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.

Anyone here with Stanford SUNet ID access?Edit

I'd like to have a look into a certain Soviet article on the matter of Baruch Spinoza#History of reception. It can be found via on the pages 94—103. Any member of the Stanford University (or other person with a SUNet ID) could request the article as a PDF via that web page. Please enter Fadeev, Fišgalov as the authors into the Stanford's request form, Koncepciâ idealʹnogo gosudarstva v politikopravovom učenii B. Spinozy as the title and 94—103, index as the requested pages. My e-mail is Thanks in advance! --eugrus (talk) 12:58, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

@Eugrus: If nobody is able to provide this, you might consider scouring Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Stanford University and asking anyone who edits somewhat regularly. The category includes both current and former students (former students probably don't have access), but writing one message and pasting it some number of times shouldn't take too terribly long, and it is probably more likely to succeed than only requesting here.

Eugrus, (1) There are various institutions worldwide that hold copies of this work. (2) Many university libraries have some sort of scan-to-pdf service for their members. That doesn't mean they already have an electronic copy, it means someone has to physically make the copy from the original. (That is different from the situation where, say, an institution provides an electronic copy of a thesis submitted to that institution that is only accessible to its members and inaccessible to anybody else in the world.) (3) Essentially, by your logic ("notifying everyone with that alma mater"), we could ping thousands of users on any given day since they are/used to be affiliated with institutions that hold a copy of a requested work. I doubt that is a desirable use of this page. — Pajz (talk) 20:57, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Beacham's Guide to Literature for Young Adults entryEdit

Hello. I'm looking for the entry on Audrey Couloumbis in this encylopedia:

Unfortunately, I don't have a page number as I'm basing it on here and here. This is also an educated guess as well, as the above links don't specify it either. If anyone can find this, it's a bonus. Thanks! MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:57, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

Masterman, Lucy (1939). C. F. G. Masterman. London: Nicholson and Watson. p. 345-346Edit

  • Masterman, Lucy (1939). C. F. G. Masterman. London: Nicholson and Watson. p. 345–346.

For David Lloyd George and Charles Masterman, and possibly others. I need to verify the quotation "When Lloyd George came back to the party, ideas came back to the party", and clarify if this was written or said, and if possible get a date for it. I would also like to check if the publisher is given as "Nicholson and Watson" or as "Ivor Nicholson and Watson".

Thanks, DuncanHill (talk) 13:12, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

The book Modern Wales: Politics, Places and People by Kenneth O. Morgan states that Masterman wrote it to his wife in 1926.[4] I also found a number of history books giving a longer version: "I've fought him as hard as anyone, but I have to confess, when Lloyd George[...]". In Gbooks snippet view of the 1968 reprint of the Lucy Masterman book, the visible portion reads me, "but I have to confess, when Lloyd George[...]". I wasn't able to directly verify that the "I've fought him" portion was there. (My guess is that an OCR error was preventing it from showing up in search results). Cheers, gnu57 16:03, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
@DuncanHill: In terms of the publisher, both worldcat and Trove say Nicholson and Watson. But this could easily be reconfirmed once the quote is confirmed. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:03, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks both, that is helpful but I will leave this open in case someone can resolve it positively. I think I'll have to keep an eye out for a copy of the book! DuncanHill (talk) 17:01, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

The goat tower at Cholmondeley CastleEdit

So there's this goat tower at Cholmondeley Castle, and the photo of it we have:

looks like it could easily be forty+ years old, which means it would be the second goat tower built. There's nothing on the current website for Cholomondeley Castle about it at all, as far as I can tell, which is another reason I think it might predate most of the other goat towers, as goat towers have become a viral meme in the past ten years and if it was a recent addition I think they'd be using it in their marketing as the only frickin' goat tower in the UK, but the closest I find is a 1999 photograph and a 2010 brochure where they mention it and call it 'unique'. Can anyone find a mention of when it was built? Or mentions of it at all earlier than 1981? Thanks for any help! --valereee (talk) 19:18, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

@Valereee: The only thing we do here at the Resource Exchange is procure copies of sources. You'd be better off asking this question at the Research Desk. Then, if they suggest a source you don't have access to, you can come back here and request it. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:49, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
Except the research desk is probably dead. Nevermind. I mean, you should ask there (it would be good to find out for sure), but I guess you're most likely to get a helpful response here, and then maybe at the reference desk. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:53, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
Compassionate727, I'll try the Reference Desk, thanks! ----valereee (talk) 16:47, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
@Valereee: I didn't find anything related to the goat tower, although I did find a couple of sources that seem like they might be useful if you want to expand the article's coverage of other aspects:
I can send you the JSTOR article if you email me. Compassionate727 (T·C) 17:55, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Wāqwāq (manga) volume 4 endnotesEdit

I'm not sure if it's beyond your scope, but I'd like to have access to the endnotes of Wāqwāq manga's fourth volume. They are mentioned by Anime News Network's Carlo Santos and apparently have some commentary on the drawing/writing process of the work. It would be helpful to write a "Production" section, which is the only thing it's lacking for a GAN. Thanks, Gabriel Yuji (talk) 20:04, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Perle et al. 1999Edit

Greetings guys, my request here is the description of Achillobator. I have been looking for this particular paper/book? in a digital version, in order to make an updated skeletal reconstruction for its page, but apparently there's almost no images of it on internet—very obscure if you ask me. I have been able to figure a few elements of the holotype, however, from a different paper and book. The page for Achillobator is pretty much complete, but there few issues/concerns about the original measurements and other data which I think would be great to clarify.

Much appreciated. PaleoNeolitic (talk) 03:05, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

Politiken article about Winston SterzelEdit

In this 21 July 2019 edit request for Winston Sterzel, an editor noted that Sterzel is living in the United States. This keeps getting added to the article and then reverted. See this 5 December 2019 addition to the article and the revert for the latest instances.

The Google Translate of the restricted access view of the Danish-language article notes:

First, they were hailed for showing China. When the videos became critical, they were hated, but refused to give up. But then China's ultranationalist Internet army threw itself on their wives and relatives, and it became too much for Winston Sterzel and Matthew Tye.

“They found out everything they could about my wife using the Internet. Then they accused her of being a spy and a threat to national security. And because she loved foreigners like me more than she loved China '.

The words came from 38-year-old Winston Sterzel. He is one of two main characters in a story that is as contradictory as it ends up deeply serious for two families who have to pack all their stuff together and move from the land they hitherto called home.

It is possible that this article provides further background information about where Winston Sterzel is currently living as well as further biographical information that can be used to expand the article.

Question of history: 1939 Standard E1 typeEdit

Copy of the quesion in the Wikipedia:Reference desk/Science:

During WWII, from 1939 to 1945, Wilhelm Gutbrod produced in his Standard Fahrzeugfabrik, the freight three-wheeler type E1. According to forum entries, the design changed from a RR-layout to a FF chain-driven front wheel, like Oscar Vidal & Sons Tempo company did on their vehicles. As the forum user also "renewed" the nameplate, I really get doubt about the design change. [5] As I don't get access to the book, or similar, I would like to ask, is there a reliable book source, confirming this change. --Hans Haase (有问题吗) 11:26, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

Thx, at the moment I am not sure if the book really has information about and further research leaded me o the word "Einheits-Dreirad-Lieferwagen" as meaning of a design-standardisized three-wheeler delivery-vehilce. These innovation minimizing plans remembers to an unique design-standardisized truck, like Borgward produced, also Opel, a later GM subsidiary.

I'm not sure if four holdings in (academic/reasearch/state) libraries - from what I can see - qualifies as "commonly held". Anyway, it happens to be available where I live but only in a library that I do not frequent. If the material isn't available outside of Germany, maybe the requesting user can take their request to de:WP:BIBA? Alternatively, feel free to let me know me later this year if the request is not yet being worked on at that point. I expect to have a chance some time around New Year's (ie, week 1) to visit the library. — Pajz (talk) 19:54, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

@FunkMonk: #2 doesn't list a date anywhere (which is unusual) and is included in "Future Issues" sections, so I don't think it has been published yet. I do have access to this journal, so check back whenever it is published and I'll be happy to get it for you. Compassionate727 (T·C) 15:44, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
Thanks both! Yeah, it's also the first time I've requested a magazine article, and it's also rather unusual that original dinosaur research is published in such rather than in "real" scientific journals". As for the perhaps unpublished paper, I was notified of it on a palaeontology mailing list, and the dinosaur it is about, Giganotosaurus, is a featured article, so I was thinking it would be best to keep it up to date every time something new about it is published. FunkMonk (talk) 15:48, 8 December 2019 (UTC)
It's not that unusual. Many journals have a section on their site for articles that will be published in a future issue. The text is already available (often already in its final version) but, since the issue as a whole hasn't been published, the article does not have the final layout / page numbers / a publication date etc. As these versions are only provided on the publisher's site, not on third-party aggregator platforms, they are frequently not available through university libraries unless it's a major publisher. Oftentimes, though, there are a few universities/libraries around that, for some reason, have directly licensed from the publisher. — Pajz (talk) 20:29, 10 December 2019 (UTC)
I will get back when I know it's out. In the meantime, I've listed another paper I can't find. FunkMonk (talk) 03:11, 22 December 2019 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR: To clarify, the 1965 George Allen & Unwin (London) edition and the 1966 Doubleday (New York) edition are both translated by Reginald Spink. The Gauguins Sönderhavsår mentioned above is the Swedish title of the book, not a different translator. George Allen & Unwin had an Australian subsidiary at Crows Nest, New South Wales, but not until 1976, so I can't square the requested 1965 year with the requested Australian place of publication. Going by Google snippets, there's no obvious difference in the U.K. and U.S. editions other than pagination and spelling (annexe vs. annex, for instance), so it might help you get what you need if you elaborated on how you compared them and why your comparison found them dissimilar. --Worldbruce (talk) 20:13, 10 January 2020 (UTC)

@Jo-Jo Eumerus: This book is in the public domain. If, in Switzerland, you don't see an "E-Book Lesen", "Kostenlos", or similar button, use the link at the bottom of the page to report the problem to Google Books. The author, Wolfgang Sartorius von Walterschausen, died in 1876, so copyright in Switzerland ran to 1926 (author's death + 50 years) or perhaps 1936 (editor Arnold von Lasaulx's death + 50 years).

Request for extracts from Tusa and Royal's recent book on artefacts from the site of the Battle of the AegatesEdit

There is a recently published book:

  • Royal, Jeffrey G.; Tusa, Sebastiano, eds. (2019). The Site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the End of the First Punic War. Fieldwork, Analyses and Perspectives, 2005–2015. Bibliotheca Archaeologica. 60. Rome: L'Erma di Bretschneider. ISBN 9788891318329.

From this I would like the six pages of:

  • Tusa, S; Goold, J (2019). "Archaeological finds as true evidences of the Egadi battle". In Royal, Jeffrey G.; Tusa, Sebastiano (eds.). The Site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the End of the First Punic War. Fieldwork, Analyses and Perspectives, 2005–2015. Bibliotheca Archaeologica. 60. Rome: L'Erma di Bretschneider. pp. 13–18. ISBN 9788891318329.

and the chapter:

  • Murray, William (2019). "The warships: construction and tactics". In Royal, Jeffrey G.; Tusa, Sebastiano (eds.). The Site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the End of the First Punic War. Fieldwork, Analyses and Perspectives, 2005–2015. Bibliotheca Archaeologica. 60. Rome: L'Erma di Bretschneider. pp. 253–290. ISBN 9788891318329.

for Battle of the Aegates, which I am working up for a FAC.

Many thanks, Gog the Mild (talk) 12:53, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Right now it looks like there is only one library holding of this book (OCLC 1012608445 and OCLC 1108887480). That will make it hard for RXers to find. buidhe 13:35, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Ah. That would explain my difficulties in tracking it down. There is a preview of the 2019 edition here including the title page, if that helps. Gog the Mild (talk) 14:03, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Couple of pagesEdit

A bit of a two-parter this one I'm afraid. Part the first: Can anyone identify this

Broken Covenants: Violations of International Law in Northern Ireland Report of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Assembly, 6-8 April 1992, London. @ Worldcat here, OCLC 59989435

The fact that it's from the 1990s but only has an OCLC makes me wonder if is actually a published book or an internal report. Secondly, if it is available to anyone, pp. 35 and 229 (and environs, I guess) appear to mention Dominic McGlinchy. Can this be ascertained?

Sorry to be a pain! Hope someone can help. Cheers! ——SN54129 18:32, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

That OCLC says it has 128 pages. If the desired book is ISBN 978-0-946088-40-9, it has 245 pages, which would make scanning pages 35 and 229 easier. this Google snippet view shows the mentions of Dominic. --Worldbruce (talk) 19:15, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Several ODNB articlesEdit

In order to wrap up an old WP:CCI (there's a couple that primarily use that source which I don't have access to), I'm going to request a handful of Oxford Dictionary of National Biography articles to check for any copyright issues.

Too bad ODNB isn't PD like DNB is that'd save me so much time on this.
