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 sources available in The Wikipedia Library Bundle – immediate access for editors active for at least six months with over 500 edits, at least 10 of them in the last month, and with no active blocks.
    • Available databases include: EBSCO, JSTOR, Oxford, ProQuest
  • Consider applying for access to additional Wikipedia Library sources at The Wikipedia Library Card Platform.
    • Available databases include: Gale, Newspapers.com, Project MUSE, Taylor & Francis
  • Search for periodical titles in the Wikipedia Library database index at The Wikipedia Library/A–Z.
  • 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, if applicable.

Note that sites like Library Genesis (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, OCLC, etc.
  • Indicate which Wikipedia articles are being improved.
  • 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://... )
    • 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.

Oricon weekly #1 singles from 1993-2004[edit]

  • "Single Chart-Book Complete Edition 1968-2005". Tokyo, Japan: Oricon. April 25, 2006. ISBN 4871310760. OCLC 676479535. Cite journal requires |journal= (help)

This is to be able to create the redlinks found in the Number-one singles in Japan template. According to Worldcat, this book is found in the Yale University Library and the National Diet Library (in Japan). I don't have access to either of those. I don't know page numbers, and it will be a lot of them as I need the weekly #1 singles for every week within 1993-2004 to be able to create the articles.

Thanks for any help! Please ping me on any reply. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 18:04, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Nihonjoe, 17 articles appear to use this work as a reference. Pinging the users who added them, in the hope that someone can assist. Incidentally, it looks like you added this as a source to three articles; how were you able to obtain the work then?

@Usernameunique: I had access to it for a brief time, but I no longer have access to it (and no way to regain access at this time).

For these ones, the reference indicates that the cited site uses this book as a reference. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 21:00, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi there. I used the refs for KM articles based on forum archives of someone who allegedly bought the 1968–2005 book and posted the highest ranks per artists by request (the thread has been archived). Most of them are Western artists. I know it's not that reliable as a source but this is the only way for me to have access to the book. Here's the link if you're interested.

Not at all, Damian Vo. I had a number of failed pings at the time, and this one probably didn't fire—possibly because I signed the comment in a separate paragraph from the ping. --Usernameunique (talk) 19:05, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, Looking4Dolphins (talk) 20:38, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

  • Looking4Dolphins, your best bets here are 1) emailing Toms directly (email address is here), 2) emailing the UCF library (email address available by clicking the "Contact Us" link here), or 3) paging through the link that Buidhe provided. Emailing Toms seems like it has a pretty decent chance of success. --Usernameunique (talk) 20:52, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
  • emailed directly to ask. (you guys are way better at googling apparantely, thanks) <-- second global contribution Looking4Dolphins (talk) 21:01, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Looking4Dolphins, you're right that the email address could be dead by now. Buidhe added a link to the contact section on her personal website as well, but it looks like it hasn't been updated in some time. Here's her profile on what looks like her employer's page—I don't see an email specifically for her, but you might get a message passed along through their Contact Us page. Or you could try reaching out through Twitter, where she seems reasonably active. --Usernameunique (talk) 00:11, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Usernameunique, i had previously tried here employer's page with no response before asking here (its certainly possible she's ignoring me - fair play to her). i'll give the twitter a try Looking4Dolphins (talk) 00:31, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Sdkb, the link that Bruce1ee just added gives you the option of buying the work for $20. But if it were me, I'd probably reach out to the authors (David Smukler contact info; David Millstone contact info) first, and see if they might spot me the pages given the intended use. --Usernameunique (talk) 07:06, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
Sdkb, any luck with the above approach? --Usernameunique (talk) 19:06, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
Usernameunique, thanks for following up. I don't really feel comfortable asking them to give their work away for free. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 19:15, 22 March 2021 (UTC)
@Sdkb: Requested via ILL. Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:56, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Ooh, there's a library that'll do that? Much thanks! {{u|Sdkb}}talk 17:58, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
@Sdkb: I mean, I have no notion whether anyone will lend it. But nothing stops me from asking my librarians to try to obtain it. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:46, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
@Sdkb: No luck. I'm told it is only in one library overseas (from the United States), and they won't lend it. Compassionate727 (T·C) 02:09, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
Compassionate727, any word on which library has it? --Usernameunique (talk) 19:40, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
@Usernameunique: Liverpool Public Library (of New York, actually, so not overseas like I was told). My librarian suggests that this library is not lending anything right now, so this may or may not be related to COVID-19. Compassionate727 (T·C) 12:34, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Hmm, I just searched Liverpool's own website, and if they have a copy they're not admitting so. I'll try calling my library and see if they might be willing to buy it. I very much appreciate the attempts to help! {{u|Sdkb}}talk 03:31, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Sources for critical reception of 2007 Family Guy episode[edit]

Specifically if any critics mention anything regards to the racial slur "Chinese, Japanese, dirty knees" being used in the episode.

Thanks, Prisencolin (talk) 20:38, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

@Prisencolin: We provide access to sources; we aren't going to do your research for you, not that we would know where to look anyway. I suggest you ask at a relevant WikiProject page for ideas. Compassionate727 (T·C) 14:57, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
To be fair, Compassionate727, the top of the page does say that "A request may be an open question or you may ask for a specific journal, article or work", which some people have previously interpreted to apply to requests such as this one. On the other hand, WP:Reference desk/Humanities might be a better place to ask. When I did some Googling regarding this Family Guy episode, I came up with nothing. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:03, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

Adaheli claim to fame or dubious conjecture[edit]

I'm trying to see if there's any truth to the claim that Adaheli is used in the song "Orinoco Flow". It's not in any official or unofficial lyrics, and it might simply be OR. Google, Gbooks, Gscholar yielded nothing, and since the song was really named for "Orinoco Studio" in England rather than the river specifically, it makes the claim more dubious.

I was wondering if this WSJ article has any mention? Cheers, Estheim (talk) 12:36, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

@Estheim: That Wall Street Journal article makes no mention of "Orinoco Flow". I'll do a bit more searching to see if I can find anything. —Bruce1eetalk 12:43, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks @Bruce1ee:, If you happen upon any sources about "Adaheli" the diety, I'd love that too; Gscholar came up blank. Cheers, Estheim (talk) 13:12, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
@Estheim: I haven't found anything linking Adaheli to "Orinoco Flow". But of course that doesn't mean it's not used in the song – I just didn't find anything. If you're looking for sources about Adaheli, the Internet Archive has several myth and legend encyclopedia here that mention Adaheli. —Bruce1eetalk 14:13, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
@Bruce1ee:, I'll take a look at those, appreciate it. I'm a bit disappointed I couldn't unravel the lyrical anomaly, mainly because that means I have been singing along with this song incorrectly for over 20 years. (I only hear "deh-ha, deh-ha"- I think this is going to haunt me foreverrr) For now I'll just add an unsourced tag. Cheers Estheim (talk) 15:28, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Estheim, have you tried asking Empaler, who added that claim last year to the Adaheli article, what the source is? --Usernameunique (talk) 02:50, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
@Usernameunique: Empaler seems to only edit every couple years or so, so we're unlikely to get a timely response. I agree the claim is OR and have removed it. @Estheim: around the same time, he made this addition to Orinoco; is this also OR? Compassionate727 (T·C) 18:03, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Compassionate727, it's not controversial. Sources generally point out that Orinoco was the name of the song's recording studio as well as the actual river. Using "environs" might not be accurate though, unless all of South America is considered. (I have to fix one of my edits now: I thought I was looking at an official page, but it was a fan-page.)

March 1988 Daily Variety article[edit]

For Die Hard. I might not have enough information for this, I'm going from info in the AFI Catalog RE: the film, which just says it was a March 4, 1988 Daily Variety item in the text, but is absent from the citations at the end of the article so I can't specify. I've looked on Gale, Ebsco and Proquest but the DV articles there don't seem to go back far enough. If anyone has UCLA access it seems like you can access archives from here. The information is specific to the completion of filming of Die Hard. If the info is too vague I apologize and feel free to close the request.

@Seppi333: Sorry, my mistake. I didn't realize it was just the abstract. —Bruce1eetalk 11:47, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
@Seppi333: I assume the document Bruce1ee sent you was about 300 words, with brief "objectives," "methods," and "results" sections and a one sentence conclusion? That's what I'm finding too. Importantly, when I search for this article within the journal on ScienceDirect, this article is categorized as a "conference abstract," and every other conference abstract I find is a similar length. I interpret this to mean that this is a written summary of what was originally an oral presentation; I have no idea whether the full version of that presentation was ever published, but if it was, this isn't it. Maybe try searching for other articles by these authors? Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:35, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
@Compassionate727: That is what I sent Seppi333. The request citation is confusing because it's for the abstract, not the full article. Even the page numbers specified (A235–A236) are for the abstract, not the article. —Bruce1eetalk 21:50, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
@Bruce1ee: Yeah, and like I said, I'm not convinced the "full" article actually exists; "conference abstract" indicates to me that this is a shortened form of an oral presentation, not a paper, and when I search the four authors' names via Google Scholar, this abstract is my only result. It is certainly possible the full paper was published at a later date (researchers often make presentations concerning their research while still awaiting publication), but if that is the case, this abstract isn't going to help us find the long version.

Grandma Gatewood quote[edit]

This quote by Grandma Gatewood was added by an IP in 2009 with no citation. It has since appeared on many other web pages, presumably copied from Wikipedia. Is it a hoax? Any help tracking where the quote originated, if at all, otherwise it will have to be removed. -- GreenC 00:36, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

GreenC, the earliest reference I found online is from 2010 (link). It attributes the excerpt to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy website, although it also parallels the Wikipedia article as it then appeared. (A relatively contemporaneous archived version of the ATC website, as linked from the 2010 reference, is more of a landing page than anything, and doesn't mention Gatewood.) Somewhat interestingly, in the comments section of the 2010 reference, there is a link to a Washington Post obit of the founder of Appalachian Outfitters; the comment was made the same day the obit was published, suggesting someone was just looking for places to publish the link, but it does suggest that Appalachian Outfitters and its founder were well-known entities.
In any event, if Gatewood actually said what the article claims she said, it seems likely that it may have been in some sort of trail-related publication, perhaps at the time of her death. You might try asking on the WhiteBlaze.net forum, which I understand to be the most active AT forum. Someone there may have a sense of where (if anywhere) the quotation may have been published. --Usernameunique (talk) 04:23, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. I'll try asking outside WP. -- GreenC 16:13, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

The Times Guide to the House of Commons 2019[edit]

A number of UK Members of Parliament, mostly those first elected in 2019 (see List of United Kingdom MPs by seniority (2019–present), are missing an exact date of birth in their articles. I believe the most comprehensive publication with this info is The Times Guide to the House of Commons, which has most dates but is rather expensive to purchase. I feel this information is fairly important for such public figures, and it isn't generally published elsewhere, as far as I can tell. It needs a reliable source, due to disputes over whether other sites can be used to add the info.

For example, Theo Clarke only has a year of birth on her article. If someone has this book, I can provide a list of the MPs who are missing an exact date of birth, and then add the information with citations if it is provided. I've already done this for a few MPs, via a contact of mine with the book (but who I imagine may be a bit busy to reply to my requests for further dates).

Thanks, TrottieTrue (talk) 18:48, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

  • Theo Clarke's birthday is 4 August 1985 from Companies House, not sure whether that can be a source.--Mike Rohsopht (talk) 17:01, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
  • Thanks Mike Rohsopht. I'm told that Companies House is a "primary source", and therefore not allowed for BLP DOBs - I added a load of month and year DOBs to the articles in question, and the edits got reverted or removed. See my Talk page, and [3]. I personally see no problem with using freely available government records, such as Companies House. I assume you found the exact date for Clarke in the documentation at her CH profile - the Officer page just shows the month and year, but I've been told that the exact date (including day) can often be found by looking at the documents in the company's filing history.
@User:Bruce1ee Thanks for fixing the citation - the way I originally posted it is what the RefToolbar auto-populates the fields with when the book's ISBN is entered.--TrottieTrue (talk) 18:21, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Need sources for two Degrassi books[edit]

I need clippings and page numbers from two books/novels related to the original Degrassi Talks shows.

The first is a novel adaptation of character Christine Nelson (better known as Spike), and it includes expansions on plotlines from the series, such as a further look into the stigma the character experiences as a pregnant teenager. However, while some of the book is available for preview on Google, not all of it is and there is some parts of the book that I feel may be of significance to the article missing. I would like anything in the book to do with the reactions of other characters to Spike's pregnancy, as well as her being removed from school by the PTA/school board with the page numbers.

The second is a non-fiction book based off the series Degrassi Talks, and is hosted by Amanda Stepto, the actress who portrayed Spike. The introduction interview of Stepto is available on the Wayback Machine to quote and cite information from directly, but I prefer to cite the book and not the web page, and I need the page numbers, as well as a hi-res scan of the front cover if possible.

@Melly42, I'm seeing on Worldcat only a few libraries in the US hold this US govt publication, so I'd assume that would mean it's unlikely to be in a German library. Sometimes it's worth trying to contact the authors, but this publication was in 1984. Even if they aren't retired, it's quite likely they never had a digitized version of their work. You might try contacting the National Forest Service Library? —valereee (talk) 12:48, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Sources from newspapers, official charts, and magazines between 1990-2010[edit]

Currently working articles for the following artist: Thalía, Gian Marco, Arena Hash, Christian Meier, Natalia Oreiro, Maricarmen Marín, Chayanne, and Anna Carina. I'm looking for information regarding their albums and songs such as: chart placements, certifications, sales, awards, and reception.

  • Hoping to get information from sources like NewsBank, Oricon, or any other reliable source. If someone could help me with this, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, FanDePopLatino (talk) 04:21, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

@FanDePopLatino: It would be helpful if you could pinpoint specific articles within publications. RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 18:07, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@RandomCanadian: yeah sorry about that. Here are some of the articles:

Gian Marco: A Tiempo, Resucitar, Al Quinto Día, Días Nuevos, Se Me Olvidó, Lamento, 8, Resucitar, No Te Avisa, Desde Adentro, En Vivo Desde El Lunario, also his albums from 1990-1996 and his 2006 greatest hits album so that I can make articles for them

Christian Meier: No Me Acuerdo Quien Fuí, any of his other albums either solo or with Arena Hash and also his song "Carreteras Mojadas"

Natalia Oreiro: Natalia Oreiro, Turmalina, Cambio Dolor, Tu Veneno

Thalía: Thalía's studio albums from 1990-2009 and also the singles from the albums, Greatest Hits, Thalía con banda: Grandes éxitos, Thalía's Hits Remixed

Anna Carina: any of her albums and also her songs from 1998-2016

Maricarmen Marín: any of her solo albums

Arena Hash: any of their albums

Chayanne: any of his albums FanDePopLatino (talk) 19:20, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

@FanDePopLatino: What I meant was that RX is not for someone else to do the searching - it would be best if you instead provide precise citations for sources which you found but do not have access to (or at least, narrow the search by identifying specific issues of magazines or newspapers which talk about your subjects). Look at other requests on this page to see examples. Cheers, RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 19:09, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
@RandomCanadian: oh okay. Sorry about that.

FanDePopLatino (talk) 19:20, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Hey @RandomCanadian:, sorry about everything I wrote before. A friend on Wikipedia just taught me the proper way to make a request. So the information I'm looking for right now is regarding Greatest Hits (Thalía album). On this official website for Oricon it shows that the DVD sold in Japan and entered the charts. I can't see its chart position or sales number because I don't have an account with Oricon or have their sales book. If you or someone you know can find this information for me I would appreciate it. Thanks FanDePopLatino (talk) 04:07, 5 May 2021 (UTC)

"Mathematics for the Multitude?" refs [HathiTrust access via some universities][edit]

  • Price, Michael H. (1994). Mathematics for the Multitude?: A History of the Mathematical Association. Leicester, England: The Association. ISBN 0-906588-32-4. OCLC 1107758409.

Google Books' snippet view ([4]) of the index tells me that pp. 3, 8, 26, 32–33, 113–114, and 265 mention the Modern Language Association and pp. 3, 266 mention the Association for Language Learning. If someone could go to those pages, see which endnotes are being used to cite statements about the Modern Language Association or the Association for Language Learning, and then let me know which references are in those endnotes, I'd be very much appreciative. For instance, I can tell that endnote (10) for p. 3 and endnote (186) for p. 266 both look promising but I don't know what those are.

This book is in HathiTrust ([5]), where various university libraries have full access to the book, including Johns Hopkins, U. of Michigan, Indiana U., U. of Illinois, The Claremont Colleges, and UC Berkeley.

This would be for an article on the Modern Language Association of Great Britain and Ireland -- I'm still in the gathering-sources/confirming notability stages (User:Umimmak/sandbox/MLA).

P.S. I suspect that this book itself doesn't have too much to say about the Modern Language Association, hence just asking for its references, but if you happen to notice that any of these pages actually do go into any detail, I'd be grateful for letting me know which pages I should focus on for an ILL or even better if you could screenshot/download/scan those specific pages as well.

Reliable sources for climate/temperature in Ethiopian cities for example the city of Gondar.[edit]

I'm looking for reliable climate data for Gondar city article and other Ethiopian cities. i already worked on the article, and saw a outdated German data that applied for the entire province of Gondar, instead of just the city. I replaced it with a source from Climate-data.org >> [1]. Hoewever i want to make sure that it was reliable source i posted it here. >>>> [2] The site turns out to be a collection of data from EMCWF, i searched to no avail, wondering if they even have african/ethiopian climate data.

So my question is whether someone can get or has acces to http://www.ecmwf.int/ climate data, or another reliable source for Ethiopian (cities) climate data? If this is too broad, i narrow it to daily mean temperatures each month, and yearly average in celsius, average rainfall, and Köppen-Geiger climate classification system.

Störm, What is the evidence that this is a reliable source? Cambridge Scholars Publishing is effectively self-publishing as far as editing and fact-checking go, so Eftekhar would need to meet WP:SPS for this to be admissible as a reliable source. (t · c) buidhe 05:29, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
Perhaps they meet WP:SPS point "Self-published expert sources may be considered reliable when produced by an established subject-matter expert, whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable, independent publications." as they were awarded PhD on the subject by the University of York (link:http://etheses.whiterose.ac.uk/4552/) and is the best available source in English-language which discusses the subject in detail.

Book access for article on Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 31[edit]

For Piano Sonata No. 31 (Beethoven) (I only need the pages pertaining to the sonata, but I'm not sure what they are; I need access in order to add page number attributions to the article)

Thanks, GeneralPoxter (talkcontribs) 00:51, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Kandahar Newsletter 1891[edit]

For article Demographics of Afghanistan need a source Kandahar Newsletter, 10 August 1891, IOR L/P & S/7/63/1295: The popu­lation of the city of Qandahār was even counted three times, in 1305/1887 (Kandahar Newsletter, 7 October 1887, IOR L/P & S/7/51/789), 1309/1891 (Kandahar Newsletter, 10 August 1891, IOR L/P & S/7/63/1295), and 1315/1898 (Kandahar Newsletter, 7 January 1898, NAT Foreign Department, Secret F, February 1898, 1304). Such repetition after short intervals is an indi­cator of the poor quality of these early enumerations, which were conducted primarily by ḥākems (governors), qāżīs (judges), ʿolamāʾ, and mollās; Kakar, p. 182). Despite the amir’s efforts to achieve national coverage, many regions remained outside the scope of operations (Kabul Newsletter, 13 May, 1891, IOR L/P & S/7/63/299). Furthermore, as the only result that is still extant is that of the 1309/1891 census of Qandahār, the intense activity generated by ʿAbd-al-Raḥmān Khan’s policy contributed very little overall to the demographic history of Afghanistan. I wanted to use the results of this census.
