The Resource Request is where you can request information on a subject or request a specific article, if you lack a source for a Wikipedia article.

Skip to ↓ table of contents ↓   ↓ bottom of page ↓
Fixing references and common medical problems!
Warning: for legal reasons, we must note that the Resource Exchange cannot fix any medical problems. But it can fix references.

Making a request:

  • A request may be an open question for more information on a specific subject, or you may ask for a specific journal article or work which has been cited but you lack the relevant text. Someone may be able to help you.
  • All kinds of sources are possible here: any newspaper or magazine article, searches in a commercial full-text newspaper or journal databases, searches in academic journal databases, encyclopedia articles, court decisions, laws, academic publications or research results, biographies, etc. (but note that requests for full book scans will not be handled)
  • Be aware that you are perfectly entitled to send a message to the [lead] author(s) of scientific research papers to ask for a copy of their paper directly.
  • If you are looking for a book, have you tried to access it from Google Books? (Be aware, however, that many books in Google Books cannot be entirely consulted online, and in many cases just a few pages can be accessed.) Your local library may also be able to acquire it through interlibrary loan.
  • Sometimes a book or journal article may be deposited in an institutional repository. Google Scholar can identify the location of these open access digital copies when available.
  • To make a request, you may either contact directly one of the people who have listed themselves below under Direct contact or follow the procedure here for making a general request on this page.
  • To get email replies without disclosing your email address publicly, configure "My preferences, User profile, Email options".
  • Start a new section at the end of the 'New requests' section at the foot of this page and sign with your username (four tildes). Request specific titles, dates, or a combination of search keywords. You also may specify which database or work to search in. Add as much detail as possible as this speeds up the whole process, including as full of a citation as possible instead of just a weblink. Try to provide a DOI for an electronic document or an ISBN for a book.
  • If you are requesting multiple sources, numbering them (1, 2, 3..) can help to keep the subsequent discussion clear.
  • Keep an eye on your request on this page to acknowledge questions and remarks promptly.
  • Once a request has been fulfilled, add a note to that effect to your request so that the work won't be duplicated by others. The {{Resolved}} template is appropriate. The request then will later be moved to the 'Filled requests' section.

Responding to a request

  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests. People whose library provides access to a relevant database or to an extensive (academic) archive, or anyone who has a personal collection of resources is particularly well placed.
  • Edit any questions and replies into the relevant section of this page. Indicate which part or parts of the request you consider you have answered so others do not duplicate your work.
  • Mark the request using {{ping|REQUESTER_USERNAME}} so that the requester is notified.
  • If you decide to transfer an electronic document to the requester this will normally be done either (a) by giving a URL ( http://... ) pointing to a web resource or (b) by email to the requester.
  • (a) Web document. Edit the URL into the relevant section. If the document is not already on a web server you may be able to upload it to one, provided it is legal for you to do so. Be sure to respect copyrights and terms of services of any online services you use. Copyrighted articles from print publications or copies obtained through online databases (e.g. JSTOR) may not be uploaded for unrestricted distribution via open websites.
  • (b) Email, particularly for sending a document as an attachment:
  • If you have configured a Wikipedia email address ("My preferences, User profile, Email options"), edit the relevant section on this page asking the requester to email you using "Email this user" so you may reply to them.
  • Alternatively, and provided the requester has configured a Wikipedia email address, by going to their user page and clicking "Email this user" you can send a text message (but not an attachment) which will give the requester your own email address. In your message ask the requester to reply so you will learn their email address. Edit the relevant section of this page to tell other people what you are doing. Reply to the requester's reply with a second message which includes the relevant attachment.

Filled and stale requests

Requests which have been filled will be archived at the Filled requests subpage .

Requests which have become stale, i.e. remain unfulfilled and have not had any response for a long period of time (three months), may be moved to the Stale requests subpage

New requests[edit]

February 2014[edit]

Sterculia khasiana[edit]

I am looking for Debbarman's article about Sterculia khasiana In: Assam Forest Records. Botany. Calcutta, India 1: 5, t. 3. 1934 [Jul 1934] (as Stercula khasiana). Unfortunately this work is not available in German libraries but maybe in England or in India. Is someone here who could help me to get this article? Many thanks in advance --Melly42 (talk) 20:26, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

This is going to be a tough one. WorldCat lists Assam Forest Records. Botany. (OCLC #3994939) as only being available in four institutions: Harvard, the Smithsonian, Oxford, and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. You might have to contact an editor who has access to one of those libraries. Gamaliel (talk) 19:15, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
What do you mean with editor? I don't think that the editors who participated at the 1934 issue are still alive. --Melly42 (talk) 05:58, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
A Wikipedia editor. Many of them are college students who might have access to one of these libraries. Gamaliel (talk) 16:59, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
How can I get in touch with these editors? I don't know anyone who has access to these libraries --Melly42 (talk) 12:40, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
@Melly42: If a secondary source is enough, you can try this Shyamal (talk) 04:10, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi Shyamal. I know that source. But it seems that there are two scientific descriptions by Debbarman. The first one (in Assam Forest Records, 1934a) and the second (1934b in Flora of Assam). My question is how can I contact the people who have access to the contemplable libraries. --Melly42 (talk) 11:10, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
@Melly42: I have posted the request to a Facebook group will be quite difficult unless there is a motivated Wikipedian who lives in Guwahati, Assam willing to help - I am sure the library of the Assam Forest Department will have a copy. Another option to try (may need exceptional powers of persuasion I am afraid) the librarian contact given here Shyamal (talk) 11:42, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks for your help. I am curios, whether it will work. --Melly42 (talk) 12:10, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
Noone is willing to help in the Facebook group --Melly42 (talk) 19:41, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
I've just tried the email address from this page: Unfortunately my e-mail returned as undeliverable. So e-mail link didn't work --Melly42 (talk) 17:21, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Too bad about that, not too many other options unless we find someone local to help. Shyamal (talk) 08:19, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

I need: "Assam Forest Records. Botany." Calcutta, India. vol. 1: part 5, t. 3. 1934 [July 1934] / There is an article about "Stercula khasiana" in it. I need a scan of this article and of the title pages and the imprint of this work. Thank you very much, -- Doc Taxon (talk) 19:34, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, this has already been requested above and we haven't had any luck locating it. Your best bet may be to directly contact one of those institutions or a Wikipedia editor who has access to those institutions. Gamaliel (talk) 20:30, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Well, it would be help to learn some of the names of the Wikipedia editors who have access to those institutions. Is there any contact site at Wikipedia? --Melly42 (talk) 21:18, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Article from Animatrix[edit]

I′m actually active on de.wp, but I guess asking my question on en.wp makes more sense. I'm searching for

Lo Nuestro Awards missing nominations[edit]

Currently, me and Jaespinoza are looking for nominations for the Past Lo Nuestro Awards as he's getting the category lists to FL. We've managed to get most of them, but we are missing the nominations for the years 1989, 1990, 1992, 1994, 1995, and 2000. For 1989, I could only find the nominations for the Pop Artists field on Google Books and for 2000, I could only find a partial list on both the web, books, and Google newspaper. I've searched everywhere online on Google (including Books and Newspaper), but with no luck. With little choice left, I decided to see if Newsbank possibly has them and it seems they do based on search results, but I do not have the money to purchase the articles or become a member. I do not know how to link the articles I want to see on Newsbank, but I'll post the names of them (I'm assuming they have the nominations).


1990: AWARDS MAKING CROSSOVER 500 MILLION TO WATCH HISPANIC 'GRAMMYS' (Miami Herald), Latin Music Awards 3 Houston acts earn nominations (Houston Chronicles), ESTA NOCHE, ENTREGA DE PREMIOS LO NUESTRO (Nuevo Heradld)

1992: PREMIO Local artists to highlight awards show By Jim Beal (San Antonio Express-News), La Mafia earns music award nominations (Houston Chronicle),

1994: Luis Miguel candidato a premios Lo Nuestro (Fort Worth Star Telegram), LO NUESTRO, BILLBOARD HONOR LATIN SINGERS (Miami Herald), 'PREMIOS LO NUESTRO': UN PREMIO Y DOS CAMINOS (Miami Herald),

1990, 1992, 1994, 1995, 2000 articles emailed to User:Magiciandude. Gamaliel (talk) 23:57, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the articles! Only 1992 and 2000 articles still don't have the complete nominations, so is it alright if I keep searching or do I make a new request? In either case, thank you very much! Erick (talk) 00:20, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
I couldn't find a complete list for those years in a Newsbank search, but that doesn't mean they aren't in a Newsbank article or in some other database somewhere. If you find some more articles that might help you you're welcome to make a new request or add them here. Gamaliel (talk) 00:56, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Alright, well thanks again! What are the other databases would you recommend? I already tried TheFreeLibrary. Erick (talk) 01:17, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
I found the 1992 nominees in an article in Billboard, which I have emailed. That leaves only 2000. John M Baker (talk) 05:16, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Thank you very much! EDIT: Just one another little issue I have is that the 1994 articles doesn't list the nominees for Male & Female Artist of the Year for the Pop, Tropical, and Regional Mexican categories. Erick (talk) 09:41, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Article requests: Miguel, Guerra top Latin Music Awards field Houston Chronicle (1994), Miguel, Guerra top awards nominees Ramiro Burr, Latin Notes San Antonio Express (1994). El 5 de mayo entregan Premio Lo Nuestro a Musica Latina en Miami El Nuevo Hudson (2000). Erick (talk) 23:32, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Emailed the first two. Can't find the third. Gamaliel (talk) 18:59, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
@Gamaliel: The article can be found on Newsbank. The only other thing I need left is the nominations for Rap Artist of the Year and Video of the Year for the 1992 Lo Nuestro Awards. Erick (talk) 20:40, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
Here's the link for the 2000 Lo Nuestro article. Erick (talk) 04:55, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Gamaliel: I apologize for asking, but I'd like to know if the above link to the article I'm requesting is accessible or not. Erick (talk) 02:40, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Please don't apologize, I missed your question the first time. Unfortunately, El Nuevo Hudson is not available in any of the databases I have access to. Gamaliel (talk) 17:25, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
I went ahead and purchased the article. Since that's all pretty much what I need (I don't really want to bother with some of the lesser-known categories since they're very hard to find), I'm pretty much done. Erick (talk) 03:30, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

According to our article on List of American Aero Squadrons, the 169th Aero Squadron was established on 15 December 1917. It was a planned American Expeditionary Force squadron from 4 March 1918 to May 1919. It trained as an Observation Squadron in England, but never entered combat. It was demobilized in May 1919.

Verification of Japanese Wikipedia's source stating that the perpetrator in Sasebo Slashing having been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome[edit]

ISBN-13: 978-4062130417 [2]

I mention this on the article's talk page: [3]

Unfortunately, this book is out of print; while used sources are available, they are hard to have delivered (and expensive) when you live outside of Japan. Apparently, the editors at the Japanese Wikipedia are satisfied this source satisfies the statement that the perpetrator was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, but I am told that is not good enough for the English Wikipedia. The source appears to be reliable and of high-quality, written by an investigative journalist and published by Kodansha, a major Japanese publisher. An editor of the English Wikipedia would have to verify for themselves the source.

Could an editor here take a look at and verify the source again for the purposes of the English Wikipedia, so the statement may be written in the article Sasebo Slashing?--Beneficii (talk) 22:31, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Focus the Producer[edit]

Can someone please Find some resources for this article? --Rico2014 (talk) 18:36, 24 February 2014 (UTC)

Willing to be of assistance, I clicked on the conveniently provided link, and .. whoops! That article has been deleted. Three times! For: "Unambiguous advertising or promotion: no independent sources, no evidence of notability." Well, if independent sources (and any others would likely be WP:COI) simply do not exist, there is nothing to find. And that in itself is evidence of non-notability. If you don't have any sources to start with, then there is a real question of whether such an article is warranted. ~ J. Johnson (JJ) (talk) 19:28, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

  • Does anyone have access to The Comics Journal #267]? It's a Will Eisner special released shortly after Eisner's death. I'm looking for information on Eisner's graphic novel A Contract with God. From the table of contents for the issue, it doesn't appear that there is an article that focuses exclusive on Contract, but I was hoping there was something significant in one of the articles
  • R. Fiore's "The Cult of Will" (p. 183) and Gary Groth's "Will Eisner: Chairman of the Board" (p. 194) seem particularly promising.

It was published in Arthurian Literature II (or Arthurian Literature volume 2 and similar variants), published in 1982 by Boydell & Brewer and edited by Richard Barber. I haven't been able to find it anywhere in the Florida state university system libraries. Any assistance would be appreciated.--Cúchullain t/c 18:41, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

According to Worldcat, Neil Wright also has an article called "Geoffrey of Monmouth and Gildas Revisited" in volume IV. The University of Florida has volumes 1-30 in print form. The ISSN is 0261-9946. Gamaliel (talk) 18:56, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks so much, Gamaliel, I should be able to find it now. I do have access to the second article.--19:20, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Spanish-language thesis from Colegio de Mexico[edit]

Does anyone have this thesis from Colegio de Mexico?

  • Takehiro Misawa, "Familia como Institución de Seguridad Transgeneracional: Reprodución Social y Cultural de los Descendientes Japonesas en Mexico" (thesis, El Colegio de Mexico, Centros de Estudios Demográficos, 1996)

I want to see what it says about the Japanese community of Mexico City and Liceo Mexicano Japonés. I especially wanted it because a book citing it The Japanese in Latin America by Daniel M. Masterson, said:

  • p. 266: "How did the Japanese immigrant family fare through the early 1990s in Mexico? We are fortunate to have a carefully researched study of this critically important social institution completed by Takehiro Misawa. Like Watanabe's work for the 1980s, Misawa placed particular emphasis upon marriage patterns, Japanese language schools, and university education as socializing forces through the generations. Primarily focused on the nation's capital,[...]"

Oxford Bodleian[edit]

Hi! Is it possible to get a scan of a rare work, held on Oxford Library: I cannot get it anywhere else, so I hope you can help me, or you know anyone, who can help.

I need: "Assam Forest Records. Botany." Calcutta, India. vol. 1: part 5, t. 3. 1934 [July 1934] / There is an article about "Stercula khasiana" in it.

Weik article and Florida Bicentennial Trail[edit]

I have been working on a couple of articles over in the Geography section, and I have encountered a couple of sources that I would like to use, but I do not have access to.

1.) I found that the article "The Role of Ethnogenesis and Organization in the Development of African-American Settlements: an African Seminole Model" by Dr. Terrance M. Weik, which was published in the International Journal of Historical Archaelogy June 2009 edition (Vol. 13, No. 2), contained information about the area that I have been editing. I registered with JSTOR's Register & Read program, but the article is not accessible with my type of account. I am an alumna of a college, but I am not a member of the alumni association.

2.) I came across a few excerpts from the Tampa Tribune article "Sumpter Countians Ambush State on Bicentennial Trail" (published February 16, 1976) on the SeminoleWar blog. I would like to access the article. (Note: Sumpter also could be spelled "Sumter" in the article's title as "Sumter" is the correct spelling of the county's name.)

Could I please have access to these two? SciGal (talk) 17:36, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Guy from Tampa here. This is from memory so it may be wrong, but it's my understanding that the Trib is only available electronically back to the 1990s, and to go back further would require microfilm. However, the nearby St. Pete Times is available on Google News back to the 19th century, so you might find a similar article there. Gamaliel (talk) 18:15, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't able to find the exact article, but I was able to find an article from the Ocala Star-Banner people asking the Sumter County commissioners about cleaning Dade Battlefield in 1976 and a St. Pete Times article about the fight over the removal of a fence at the park. (Pardon the informal title for the park; I know people from Sumter County, and that is one of two ways I have heard residents refer to the park.) SciGal (talk) 20:05, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Variety archives[edit]

There are a couple of articles about John Barrymore in the Variety archives from 1 June 1942 (a couple of days after his death). I think one was on the front page, one on page 4. There was also another article in the 2 June edition (page 4?). If anyone could obtain these I'd be much obliged! Cheers - SchroCat (talk) 19:07, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Description of request[edit]

Brief citation of the requested materials. Wikipedia articles being improved. --Kitw123 (talk) 04:08, 11 April 2014 (UTC) At clicking on 9 Product-to-sum and sum-to-product identities gives 
\begin{align} \prod_{k=1}^n \cos \theta_k & = \frac{1}{2^n}\sum_{e\in S} \cos(e_1\theta_1+\cdots+e_n\theta_n) \\[6pt] & \text{where }S=\{1,-1\}^n \end{align} 
with abramowitz and stegun as a reference. i cannot find it there and would love to know its proof.

Also clicking there on 17 Identities without variables gives

   \prod_{k=1}^{n-1} \sin\left(\frac{k\pi}{n}\right) = \frac{n}{2^{n-1}}


   \prod_{k=1}^{n-1} \cos\left(\frac{k\pi}{n}\right) = \frac{\sin(\pi n/2)}{2^{n-1}} 

and the reference seems to be [36] but that does not give a source.

I source for these 3 formulas would be really appreciated. kit.withers

@Kitw123: reference #36 does not refer to the Wikipedia article on Eric W. Weisstein, it refers to this Mathworld article written by Eric Weisstein. Gamaliel (talk) 14:39, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Verifiable source for Patrick McKeown[edit]

Hi, could you people help with verifiable sources of participation of Patrick McKeown in the following:

For more info please see poorly referenced and therefore deleted parts of Patrick McKeown on April 11,2014, (Revision history);

  • Any reliable sources of his participation in studies of asthma, rhinitis, sleep apnea, snoring, facial orthotropics, clinical trials internationally.

Also I found that his book is cited here (see ref#7), but not sure if it would be enough: It seems to be a lot of work, huge thank you for that. Trying to improve Patrick McKeown nominated for deletion (1 day left so far). --sobaka_kachalova 14:53, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

p. 152-157 of Chizuko Watanabe Master's thesis (only available in person at California State University, El Colegio de Mexico, and University of Cincinnati)[edit]


To improve Liceo Mexicano Japones

From the book:

Masterson, Daniel M. The Japanese in Latin America. University of Illinois Press, 2004. 0252071441, 9780252071447.

I found that quote on page 215, which says:

  • "Fieldwork by Chizuko Watanabe concludes that Japanese parents sent their children to the school to "maintain their ethnic identity and pride, implant a spiritual heritage that they claim is the basis for success, and to establish close ties with Nikkei-jin children who live in distant areas.""
The book has a footnote numbered 91 (at the end of the paragraph). "Notes to Pages 205-219." (p. 322) note 91 points to "Ibid., 152-157. - Which would be from Watanabe, "Japanese Immigrant Community." - So I believe the information about the Liceo Mexicano Japones from the Chizuko Watanabe thesis (or at least some of it) is somewhere on pages 152-157 of Chizuko Watanabe's master's thesis
This isn't to say that the thesis isn't available electronically or in print somewhere else, but it is only listed in Worldcat as belonging to El Colegio de Mexico and the University of Cincinnati. Gamaliel (talk) 16:53, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Haas, George C. O. (June 1938). "Bibliography of A. V. Williams Jackson". Journal of the American Oriental Society 58 (2): 241–257. JSTOR 594810. 

A. V. Williams Jackson edited the Columbia University Indo-Iranian Series (13 vols., New York, 1901–32) and I suspect this article may list the individual volumes of the series. I have located upto Volume 9 elsewhere but clueless regarding 9–13 vols. In any case this article will help improve the biography page of Jackson. Solomon7968 12:35, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Here is the article. Also, here is "Addenda to the Bibliography of A. V. Williams Jackson" from Vol. 58, No. 3 (Sep., 1938), p. 473. Gamaliel (talk) 17:03, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Gamaliel, many thanks. One additional question: What is the copyright status of the individual journal articles? Are they in public domain? Solomon7968 13:21, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't have a definitive answer for that. Individual items may fall into the public domain for one reason or another, but it's generally safe to assume anything published after 1923 is still protected by copyright. Gamaliel (talk) 15:36, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
