Referencing sources from academic publishers[edit]

--Quinndo (talk) 06:05, 25 May 2020 (UTC) Dear Wikipedians,

I am a beginner. I am working on an article en:Christine Holgate. When trying to publish the work, I received the warning said that I would not be allowed to publish the changes if I use the sources from some academic publishers, which do not allow others to visit and verify. Those URL links contain '.proxy.', '.gate.'. Would you mind giving me the advice to fix this problem? I am looking forward to receiving your response! Thank you for your time! Quinndo

Hi Quinndo! I'd recommend you post this question at the Teahouse, where there are more editors present and someone can hopefully help you figure out what's going on. Best, {{u|Sdkb}}talk 06:18, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
   @Sdkb: Thank you! Quinndo
