Finding a source

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

  • 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.

@Slightlymad: I have access to the first book – which pages do you need? —Bruce1eetalk 12:38, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

  • @Slightlymad, are you still waiting on the DVD booklet or is this resolved? Have you tried your local library and its library network for the DVD? If not, reference can probably get it for you. czar 19:27, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
  • @Czar: I tried all of these suggestions you have given but it's nowhere to be found. So yea, still waiting for it. Can you help? Slightlymad 04:54, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
@Slightlymad, I have the collector's edition in hand. It has no booklet but includes director's audio commentary, video interviews with actors, making-of documentary, and short films with the Director of Photography, editor, driving stunt performers. I'll see if I can find the 1997 edition. czar 22:54, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Orochimaru (Naruto)

As anybody who knows of Japanese mythology, Orochimaru's character represents a lot about stories. I managed to find information about how he is related to the Kusanagi sword and the famous Yamata no Orochi in Google books. However, I have not been able to find anything about where he comes from to add more creation information to the article. Anybody knows of sites that might contain this type of information? Cheers.Tintor2 (talk) 23:38, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Tintor2, I don't think this request is on the right page. This page is for when you know what source you need, but don't have access to it, and other people might. When you are trying to find out what source you can use to learn about some topic, try the Wikipedia:Reference desk. – b_jonas 12:14, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
@B jonas: Actually the instructions at the top of this page do state that "A request may be an open question or you may ask for a specific journal, article or work". 2601:644:1:B7CB:44D2:D1A7:14DD:E76 (talk) 21:47, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

James Craven

A new editor has been persistently editing James Craven (American actor) to insert and reinsert unsourced information that contradicts the article's only existing source, such as that he was born in Canada rather than Pennsylvania and that he died about 20 years later than claimed — and their only "source" for the changed information is "I knew him" (which isn't convincing if we can't prove that who the editor really knew isn't some other person who merely happened to have the same name). But conversely, the article's only existing source is his IMDb profile, which isn't considered a reliable source either because it can also contain errors.

I've protected the article for the time being, but since the vast majority of his roles listed in the IMDb profile seem to be minor supporting roles and/or entirely uncredited appearances as unnamed characters, it's not even clear that he would pass WP:NACTOR at all — but a proper WP:BEFORE test would require checking American media of the 1940s and 1950s, whereas I only have access to Canadian newspaper databases for that era (in which I've found nothing at all.) So could somebody with historical US newspaper access (probably any database with a reasonably broad range of publications would work) run a sourcing check to see if the article's an WP:AFD candidate or not? Thanks. Bearcat (talk) 15:07, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

I don't have ready access to the full text, but this looks worth seeking out: Seymour, Blackie (2010). "Names to Faces". Films of the Golden Age. No. 63. pp. 80–85. ISSN 1083-5369.  Abstract: This article offers a list of little-known character actors who were featured during Hollywood's Golden Age. It looks at the life and career of Arthur Edmund Carewe, who appeared in both silent and sound films such as "Phantom of the Opera," "The Matrimonial Bed," and "Captain Applejack." It then focuses on James Craven, who was notable for portraying in serials such as "The Green Archer," "Captain Midnight," and "The Purple Monster Strikes." The article then shows a short biography of Robert Frazer, who starred in "The Holy City," and "The Drake Case." --Worldbruce (talk) 21:49, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

Need help finding an article

I need some help finding an article. Basically, I don't remember what this article is called or the newspaper (or journal) that it was from, but I am pretty sure that it was written sometime between 1903 and 1915 (Yes, somewhere between those specific years) and talked about the possibility of a U.S. acquisition of one of the main islands in the Danish West Indies while leaving the rest of these islands to Denmark. Can anyone find this article?

Indeed, I want to add this information to this specific Wikipedia article: Treaty of the Danish West Indies. Futurist110 (talk) 00:54, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

A quick look at ProQuest Historical Newspapers does not immediately find any discussions during this period of the Danish West Indies being split up. Of course, it's entirely plausible that someone made the suggestion at some point, but if so, it doesn't seem to have received much attention. John M Baker (talk) 14:15, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Korean language research assistance

2014 National Security Agency illegal seizure I'm trying to improve this article. Almost all sources currently are Liberian but the a group of South Koreans are key to the event. Can anyone Google in Korean to see if there are any Korean sources of information?

Also would anyone support creating an entirely new help desk just for language assistance? To illustrate how this is helpful: In this instance if there was a list of participants and a few listed Korean ability, I could just directly ask Korean capable volunteers to help with this task.

Sources for James Thrower

Anything at all. Newspaper archives? Book reviews? Obituaries? James Thrower seems like a notable person and wrote a lot of books which are still referred to. When (exactly) and where was he born? What did he do during his early life? When (exactly) and how did he die? Anything else interesting. --John (talk) 17:29, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

John, I might take a further look later, but here are some places to start:
1999 book is dedicated to "my daughter Annabel"
Married to Judith
More dedications, apparently to his children
Haven't found an obit, and a brief look through proquest historical newspapers and didn't turn up anything. His various works might contain some biographical info, and finding a middle name (initial seems to have been "A") would help. --Usernameunique (talk) 17:54, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, that's a fantastic start. I think I can add the wife and daughters. --John (talk) 18:34, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
John, here's more. Full name is James Arthur Thrower (see first link).
Ph.D. in 1981 from Aberdeen, dissertation entitled "Marxist-Leninist 'Scientific Atheism' and the Study of Religion and Atheism in the USSR Today". Published in 1983, here's a review.
Bio, gives some more places he taught (and should help in ordering them) and a list of works (confirming that the above Ph.D. is his).
First Amazon review gives some more places he taught. Not sure if it's from a bio with the work, or if the review is by someone who knew something about him, but at least gives some more search terms to try.
"About the Author" from one of his books, includes visiting lecturer appointments
Various letters to the editor. One of them mentions returning from "a cultural visit to Libya" where he met Muammar Gaddafi and others: 1 (note his own Durham->Oxford path), 2, 3 (a colleague responded to that one)
Review of one of his works
Preface to one of his works gives the name of a grandson (Liam David James MacDonald), and, interestingly, is dated December 1999.
Much of that was discovered by searching for 'James Thrower Ghana'. It would be worth searching using other terms (e.g., 'James Thrower Leningrad,' 'James Thrower Libya,' or 'James Arthur Thrower'). You would probably also glean more information by putting a list of his works together. Especially if he published before the 1970s, the bylines would give a better sense of his movements. The snippet view of the introduction of his posthumous 2004 work also suggests it may contain some more information (as may the introduction by Malise Ruthven). --Usernameunique (talk) 19:43, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Thanks again for the legwork. I can't access the galegroup links unfortunately. I already have the bio from the dictionary on the article. Bits there I can use. I have emailed the Aberdeen Press and Journal to see if they are willing to help; he would undoubtedly have merited an obituary there. --John (talk) 19:56, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
John, no problem. Email me and I'll send you the galegroup items. --Usernameunique (talk) 20:00, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Benjaminikuta, don't have access to this, but here are the websites of two of the authors (Katherine Noel, the third author, was an MBA student). Perhaps you could touch base with them and ask for a copy? If they know what it's for (Wikipedia), they may be happy to help—it's in their interests as well, as it makes their works more widely cited.

Two articles for Just-in-time manufacturing and Lean manufacturing

Greetings! I am about to improve the articles on Just-in-time manufacturing and Lean manufacturing, but I don't have access to the following two sources. I hope the good people of Wikipedia could help me with this one, as some of the users have wider access to scientific article databases. Your help would be GREATLY appreciated! Good day! :-)

--Jayaguru-Shishya (talk) 13:38, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

I have not had success finding them myself, but... is this the author of the two remaining publications? They seem to at least have very related research interests, and are listed as working at Chalmers University of Technology.
I've been impressed with the success rate of requesting full-text publications of authors directly via Research Gate. You may consider doing so if you have an account, and mentioning your use of the publications. I find it hard to believe any researcher would not want more citations, especially in something as widely used as Wikipedia :-) = paul2520 (talk) 17:22, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Thank you in advanc. વિકાસ કૈલા (talk) 09:07, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
I can get access to this book in a little over a week. But the library's terms of use don't allow me to scan more than a single chapter (the index doesn't count). Vikas, which chapter do you need, or would you rather first see the index so that you can decide? – Uanfala 22:12, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Ohk. Uanfala. Send me the first chapter from it. Thank you very much. વિકાસ કૈલા (talk) 06:02, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

First two chapters?

of Cecily Duchess of York, ISBN 1474272258, by Pat Laynesmith. Pub. Bloomsbury this year. Possibly too new d'you think? If not, and anyone can oblige, I'd be most appreciative. Cheers! Many thanks to all. — fortunavelut lunaRarely receiving (many) pings. Bizarre. 15:31, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

@Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi: Most of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 can be seen here on Google Books. The only pages that are missing are: 16-17 for chapter 1 and 23-24, 30-31 for chapter 2. Also the author's first name is J.L. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:31, 18 November 2017 (UTC)
Great thanks User:MrLinkinPark333, so all I need is six missing pages. Much more manageable :) hopefully. — fortunavelut lunaRarely receiving (many) pings. Bizarre. 10:16, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Request for biography of Camilla Mickwitz

Hello, I am writing an English article about Camilla Mickwitz. She has a Finnish article at [2]. One of citations that used is:

Aarnio, Ansa: Mickwitz, Camilla (1937–1989) Kansallisbiografia-verkkojulkaisu (maksullinen). 9.10.2015. Helsinki: Suomalaisen Kirjallisuuden Seura.

Unfortunately, this article at [3] costs 2€, and is the most in depth article about her that I could find. If anyone can find a free version, or an equivalent biography, it would be most appreciated.

Thanks, Toreightyone (talk) 00:13, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Two more chapters?

Me again. Not the same as above. Terribly greedy of me I know. This, Studies in London history, eds. Hollaender, A.E.J. & Kellaway, W. (London, 1969), ISBN: 0340108363, holds chapters 8 and 9 (Coleman and Barron respectively), which would be immensely useful for on-going pre-WP:FAR work at Nicholas Exton, per a peer review here. Any help gratefully received! Cheers, — fortunavelut lunaRarely receiving (many) pings. Bizarre. 18:52, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
