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.

Diflumetorim fungicide[edit]

I'm looking for the following paper:

  • K. Fujii and S. Takamura, “Pyricut® (diflumetorim, UBF-002EC)—a new fungicide for ornamental use,” Agrochemicals Japan, no. 72, pp. 14–16, 1998

It could be easy for someone from Japan.--Kopiersperre (talk) 18:04, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Need help finding sources talking about a Malaysian expressway[edit]

I'm currently working on North–South Expressway Northern Route, but online secondary sources have been a pain to find. A web search turned up nothing reliable, while a Google Books and Google Scholar search resulted in only one minor publication by the World Bank, which I could only use for one sentence. Searches of local news websites resulted in only accidents and incidents that occurred, which aren't notable. I'm pretty much hanging on the hope that there is a paper source (or some online work that I haven't been able to find) going into detail about the expressway, especially its history. If there is, it would also help a lot with the general North–South Expressway (Malaysia) article as well as North–South Expressway Southern Route, if I do get to it eventually. – Pizza1016 (talk | contribs) 06:36, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Source to create an article on Black Creek (Susquehanna River)[edit]

I discovered this (a 1968 USGS open-file report by Thomas Gwyn Newport, Harry E. Koester, Marion Joseph Bergin; the title is "Geology, hydrology, and geochemistry of the Black Creek watershed near Mocanaqua, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania"), which seems like a very useful source for an article on Black Creek. The trouble is that the USGS doesn't have it online, Worldcat says that there are no libraries that have the report, and on, it says that "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." Can anyone here get ahold of it? --Jakob (talk) 02:56, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jakob, the only available copy is at the U.S. Geological Survey Library in Reston, Virginia. (Call No. (200) N473g) It's open to the general public. - NQ (talk) 08:25, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Finding a quote of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the Egyptian president on 1967, in Heykal's book[edit]

Will it be possible to find a quote of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the Egyptian president on 1967, in Heykal's book: Sphinx and commissar: the rise and fall of Soviet influence in the Arab world ?

- The quote is found in the hebrew version of Gluska's The Israeli Military and the Origins of the 1967 War, p. 235. My translation is: "Nasser canceled at the last minute a planned Egyptian attack, and later accused the soviets: "you stopped us and have not allowed us to be the first to attack. You have not let us having the initiative. That was a collusion."

- Gluska cites Heykal's book: Sphinx and commissar: the rise and fall of Soviet influence in the Arab world, the Hebrew version, p. 181, 182.

History of the 120th Infantry Regiment[edit]

Hi, I would need:

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.

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)

Need Someone With an Subscription to Provide Me With a Specific 1954 Death Certificate[edit]

X mark.svg Not done

Basically, I am trying to verify the case of a woman who died in 1954 and who claimed to be 112 years old at the time of her death for the Gerontology Research Group. Based on my research, this woman might have indeed been 112 years old (or extremely close to it) at the time of her death. That said, though, I am unsure about what exactly the names of this woman's parents were; thus, I am hoping to access this woman's death certificate in order to see if it states the names of this woman's parents; the names of this woman's parents can go a very long way in verifying this woman's claimed age.

I think that has this woman's death certificate:

I think that this specific death certificate is indeed for this woman:

View Record Nancy Merrimen dd mm 1954 location Purchase original record from Cook County

However, I myself do not have an subscription; thus, I am wondering if someone here who does have an subscription can get access to this woman's death certificate and, if this is legal, to give me a copy of this woman's death certificate. Again, I want this death certificate for gerontology research purposes, which, in my honest opinion, is certainly a very good cause. Futurist110 (talk) 21:15, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Hi Futurist110, the record you're looking for is merely indexed on The original death certificate is available for purchase from the Cook County Clerk’s Office for 17 USD.
Name: Nancy Merrimen | Death Date: 14 Jan 1954 | Death Location: Cook County, IL | File Number: 6001585 | Archive collection name: Cook County Genealogy Records (Deaths). [Index-only Record] - NQ (talk) 00:05, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
So in other words, there is no way at all to get this woman's death certificate for free, correct? Futurist110 (talk) 04:49, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
@Futurist110: Correct. - NQ (talk) 13:26, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
They charge an extra fee so it's $18.75 ... lame! It's too bad the Social Security death index doesn't start until 1962.... Wikimandia (talk) 21:33, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
The U.S. Social Security Death Index might not help here considering that I know when exactly this woman died; rather, I simply want to know what exactly this woman's parents' names are due to the fact that this information might very well be crucial in verifying this woman's claimed age. Based on the research which I (and possibly one or more other people) have done on this case, this woman might have very well indeed been 112 years old at the time of her death, but I need to know the names of this woman's parents so that I can confirm that the 1850 and 1860 U.S. Census entries which I and/or other people have found are indeed for the Nancy Merriman/Merrimen who died in 1954.

  • Toronto Globe and Mail, 22 May 1952; will include "Toronto Symphony Orchestra".
  • Toronto Globe and Mail, 30 May 1952; will include "Toronto Musicians Association", details of a meeting held at Arts and Letter Club on 29 May and the quote "The refusal to renew contracts may indicate an infringement of Canadian artists' right to employment."
  • Toronto Daily Star, 15 August 1952; will include a quote from John Moscow "We had given up hope, now we know we have not been forgotten."
  • Toronto Daily Star, 26 August 1952; a lengthy editorial includes "Dr. Seeley fears that the TSO directors have, by their action, set the dangerous precedent in Canada of making employment contingent upon a person's ability to obtain a border crossing card from the U.S. Immigration Department ... Significantly, Dr. Seeley's statement last week was followed by an Ottawa dispatch reporting that the Canadian External Affairs department is deeply concerned about the large number of Canadians who have been refused permission to cross our 'invisible border' even for short visits ... It is strongly felt here that the regulations contained in the McCarran Act are so vicious that an opportunity should be found to make the Canadian viewpoint known."
  • Toronto Daily Star, 2 September 1952; "Federation of Canadian Artists" and the "Canadian Arts Council", resolved to support [Symphony Six].

I’m trying enhance de:Eiserne Hand (Prothese) and related articles. Thanks in advance. Rgds  hugarheimur 18:17, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

@Torana: I've sent you a mail. Do check. - NQ (talk) 19:11, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
You seem to be right about the date. D’oh! Basically, I’d like to know if the catalogue entry says more than is quoted at myArmoury, especially about the provenance of this particular prosthesis. Rgds  hugarheimur 19:24, 17 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.
  • Marczak, J., Jarzabek, Z., & Marczewski, B. (2010). Piwo z pszenicy. Przemysł Fermentacyjny i Owocowo-Warzywny, 54(01).
  • Jarzabek, Z., Marczak, J., & Marczewski, B. (2010). Skąd się w piwie wzięły drożdże?. Przemysł Fermentacyjny i Owocowo-Warzywny, 54(04).

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)

The first one is available here, and the last one, there. Rgds  hugarheimur 05:11, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Companion to the British Army 1939-1945[edit]

I have accessed from the below via Google Books, but it lacks page numbers. It is so far, the only source that spells out the role of the below division and clears up some inconsistencies in other related articles, and pro ides further information on this hard to research division. Does anyone have a copy, or access to it, and could confirm what the page linked below is?

Regards --EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 15:22, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi EnigmaMcmxc, that's the ebook version, which likely has different pagination from the print. You can cite the ebook version using chapter name instead of page numbers. Nikkimaria (talk) 16:08, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the advise. Would that be using the regular cite book template?EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 17:00, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, using its chapter parameter. Nikkimaria (talk) 17:04, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
@EnigmaMcmxc: btw I use a lot of ebooks as references; and instead of chapters, I just mark it "edition=ePub" so I can still cite page numbers. It depends on what you're doing, but in some fields (esp genealogy, nobility lines, etc) some editors tag the reference with "page number needed," so that way I'm covered.

Okay, thank you so much for your help!! So Focus is only available in San Francisco? I've already worked through most of the articles, they are pretty useful. But there's one more I came across only now - maybe you have access to that one, too?

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)

Small town papers archive[edit]

Possibly wrong place for this

I remember that was able to access a much better (more comprehensive) source for US small town papers than I can't remember what exactly it was. I sort of suspect it was via, and that this has been dismantled or sold off or something. But maybe it was something else. It's a shame, because I was trying to recreate some research I did a while ago, and I can't seem to find the sources I used originally. Any advice in re free small town paper archives would be welcome. --Dingsuntil (talk) 22:31, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

@Dingsuntil: Hi, what newspaper sources are you looking for? and are the same. - NQ (talk) 22:52, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Are you thinking of It's probably the most comprehensive, but it isn't free. John M Baker (talk) 22:55, 24 March 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)
Should be Volume no. 7 (January 1911). Available at the University of Toronto Libraries. @OhanaUnited: - NQ (talk) 12:03, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
