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.

New requests[edit]

August 2014[edit]

Auto/Biography Studies[edit]

I'm looking for "Racial Conviction, Racial Confusion: Indeterminate Identities in Women's Slave Narratives and Southern Courts" (1995) by Dawn Keetley in Auto/Biography Studies 10(2), pp. 1–20, doi:10.1080/08989575.1995.10815067. It's for an article on John H. Van Evrie that I'm drafting at User:Arms & Hearts/sandbox7. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 21:00, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Falcon's Fury Drop Tower FAA File/Permit[edit]

I'm wondering if it is possible to find a file/permit issued by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) that was once available for viewing on the internet but has since been taken down (and there are no archives of it). The file used to be located here and the case number of the file is: "2012-ASO-1842-OE". I am hoping the permit can be recovered as I am improving the Falcon's Fury article and this reference is the only one that is dead. If a reference point is needed to see what a FAA permit look like, you can click here (this permit is the one that replaced the permit I am looking for). If this permit cannot be retrieved, it would be greatly appreciated if you (using the resources you have) try to find another source that states the same info (specifically the fact that the Falcon's Fury tower was supposed to be installed by December 2012). Thanks! --Dom497 (talk) 23:41, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps I've misunderstood, but the full text is almost 700 pages over three volumes; I'm not sure that anybody's going to be able to provide that. What specifically are you looking for? – Arms & Hearts (talk) 14:19, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Oh yes, well I was focusing on the third volume (I see that now): "Beyond the British Isles" with the American section (what I'm particularly focused on) ranging from about pages 467 to 559, with or without 490-500 (which seems more focused on Canada). Wolfdog (talk) 14:43, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

Associated Press or New York World Telegram from 1956[edit]

A quote from AP in 1956 is sourced in a number of articles and has been discussed at Talk:Expulsions_of_Egyptian_Jews_(1956)#Proclamation_re_Jews_and_Zionists. It is an important quote because it appears to contradict other public statements from the Egyptian government at the time (this was during the Suez Crisis). The secondary sources which provide reference to the primary newspaper sources are not themselves WP:RS, hence the need to review the newspaper articles.

The quote:

  • "all Jews are Zionists and enemies of the state"

The sources:

  • AP, (November 26, 1956)
  • New York World Telegram, (November 29, 1956)

Does anyone have searchable access to the archives for these sources? --Oncenawhile (talk) 19:13, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

@Oncenawhile: I don't have access to the New York World Telegram or to the AP wire itself, but I do have access to archives of newspapers that frequently ran AP stories. None of the AP stories include this quotation, although there are AP stories about the expulsion of Egyptian Jews, which was big news at the time. John M Baker (talk) 05:26, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks John. Perhaps these archives are just not available. It would make a big difference to find the source because this quote is the only known support for the idea that the Egyptian government targeted Jews per se (i.e. rather than targeting British nationals, French nationals and Zionists, which is what other evidence suggests). Oncenawhile (talk) 09:35, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually the news papers archive could be retrieved if someone had access to this libraries [2] in New York--Shrike (talk)/WP:RX 10:00, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Harper's weekly 1895[edit]

Hello! I am looking for Harper's Weekly December 14, 1895 edition. According to this site, this picture should be on page 1248. I am looking for similar pictures. That photograph is just one of a larger collection as seen here. If you can't find Harper's Weekly, the British newspaper The Graphic has a set of photographs as well. It should be on the December 7th 1895 edition. If you can get me a digitized version of these editions that will be great. I am planning to place these photographs in the Hamidian massacres article. All the best, Étienne Dolet (talk) 05:22, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

UPDATE: Thanks to the efforts of NQ, we have found The Graphic. But I'm still interested in the Harper's Weekly issue. I'd greatly appreciate it if someone can find it. Once again, thank you very much. Étienne Dolet (talk) 21:14, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Edge No. 122[edit]

Hello, apparently there is a retrospective review of Super Mario Bros. in issue 122 of Edge magazine that gave the game a 10/10 rating. The issue was released around 2003. Unfortunately I don't have more information on this, so I'd be happy if somebody could provide a scan of the review. Thanks to this, we could finally cite a source for the statement here; furthermore I wish to use this retrospective review as a source for the German article to Super Mario Bros.

Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research vol 93 (1999)[edit]

Yeah. Not much hope for this request, considering both its sketchy nature and the lack of concrete information I have. I am working on a full rewrite of fringe theory, and there is an article in this journal that -- I think -- has some discussion of what constitutes fringe theories relative to what is already a fringe field (parapsychology). I have a page number from within that article (page 370). What I don't have is a title, an author, or the complete page range. I also lack the specific issue number that includes this page, but I believe it to be 4.

Needless to say, nothing I have access to indexes this, or maintains copies. Odds aren't in my favor here, but it never hurts to ask. Squeamish Ossifrage (talk) 16:00, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Requesting sources for ¿Qué Creías?[edit]

I am attempting to make this stub article into a featured article candidate, however, since google archives have been down for some time I'm very limited to several books/magazines that briefly talks about the song and only two or three have been sourced in my sandbox for the article. Any help will be appreciative! Best, jonatalk to me 23:16, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

@AJona1992: We don't usually respond to open-ended requests like this, but I just emailed articles from the Austin American Statesman, Houston Chronicle, and Entertainment Weekly. Each really just has one citable factoid on the song. I'm doubtful that you're going to find enough English language sources for a featured article candidate. John M Baker (talk) 15:06, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
No reason to just rest upon English-language sources for this. I've used plenty of Spanish-language sources for FA. I don't work on music articles though, so have no idea what constitutes a reliable source in this case. Simon Burchell (talk) 15:17, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that's absolutely true. I don't speak Spanish and don't know to what extent, if any, the Spanish sources improve on the little that's available in English. John M Baker (talk) 15:53, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks once again for providing those sources. I don't speak Spanish either, I just ask other editors to translate it for me. Thanks, jonatalk to me 23:27, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

Modern Italy: verification help[edit]

  • Smith, Denis Mack (1997). Modern Italy: A Political History. University of Michigan Press. ISBN 978-047210-895-4. 

I am hoping this is the correct place to ask this, I am hoping someone can help verify the following information rather than provide scans of the source. The following information has been inserted (by me) into the Italian invasion of France based off some material I wrote a few years ago for another article. I was double checking some of the sources used, to provide better wording, and noticed that the below material is not cited on page 170 as stated in the article. I am inclined to think that this might be a typo and the information may be on page 270 (otherwise I have possibly cited the wrong book). However, I cannot access that page on Google Books. Can anyone confirm if the above source does supports the below statements?

Statement 1: 'During the late 1920s, imperial expansion became an increasingly favoured theme in Benito Mussolini's speeches. He argued that Italy needed an outlet for its "surplus population", and it would therefore be in the best interests of other countries to aid in this expansion.'

Statement 2: "Among Mussolini's (non-publicly proclaimed) aims were that Italy had to become the dominant power in the Mediterranean that would be able to challenge Britain and France, as well as attain access to the Atlantic and Indian Oceans."

Strong's concordance[edit]

Can someone please verify this citation: Strong, James. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers. pp. Heb dict 22. ISBN 1-56563-777-1. . Is the definition of BAALAH (or similar) in the book really "lady, mistress, owner (female), wife" ?

Background: Strong's Concordance is an old books with many web versions, which give usually "mistress, female owner. sorceress, necromancer (noun of relationship)". One previewable fresh edition (ISBN 1598563785) gives "mistress: -that has, a mistress", no wife. The citation was added at Baal later than the definition itself [4] and I will be surprised if in a biblical context, a term for wife is used that connotes symmetry with the husband. --trespassers william (talk) 23:48, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. That shows what's in the 1st edition, but since there are variations I ask about the specific edition cited in the article. trespassers william (talk) 18:19, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Does that master/mistress, lord/lady masculine/feminine form really seem strange? It's a pretty standard linguistic feature. In any case, as you point out the content predates the citation, so I'd just change the citation to use a freely available source instead of the 1990 edition.
