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 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 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.

New requests[edit]

March 2020[edit]


I started a stub article on the novel Takeoff! including the one source that I had, and based on the ISFDB link for this novel[1] there are reviews in at least the following:

  1. Review by Spider Robinson (1980) in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact, August 1980
  2. Review by Tom Easton (1980) in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact, October 1980
  3. Review by Baird Searles (1980) in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, November 1980
  4. Review by Steve Brown (1980) in Thrust, #15, Summer 1980
  5. Review by Tom Staicar (1981) in Amazing Stories, May 1981
  6. Review by Donald M. Hassler (1986) in Fantasy Review, October 1986

If anyone can find copies of any of those reviews, to either provide me with a copy or to add information directly to the article if interested, that would be appreciated! :) BOZ (talk) 14:29, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

@BOZ: #4 (Thrust #15, Summer 1980) is available online at the Internet Archive (see page 44). —Bruce1eetalk 17:25, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
@BOZ: Archives of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine issues can be found here while Amazing Stories are here. While Analog Science Fiction is here, 1980 is not covered. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:05, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
@Neopeius and Mike Christie: Do either of you have the above sources, or different sources that would help with the article? Kees08 (Talk) 16:27, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Bruce1ee and MrLinkinPark333, I added something from those three reviews to the article. :) BOZ (talk) 20:54, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, BOZ and Kees08, not sure how I missed this ping -- I only noticed it because I was on this page looking for something else. I've checked and I do still have the two 1980 Analog issues, but they're in a box somewhere in the basement and I've no idea which one. I'll try to remember to let you know when they eventually come out, probably later this year. I don't have any copies of Fantasy Review, and a quick look through my references finds nothing. According to Google Books there's a short review in Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Review Annual 1988, edited by Latham and Collins.

The History of Morgantown, Oktibbeha County, MS[edit]

  • Landrum, Allye Morgan (1976). "History of Morgantown". Mississippi State University: University Libraries. Cite journal requires |journal= (help)

For Morgantown, Oktibbeha County, Mississippi

Looking for the full paper (a summarized version found here). Physical copy held at Mississippi State's library, but was hoping someone might have digital access.

For Morgantown. Specifically the ones in Mississippi (there are three of them!). Trying to de-tangle some of the overlap in the histories of these places- where editors were mistaking one town for another and vice-versa- but sources are scarce, as these are extremely rural, unincorporated places.

Contents page[edit]

I wonder, is this possible? The contents page from

Steele, Beverley A. Grenada: A History of Its People (Macmillan Caribbean, 2003): ISBN 978-0-33393-053-3

would be extremely useful wrt ongoing work on Fédon's rebellion; be warned if anyone can help I might want a chapter from it :) But also in the understanding that that may not be possible. Take care all! serial # 12:12, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

@Serial Number 54129: The Open Library has a table of contents (without page numbers) here. —Bruce1eetalk 13:30, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 11:57, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi Mike, The publisher, Archaeology South-East, is part of UCL, and they have been active at Whitehawk, so it's possibly a paper they put out (although oddly it's not listed as being in their library - although if you log in as a student more results may appear). They have a general email address ([email protected]), so it may be worth dropping them a line to see if they have any more details. Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 13:11, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
ps. Alternatively, it was written by Miles Russell - his contact details are on his profile page. Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 13:19, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
I've emailed Dr. Russell, since I think that would be quicker, if he's inclined to help. I'll scratch this off here if he replies with a copy. Thanks! Mike Christie (talk - contribs - library) 14:49, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

page 194 of 香港利氏家族史 (Chinese version of Profit, victory & sharpness : the Lees of Hong Kong by Vivienne Poy, published by University of Hong Kong Press)[edit]

For Hong Kong Japanese School - I want to find the Chinese name of the "Ling Ying Building" (where the Japanese school was first located) but Google Books will not allow me to view page 194, which I believe should have the Chinese characters for that.

Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 16:34, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: it might refer to zh:嶺英中學. Searching Ling Ying in led to me an article LING YING SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY on Hong Kong Daily Press, 1939-06-02, which said the school had premises in the Lee Gardens (利園), which is exactly Lee family's properties. The zhwiki article says the school was closed in 1970. I guess its premises were used for the Japanese school then.
You should verify this with better sources or alumni from that period.--Roy17 (talk) 17:36, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
@Roy17: I'm not in the HK region right now, but I'm checking online sources. zh:香港日本人學校 already states "1971年(昭和46年)4月12日 - 學生人數増加,要借附近的嶺英校舍,一部(幼稚園部、小學1、2年)到該處上課。同年5月10日,設立香港日本人學校新校舍建設準備委員會。" so that seems to be the right track. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:39, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Would be nice if someone with access could add a better version of this photograph at Shyamal (talk) 06:38, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Maxwell-Lefroy, H. (1916). "The control of flies and vermin in Mesopotamia". The Agricultural Journal of India. 11 (4): 323–331.
Internet Archive has a bad scan, so no luck there. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:02, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
It seems questionable that the quality of a photograph in a 1916 Indian journal would be to be that much higher than what we already have. While it is of course a possibility, for many journals from that time and provenance that Commons copy would be a perfectly accurate representation of how their pictures looked in print ... — Pajz (talk) 07:29, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

New Zealand newspaper articles (1990s-2000s)[edit]

Hello. I'm looking for these New Zealand sources for an upcoming article on Joan Harnett former netball player turned real estate agent:

  • "Netballer Joan Harnett-Kindley". Christchurch Star. 17 March 2004. p. A1.

These are all found in these search results here. As there's many of them, I picked the ones that I thought might be helpful for her post-netball career. Thanks! MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 02:56, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Pliosaurid papers[edit]

Two Donkey Kong Country reviews[edit]

Hi! For Donkey Kong Country, I'd like to see the reviews Diehard GameFan and Game Informer wrote. They're in the December and November 1994 issue, respectively and hopefully the information I provided above is enough. Thanks! JOEBRO64 01:45, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

Encyclopaedia Iranica, Volume: XVI/5[edit]

Numerous articles.

Thanks, - LouisAragon (talk) 17:22, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

@LouisAragon: I assume you've tried looking for the articles here and didn't find them? RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 02:51, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
(1) Is the URL supposed to imply that it is available electronically? If so, I don't find any indication that it is. (And it would surprise me a bit if it were. Brill has a reference collection that is continuously updated, but that title doesn't seem to be part of it; the older entries are available on anyway. And it has an e-book collection, but I've never seen them - or, in fact, other publishers of similar works - offer individual fascicles before the volume is completed.) (2) The pages that you request are the entire fascicle (entries "Khavaran-Nama" through "Khomeini"). Therefore, fulfilling the request is difficult on legal grounds. As far as I'm concerned, I cannot copy the fascicle in its entirety, but if you can narrow down the request to a few specific entries (list of entries) and/or a smaller page range - say, half of it or less -, that is something I would likely be able to supply. Obviously you can also wait and see if someone else can help you obtain the entire document. — Pajz (talk) 18:18, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
@RandomCanadian: Yep I did. Iranica Online hasn't updated their online database for a very long time. @Pajz: That'd be great. I'd like:
  • "Khomeini, Ruhollah Musavi" by Hamid Algar
  • "Kholosi", by Erik Anonby, Hassan Mohebbi Bahmani, Maryam Nourzaei, and Mortaza Taheri-Ardali
  • "Khazars", by Dan D. Y. Shapira
  • "Khayyam i. Life", by Ḥosayn Maʿṣumi Hamadāni and EIr
  • "Khazarvān", by EIr
  • "Khiva", by Yuri Bregel and Paolo Sartori
From the October 2018 Fasc:
  • "Khademi, Ali Mohammad", by Chapour Rassekh

Doing... (probably on Wednesday due to Covid-related access restrictions on the collection). — Pajz (talk) 16:54, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
LouisAragon, apologies for the delay. I checked both libraries around here that subscribe to the Encyclopaedia. Unfortunately, despite a catalogue entry suggesting the contrary, both of them are yet to receive fascicle 5. I have sent you the entry from fascicle 4, but cannot help with the other articles at this time. Best, — Pajz (talk) 10:53, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, Gleeanon409 (talk) 02:34, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Gleeanon409, sent #2, #3 (it's not a monograph but an edited volume; the one hit on p 168 is from an article by Capino, see table of contents). As a side-note, if you see that an index shows a few-pages span, it would generally be helpful if you could give us that page range ;). As to #4, I can access the printed volume next week, but am not sure what you'd like me to do. You write that you don't know what's in there, but presumably something prompted you to request it ... Do you have a page? Do you expect a mention in the index? — Pajz (talk) 01:10, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
@Pajz:, thank you!
For #4, I’m hoping either “John Duffy” and/or “jd Slater” will pop result(s) but google books gave only that “something” was there. He came of age in nyc and was a model, porn actor so pier sex is in line. Gleeanon409 (talk) 05:28, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

@Gleeanon409: As a matter of best practice, I don't think it is a good idea to extend threads ad infinitum with new requests, and would suggest instead that you create a new section once you realise at a later point that you need additional material from other works as well. Thanks. --Gazal world (talk) 11:16, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, the article is at AFD so I’m trying to find some reasonably strong sources to keep it from being deleted.

Hello guys, looking for particular reviews from some old game magazines. I'm writing an article about Worms 1995 video game from scratch in the Russian Wikipedia (it is going to replace the existing stub and become featured). I'm able to find most of the reviews online, but some are unavailable, like this one. Maybe I will add more articles from other magazines to my request some time later or will create a new request if this one will be archived by that time, but for now it's just what you see.

It's so refreshing![edit]

Hi guys, I'm resurrecting ye olden text citations. I'm a newbie to Wikipedia Library still.

  • Ricciardi, John. "Still Super After All These Years." Electronic Gaming Monthly 14.9 (2001): 126. Business Source Complete. Web. July 23, 2013.

I can't find Electronic Gaming Monthly at all or full Forbes (only the abstract) in EBSCO or ProQuest though those citations say they were in Business Source Complete in 2013. That's EBSCO, right? Did they leave EBSCO? Thanks! — Smuckola(talk) 06:37, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

@Smuckola: I have access to the third article (from my university ProQuest account). Please Wikimail me and I'll send it to you. —Bruce1eetalk 06:47, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
(Edit conflict:) Smuckola, I've sent you #3 from EBSCO. I can likewise not find the Electronic Gaming Monthly in EBSCO. I don't know if it's vanished from all bundles but I also noticed some discrepancy to our local library catalogue (which states that our EBSCO subscription extends to Electronic Gaming Monthly, issues 2000-12-01 - 2009-01-01), so that may indicate that indeed something changed on EBSCO's part. — Pajz (talk) 06:55, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
@Bruce1ee: thanks anyway, I got #3 from Pajz. @Pajz: Oh my goodness, are you telling me that there are different entire sets of publications in each bundle in different institutions' subscriptions to EBSCO? They bounce publications around between collections like Netflix versus HBO versus Starz, or Hulu versus Hulu Plus versus Live TV? That stinks. So does WP:LIBRARY have no EGM and only abstracts of Forbes? Or is it possible that they're duplicated in other collections within the multiverse of Wikipedia Library? I mean I don't even know how to search where to search within WP:LIBRARY. If not, this just makes us cite the third party master search engines like Internet Archive or fansites of magazine scans. Oh well, they can't take those away. I just care that I can make a permanent and free-of-charge accessible citation. Thank you so much for #3 at least, because I do need to read these myself for expanding the Wikipedia articles! — Smuckola(talk) 10:53, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

@Smuckola: in theory I have online access to the first two, but I'm having issues with the database so I've emailed my librarian and hopefully I can get a response. At the very least once COVID is over I'll have access to the print volumes. (P.S. You might want to consider striking out the third request if you've received a copy already just to make things clearer to other editors.) Umimmak (talk) 14:40, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

Reference supporting a statement about the addition of polynomials[edit]

I am struggling to find a reference for a basic statement about the addition of polynomials. It's for this article: Polynomials. While it's trivial to find references supporting the claim that the set of polynomials is closed under the operation of addition, some editors (including myself) would like to see if we could construct a statement that can be referenced without the word "closed". The current wording is:

a sum of polynomials is always another polynomial.

Proposed alternative wording includes:

the addition of polynomials is an operation that takes any two polynomials and produce always another polynomial

The suggestion has been made that this source is worth reviewing:

I see that it exists in Google books but in very limited snippet view. Can I persuade someone to take a look and see if either of the phrases linked above or something similar could be referenced in this book?

For Polynomials
