Finding a source[edit]

Tips for finding a source yourself
  • Request the author(s) of research papers for a copy of their paper by email
  • Check on Google Books, or your local library may be able to obtain it through an interlibrary loan
  • Search Google Scholar for archived copies of journals in institutional repositories
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 handle full book scans
  • 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.
  • If you are requesting multiple sources, #number them (1, 2, 3..)
  • Once a request has been fulfilled add the {{Resolved}} template.
  • Filled requests are archived.
  • Requests unfilled after 3 months will be moved to the stale requests page

Fulfilling a request[edit]

  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests.
  • Ask questions and offer replies in the request section.
  • 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.

February 2015[edit]

El Temps, Valencia, article[edit]

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could supply me with the Catalan-language article "Le presó secreta de les brigades" pp. 48-55 from El Temps, Valencia, issue 667, 31-3-1997, for improving the Castelldefels Castle article. Many thanks, --Simon Burchell (talk) 16:12, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

@Simon Burchell: The El Temps archives does not go that far back. Do you know if its available elsewhere online? - NQ (talk) 16:28, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Seven Days Battles[edit]

Thank you in advance, --ceradon (talkcontribs) 00:14, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi ceradon, I've sent you pages 210-248 and 338-352. A few pages are missing but this is the best I can do at the moment. I'll keep looking. Regards - NQ (talk) 15:34, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you so much. I guess I'll have to scrounge around for the missing pages. However, If something does pop up, remember me! Thank you, --ceradon (talkcontribs) 05:02, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

History of the 120th Infantry Regiment[edit]

Hi, I would need:

  • N. N.: History of the 120th Infantry Regiment. Infantry Journal Press, Washington DC 1947, pp. 228 to approx. 233 (could well be one ot two more)

It seems as though there is a chapter or section bearing the caption “Brunswick (Braunschweig)“. I would need the whole chapter (plus perhaps the page before it starts as well as the one after the section’s end. Unfortnuately I have no exact idea how long this acutally is, but it should not be longer than a couple of pages. Thanks in advance. Brunswyk (talk) 17:18, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

American Cyanamid[edit]

Dear Wikipedians,

I'm looking for books about American Cyanamid, e.g. yearbooks or something like 50 Years of American Cyanamid. I've searched at Amazon, but haven't found, what I'm looking for. Because I'm not based in the US, it's difficult for me to find literature. --Kopiersperre (talk) 22:16, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: American Cyanamid's reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission are publicly available, starting in 1994. Since American Cyanamid stopped being a reporting company in 1995, this is a fairly short window, but you can still find some useful reports at the SEC's EDGAR webpage for American Cyanamid. John M Baker (talk) 22:19, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
I would like to have a book with photos and so one. Don't you have more pleasing (not Form 10-K) annual reports in the US?--Kopiersperre (talk) 20:01, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
@Kopiersperre: In the U.S., the annual report to stockholders is a separate document from the formal annual report to the SEC on Form 10-K, although the stockholders' annual report may be included as an exhibit to the 10-K. The annual report to stockholders typically, but not always, is aesthetically more pleasing (although I tend to prefer the 10-K, which often has more solid information). These days EDGAR can accommodate annual reports with fancy graphs and colored pictures, and companies generally put them on their own web pages. In 1994, however, EDGAR was entirely text-based. I haven't checked, but I assume that either American Cyanamid did not have a web site or that site is long-gone. John M Baker (talk) 22:22, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Polish Brewing articles[edit]

Looking for articles from three different Polish journals for the Grodziskie article.

The first journal is Przemysł fermentacyjny i owocowo-warzywny and the link takes you to the worldcat entry for it. It appears to be available from a few scattered sources worldwide, including the British Library. I am looking for the following articles:

  • Szmelich, W. (1994). O historii i sposobie wytwarzania unikalnego piwa grodziskiego. Przemysł Fermentacyjny i Owocowo-Warzywny, 38(01), 7-10.

The next article is from the same journal with a different name. Przemysł fermentacyjny. Older. It is also available at the British Library.

  • Szmelich W., l963: Problem drożdży dla produkcji piwa grodziskiego. Przem. Ferment: Nr. 11, 262.

Final journal is Acta Microbiologica Polonica, which Worldcat only locates from some resources in France. The link takes you to the journal page. The article I am looking for is

  • Szmelich, W. (1964). YEAST SELECTION FOR THE PRODUCTION OF GRODZISK BEER. Acta microbiologica Polonica, 13, 255.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Neil916 (Talk) 00:56, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

UK! Need Who's Who/Findmypast/Military records etc[edit]

I'm searching for background information to hopefully create articles for:

  • Michael Patrick Day CVO (born February 1953
  • Brigadier James Henry Gordon CB CBE late The Royal Green Jackets, 504457. He received queen's birthday honours in 1991 and 2013 and the U.S. Legion of Merit. He has such a common name that I'm having trouble finding any info to start, even hometown.

If anyone could be of help, I would appreciate it! Thanks! МандичкаYO 😜 00:57, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

@Wikimandia: Hi. You do not have your email enabled. Email me via Special:EmailUser/NQ for 'Who's Who' entries of both people. - NQ (talk) 13:04, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
@Sitush: Can you check FindMyPast? - NQ (talk) 01:41, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
They're far too modern for FMP. Few genealogy websites can cover living people with any depth or degree of certainty. For Gordon, the London Gazette will have some small amounts of info, and I would imagine that if the major newspapers (Times, Guardian etc) do not then local newspapers certainly would. There is this at, which will also be in the Gazette somewhere. In fact, he is all over the web in relation to his various honours, but with scant further detail. Perhaps this is a window? - Sitush (talk) 01:51, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
@Wikimandia: - Aside from what Sitush found, there isn't much on them that I was able to locate. Who's who has significant information and it also contains direct contact details for Michael Patrick Day, perhaps that's worth a shot. - NQ (talk) 00:33, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Strange request for the Times[edit]

Hi all, I'm looking for four articles in the Times that were published on 31 January 1911. I'm literally staring at a microfilmed edition of that day, but the "South American supplement"—listed in the issue's table of contents (p. 11 of the regular edition) and the Annual Index to the Times—is not included. Please help? I'm looking for:

  1. "Naval Strength of South America," 31 Jan 1911, p. 1 (these page numbers are referring to the supplement's pagination... the regular page one has marriages etc.)
  2. "The Argentine in the 20th Century," 31 Jan 1911, p. 4
  3. "South America and Sea Power," 31 Jan 1911, p. 7
  4. "British Goods in Argentina," 31 Jan 1911, p. 9.

I'd like to use these in my South American dreadnought articles to bolster some scanty references in sources. Thanks and a cookie to whomever can help me out. Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 18:12, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

London Times, New York Times, or some other publication of that name? John M Baker (talk) 21:15, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
London Times. Hi Ed, I was not able to locate it in the Gale digital archives or at and I doubt it's included anywhere online along with Times archive. The only physical copy available is at the British Library in London. OCLC 751715866. Regards - NQ (talk) 22:30, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
The author of "Naval Strength of South America" is Commander E. Hamilton Currey. I found this passage from him in the book 'The Brazilians and their country'. Not sure if it's of any relevance. For "The Argentine in the 20th Century," there is a book by the same name published later in 1915. - NQ (talk) 23:17, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Damn, I was afraid of that. They normally include the supplements; I'm not sure why they didn't here. Probably financial. In any case, thank you for the thorough search, NQ. Best, Ed [talk] [majestic titan] 04:20, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
SLUB Dresden appears to have only some 1914 issues of that supplement. Perhaps some of the larger South American libraries have it. --HHill (talk) 11:38, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you very much!! ... And sorry for not asking before but the book L'anti-autoritarisme en ethnologie has some material on Clastres.

Reference work material on Emperor Jimmu[edit]

Basically looking for any "reference" type works, be they encyclopedic or history or similar works broadly considered "reference works," discussing at length, either as the main topic of the piece or as a multi-page section in a broader work, the mythic Emperor Jimmu of Japan, for use in developing that article and related articles. -John Carter (talk) 19:17, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

@John Carter: I have a copy of Brownlee, John S, Japanese Historians and the National Myths, 1600-1945: The Age of the Gods and Emperor Jinmu if you need any extracts not in the Google Books entry. Jbh (talk) 20:25, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Um, what exactly do you mean by "have a copy" here? :) The book appears to have been rather well received, which is definitely a plus, and I would definitely welcome any input from that source in the article when we get to that point. But if it is a physical copy, which you seem to imply, it might be harder to distribute around to all the others who might be involved. I may well ping you when I get to the point of opening discussion on the article talk page when I get to that point. John Carter (talk) 20:39, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
It is a PDF so pages can be extracted as needed. Jbh (talk) 20:43, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
That sounds very useful. My first "goal" is to more or less see what other encyclopedias and similar short reference articles might say, as an indicator of what sort of things need to be covered in the Jimmu article, early indicators of relative weight in that article, and that sort of thing, basically getting material together to develop an "outline" of sorts for the article. But I have a feeling that source you have would be a much more useful and acceptable citation source than the reference overview articles might be. But that might come second to seeing what is discussed in the other recent extant encyclopedia type sources, and the relative weight they give the material they do include. John Carter (talk) 20:52, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
OK. Ping me or email me if you need anything from the book. I also have access to JSTOR and saw several references to Emperor Jimmu but most seemed tangential on first inspection. If you find anything there you need help getting let me know. I did a quick look for other references, there was only a footnote mentioning him in my Cambridge History of Japan which surprised me. Jbh (talk) 21:22, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
@John Carter: Send me an email and I'll reply with PDFs of Brownlee, Why Prewar Japanese Historians Did Not Tell the Truth, and Ōbayashi Taryō, Japanese Myths of Descent from Heaven and Their Korean Parallels. Note to others who might do searches: The spelling Jinmu is more common in the literature. John M Baker (talk) 17:35, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

@Gabriel Yuji: The entire waqwaq series is available here Chapters 26-34 covers volume 4. - NQ (talk) 16:58, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
@NQ:. Yeah, I've already found the complete series online. The problem is that the endnotes mentioned by the source ("he mentions in the endnotes how difficult this series was to draw") are not available (or at least I couldn't find them) on Internet... Thanks, anyway! Gabriel Yuji (talk) 00:51, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
@Gabriel Yuji: The only available version online that includes all the pages from the book series are the ones you'd have to purchase. (itunes) - NQ (talk) 03:54, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks. Shyamal (talk) 04:24, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

@Shyamal: Aside from the short summary available here, not available online. - NQ (talk) 17:35, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
I've sent you a mail. - NQ (talk) 17:50, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks although that snippet-crawl hack is too tedious to use. Shyamal (talk) 03:36, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Yuri(y) Abramochkin[edit]

I read that Contemporary Photographers (New York: St James, 1995) has a short article on Yuriy Abramochkin (also spelled Yuri Abramochkin; there may also be other variants). (The article is up at AfD but this is not a request to stave off the risk of deletion: I am still open-minded about the fate of the article, as its AfD will show.) Thank you for your trouble. -- Hoary (talk) 13:32, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

@Hoary: Yes Sent - NQ (talk) 14:15, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
Received! Thank you very much. (However, "RL" demands my attention, so it may be 12 hours until I can start to utilize what I have received.) -- Hoary (talk) 22:52, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Request for recently published sources relating to Kenji Miyazawa[edit]

Requesting any recent encyclopedic type sources, or extended sections of any works of a broadly academic or general biographical nature, regarding the subject Kenji Miyazawa, for use in determining the structure and content of that article. It would probably be most useful if any sources other than encyclopedias, handbooks, and similar collected works had articles or chapters or whatever of no more than 20 or so pages, to permit a more reasonable ability to determine what subsections and material to include, and the relative weight of such sections.

The Sunday Times[edit]

I have online access to the more recent articles from The Sunday Times, but not back to 1983. Is there anyone who has access that could help? Many thanks - SchroCat (talk) 12:15, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
