Finding a source[edit]

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 request[edit]

  • 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.

March 2019[edit]

The Seattle Times archives: Newsbank[edit]

Per talk page discussions, it seems that Caroline Brady died in Bellevue Washington, on 5 November 1980. I have been unable to find anything resembling an obituary for her, perhaps hindered by the undercoverage of Washington newspapers on Newspapers.com and NewspaperArchive.com. The Seattle Public Library, however, has online access to a number of newspapers, including, with a library card, The Seattle Times (link). Does anyone have a library card, and if so, would you be willing to search through the archive to see if there is any coverage of Brady, particularly an obituary or death notice? Thanks, Usernameunique (talk) 16:07, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

I believe anyone with a subscription to Newsbank can see the Seattle Times archives using this trimmed link. Cheers, gnu57 17:24, 14 March 2019 (UTC)

@Usernameunique: I just spent a few minutes searching through The Times from the 1960s to late 1980s, but nothing with her name came up. The P-I archives don't go back any further than 1985 and didn't show anything either. SounderBruce 23:45, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have access to that source. Nikkimaria (talk) 11:26, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
Nikkimaria, err. I checked the history of Harmattan's page over French wiki and saw you dealing with the requests before it got shifted to the new platform......:-(
Can you lead to anyone, who has access? WBGconverse 11:45, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
frwiki has a userbox for people with access which might help. Nikkimaria (talk) 11:55, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
@WBG: I understand what you want, but am mystified by the discussion with Nikkimaria. Do you think TWL's deal with L'Harmattan includes the book? I'm disinclined to sign up just to find out, but then I'm not the one who wants the source. Have you tried signing up? --Worldbruce (talk) 22:22, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
Near-certainly.
I asked for help over the French-wiki where one ignored whilst the other two said that their subscriptions have long expired. (TWL ought to keep a list of users who have access to different sources.)
Consuming one subscription for accessing a single book is a bit selfish. WBGconverse 13:08, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
@Samwalton9 (WMF): -- Can you help out, in any manner, in light of our partnership? WBGconverse 18:39, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
Asking for access to individual resources isn't really a process we support right now. I will say that we have a lot of accesses available for L'Harmattan, so I wouldn't worry about taking an account for just one, or a few, sources. Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 08:08, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Cinema Vision India[edit]

I need pages 58 to 59, including the article's title and author's name. Kailash29792 (talk) 09:32, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

@Kailash29792: Can you tell us which article you plan to use the resource to expand on? OhanaUnitedTalk page 22:15, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
The original intention was only Mullum Malarum. If I see any other film talked about in the article, that too. Kailash29792 (talk) 03:44, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
@Kailash29792: Volunteers here don't always have direct access to a source, but may still be able to order it for you from a library or through a personal connection, if you supply full bibliographic information.
Help us help you. You can get the complete information by asking Google Books. Start on their page you linked. At the bottom, click "Report an issue". That brings up a "Contact us" form. Choose the last option, "I have a question or feedback about a book". Fill in the contact section, give them the page numbers 58-59, categorize your inquiry as "Other", and explain that you need the issue, date, article title, and author in order to request the article from the closed stacks of a library. They are usually very helpful. --Worldbruce (talk) 22:38, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I've done just that. --Kailash29792 (talk) 13:49, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
I've made an ILL request but given the lack of bibliographic information, I'm not sure how long this will take and if it will be successful. — Pajz (talk) 16:28, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Kailash29792, no luck at my end. Only issues 1 and 2 are available in Germany and it doesn't appear to be in issue 2 (I have the pages in front of me ... it's the beginning of an essay titled "When the Sun Set on Prabhat (from Keshavrao Bhole's essay collection Antara)"). — Pajz (talk) 15:00, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
One of the two authors is K. Hariharan. Did you find the page reading that? Kailash29792 (talk) 16:45, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Kailash29792, I'm not sure I understand the question. As I said, I could only check the pages from the 2nd issue and the article isn't there. It might be in issue no. 3, issue no. 4, or Google may have misidentified the page -- I wouldn't know. — Pajz (talk) 01:51, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Kailash29792, try asking Google to confirm the issue/date/pages, using the "Report an issue" link at the bottom of the Google Books page, and then selecting "I have a question or feedback about a book." They're usually quite responsive. --Usernameunique (talk) 03:46, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
Tried that, still no response. I wish they'd be available for purchase digitally. However, by scanning through the table of contents, I deduced that the article title must simply be "Tamil Nadu". Kailash29792 (talk) 04:06, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
Kailash29792, completely missed that part above. I would try again, though; normally it only takes a few days, so perhaps that request simply got mislaid somewhere. --Usernameunique (talk) 04:15, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Reviews of Ancient Evenings[edit]

Hello, I am looking for the text of three discussions of Norman Mailer's Ancient Evenings, for use at the article Ancient Evenings. In each case EBSCO contains only a listing of the review, not its text.

The first is the review by Dennis Forbes. It was published in The Advocate, 7/21/83, Issue 372, p50. ISSN: 0001-8996.

The second is the review by Boyd McDonald. It was published in the New York Native, 9/12/83, Issue 72, p40. Title: "Ba, Ka and Ca-ca".

The third is the review by Philip Kuberski. It was published in ELH. Volume 56, Issue 1, pp. 229-254. ISSN: 00138304. DOI: 10.2307/2873130. Title: "The metaphysics of postmodern death: Mailer's Ancient evenings and Merrill's The changing light at Sandover". There is a link to an extract from the review here.

question to user Sudiani about a Hollywood Reporter page 1 Superman movie article from December 28, 1978[edit]

question to user Sudiani

Hi, I am User:Starmarco2014 and you helped me to ask a question to user Sudiani about a Hollywood Reporter page 1 article from December 28, 1978. He answered this: "I don't have a copy of the article/edition. The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts have the daily editions of The Hollywood Reporter for that period which is where I saw the information. If you are just interested in the Jaws II record, possibly Variety reported similar information when Superman came out and their back issues are available online."

I would like to answer that and ask another question :

Thanks for your attention Sudiani. I actually want to know about Superman movie Christmas 1978 box office and Hollywood Reporter from December 27 and 28 ,1978 has such info ( I am a Variety subscriber and unfortunately it doesn't have this information from Hollywood Reporter that you saw.) As I live in Brazil, I would like a favor: one day,if you go again to The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts , can you please copy the text or photo the 'Superman' takes $3.2 mil one day December 28th 1978 article for me?? And see if the December 27 edition has more info? I would be so grateful... Regards. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Starmarco2014 (talkcontribs) 05:14, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

CRSP seminar[edit]

I need the article shown in this google snippet which I think is (based on corresponding page numbers),

  • Rosenberg, B., and V. Marathe. "Common factors in security returns: microeconomic determinants and macroeconomic correlations", Proceedings of the Seminar on the Analysis of Security Prices, (1975): pp. 61-115.

It's a seminar of the Center for Research in Security Prices. The article in Barron's referred to in the snippet would also be useful if it can be identified.

@Spinningspark: Can you elaborate on how you reached your conclusions regarding the bibliographic information? Those authors did not write a paper by that title on those pages of the 1975 proceedings. They did write a piece by that title that was published in 1976 as working paper 44 in the Research Program in Finance Working Papers series,[1] but it does not contain anything about Barrons, Murphy's law, or Yhprum's law. Did you ask Google Books for the author and title? --Worldbruce (talk) 23:27, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
@Worldbruce and Winged Blades of Godric: Sorry, I can't remember where I saw the citation that led me to that conclusion, but you appear to be right, the one I cited is 1976, not 1975. The page number in the snippet is p. 73 in vol. 20, 1975. I have no more information on the Barron's source unless there is a full citation in the seminar article. The snippet I can read says "Barron's recently suggested a converse of Murphy's law, which they labeled Yhprum's law." SpinningSpark 11:33, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
An even bigger mistake was not looking on the article talk page. Someone else found the same info in 2012 and gave better citations
* Alan Abelson, Barron's, 9 December 1974
* *Robert W. Murphy (May 1975). "New Fiduciary Responsibilities Under the Pension Reform Act of 1974". Proceedings of the Seminar on the Analysis of Security Prices 20 (1): 73-112.

See also Google Books: [2] and [3] (two different scans of the 1917 volume) give only four pages containing "Arthur" and "Cornwallis", and if you look at the snippets (which I hope are also displayed at your end), the individual's only mention appears to be on page 428 as part of a list.

I will be going to JU, sometime around two months from now; that's a certain way out. I happen to know one of the current editors (presuming that the details over their website is correct), personally and will see, as to whether it can speed this up. WBGconverse 09:55, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Winged Blades of Godric, in the alternative / if the attempt to speed it up should prove unfruitful, I could order the volume (25.1987 per http://jjcl.jdvu.ac.in/jjcl/upload/JJCL_Index.pdf) from a partner library (may take a week or so). Just putting this here since two months is, of course, quite a bit of time. — Pajz (talk) 01:45, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

@Zigzig20s: There's a workaround. If you click on the pages that has the article and then print, you can see the article. It's less than the maximum 20 pages of printing. Not sure if it's beneficial to you or not. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 23:14, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Page(s) for part "and the fact that Mary Magdalene always appears first, whenever she is listed in the Synoptic Gospels as a member of a group of women, indicates that she was seen as the most important out of all of them." & "in lists of the disciples, Mary Magdalene occupies a similar position among Jesus's female followers as Simon Peter does among the male apostles". --Glorious Engine (talk) 05:24, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Glorious Engine: That quote is from the article prose, not the cited book. Ideally we need page numbers, but quotes from the book may also help if it is available electronically. —Bruce1eetalk 09:48, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
And also the page that contains this quote: "Simon Peter said to them: Let Mary go forth from among us, for women are not worthy of the life. Jesus said: Behold, I shall lead her, that I may make her male, in order that she also may become a living spirit like you males. For every woman who makes herself male shall enter into the kingdom of heaven" Mimihitam (talk) 07:40, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Hm, sent to Glorious Engine and Mimihitam (different documents). However, I might have overlooked something here since the 2004 edition is not in the Library of Congress catalogue from which I concluded that it's probably just a reprint of the original (1992) edition. However, Amazon suggests that the 2004 edition is "revised" (which, on the other hand, still doesn't necessarily mean there have been changes), so I'm actually not sure if the copies are helpful. Anyway. As to the copies for User:Mimihitam, note that I didn't find the exact quote but what appears to be a different translation. Page 65 is from the translation contained in the volume, page 121 from a section titled "A Reading" by Harold Bloom, pp. 111-121. — Pajz (talk) 21:39, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
