.

Somerset county cricket, by FS Ashley-CooperEdit

All I need to know about this book (OCLC 65558771) is, did Ashley-Cooper credit the photographs to someone else, or leave them uncredited? (Specifically, the one of Edwin "Ted" James Tyler)

History of the Northern Areas of Pakistan - bookEdit

  • Dani, Ahmad Hasan (1989). History of the Northern Areas of Pakistan. Islamabad: National Institute for Historical and Cultural Research. pp. 120–122. OCLC 30679371.

For Tanoli

This is for fact checking purposes. I am aware that there is a revised edition of the book, with a slightly modified title - History of the Northern Areas of Pakistan up to 2000AD - but I'll need the edition that is cited in the article. I'm also aware that the edition I need is available via Google Books but it is only snippet view where I am, and I am physically incapable of getting to any library (or even outdoors at the moment) so nothing at WorldCat is going to be much use to me.

Unverifiable citation for Psyche article?Edit

Reed, Edward S., on the narrowing of the study of the psyche into the study of the mind.

For Psyche (psychology), currently citation 8 under the Psychoanalysis heading. Is this source verifiable? My searches have turned up nothing.

Thanks, GreyDuvet (talk) 02:55, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

@GreyDuvet: It looks to me like that's meant to be a general 'see what Reed has to say about this' rather than a citation of a specific work. You might find Reed's work 'From Soul to Mind: The Emergence of Psychology from Erasmus Darwin to William James' helpful: [15]. Wikiklrsc (talk · contribs), who added that footnote just over 10 years ago, is still an active editor and might perhaps be able to assist you. Cheers, gnu57 03:15, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
Will look at it. -- Wikiklrsc (talk) 16:58, 12 February 2019 (UTC) (Bob)
I have revised the citation. It's been a long time since I added it but I had to refresh my recollection as to what I was thinking at the time ten years ago when I added it as a note. I pointed to a page in the preface, page xv, as a train of thought I think I was quoting but it's admittedly a tad wobbly. But there was more in the book but I can't quite find it now. Will pursue as time permits. Thanks for the query. --- Wikiklrsc (talk) 16:42, 13 February 2019 (UTC) (Bob)

Bidyut Prabha Devi (Monograph)Edit

For Bidyutprabha Devi.

Nizil Shah, unless I'm missing something, there is just one Worldcat library with e-access to this (e-only, apparently) journal (Stockholm). Which is ... rather weird. I think your best chance is to email the author directly and just ask for the article. There are two email addresses in her CV on I'd try that. — Pajz (talk) 18:13, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Molecular EcologyEdit

For Carlton Dawe‎:

William Carlton Lanyon Dawe's parents Henry Dawe and Francis Lanyon gave birth to William in Moonta, South Australia in July 1865.[1]


An IP recently added the above fact and cite, but Molecular Ecology seems so unlikely for this fact it should be verified, if possible. Thanks, GreenC 21:51, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

@GreenC: The full text of the Molecular Ecology article is available here. Nowhere is there any mention of "Dawe". —Bruce1eetalk 22:11, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, Bruce1ee. It does bring into question the rest of the sources added by the IP, though they look more legit, most of them are behind paywalls. What do you think? One option is AGF and remove Molecular Ecology as a sort of typo and keep the remaining. -- GreenC 22:30, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
@GreenC: I have access to the Oxford Reference source, and the statements in the Dawe article referencing this source are mostly supported – there's no mention of him having written poetry, but that could just be an omission in the source. I can send you the Oxford Reference source if you want. I think the Molecular Ecology source should be removed as it is not related to the article – the IP may have accidentally mixed it up with another source. The other paywalled sources are probably ok, but unless we can see them, we can't be sure. —Bruce1eetalk 06:25, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Theodore Edgar McCarrick: honorary degreesEdit

The laicized ex-cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick received a large number of honorary degrees during his career—27 or 35 by different counts. (This is particularly noteworthy because many of the degrees are now being revoked.) I've managed to confirm only 19 so far.

  • Could someone with access to please check whether this source supports his having received one from Felician College in 1987? "Archbishop McCarrick to address Felician College graduates". The Messenger. Paterson, New Jersey. May 14, 1987. p. 6.
  • More generally, I would be grateful for any assistance in tracking down where and when he received the remaining degrees.

Cheers, gnu57 03:25, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

@gnu: The article states he did receive an honorary degree from Felician College. I've sent you the link to the clip. —Bruce1eetalk 05:49, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
