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.

San Jose Mercury -- 1981 article[edit]

I need an as-yet unidentified article on page 45 of the October 30, 1981 issue of the San Jose Mercury. The author is Murray Frymer, and the article mentions runner Harold Abrahams and (presumably) the film Chariots of Fire. NOTE: I need the entire article, so if it jumps to or from another page, I need both sections/pages.

I cannot access the article from where I live, and the SJ Mercury digital archive only goes back to 1985.

Articles being improved: Harold Abrahams and Chariots of Fire. (This SJM article by Frymer was the sole source of a widespread internet rumor that Abrahams converted to Catholicism, a falsehood that perennially gets repeatedly placed in these articles, even though this rumor has been refuted by Abrahams' official biographer. I need to read the article to see what the heck it says and why.) Thanks so much magical wiki people!

January 2015[edit]

Requesting as many reference sources relating to Est, Werner Erhard, and Landmark Education from as many databanks as I can get[edit]

One of the outcomes of a recent arbitration case was to try to involve more editors in the articles relating to Est and its successor entities, specifically including Landmark Worldwide. I think one of the best indicators of what sort of content our articles should have would be what other existing reference sources, of any kind, say about the topic. It does broadly fall within the general areas of social movements/sociology, psychology, new religious movements, self-help, and other fields, and any material from the databanks, specifically roughly "encyclopedic" articles relating to any of the topics involved would be more than welcome. Specific titles for such topics which come to mind include Erhard Seminars Training or est, Werner Erhard, Landmark Education/Landmark Worldwide, Landmark Forum, the Human potential movement, and Large group awareness training. The key articles of immediate focus are Werner Erhard, Landmark Education, Werner Erhard and Associates and the other articles in that basic subject area. John Carter (talk) 15:54, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

@John Carter: Please check your mail. - NQ (talk) 20:25, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Ideally, any content specifically of a reference overview type, encyclopedic or otherwise, which deals as closely with Landmark in its various iterations as possible, or which gives it substantial discussion in reference overviews dealing with related topics would be best, as it would help in determining relative balance and WEIGHT on the topic of Erhard's programs in the main article, which is probably the primary concern here. John Carter (talk) 20:49, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
@John Carter: Aside from a handful of articles that Asyntax has already posted on the talk page of Landmark Worldwide, I could not find much that goes into detail about Landmark Education. There are plenty of articles on the subject of est which primarily covers pre-Landmark era, but I assume that is not what you’re after. I've emailed you an entry for Erhard Seminars Training from Contemporary American Religion, which mentions that "In 1984 est was transformed into The Forum, and in 1991 it became Landmark Education Corporation." Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. If you have a specific resource in mind, do let me know. - NQ (talk) 20:15, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
@NQ: Thank you very much for your efforts. Maybe I should have said I had myself checked pretty much all the reference type sources I could find and didn't find much on these topics myself, but thought that I or Astynax might have missed some. John Carter (talk) 20:25, 10 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)

George Tomlinson[edit]

Hi. I am trying to expand our article on the British Labour politician George Tomlinson and would like some help with accessing a few sources, namely:

  • Blackburn, Fred (1954). George Tomlinson. London: Heinemann.  A full scan is available online for anyone with a library card at the National Library of Australia
  • Dean, D. W. (1986). "Planning for a postwar generation: Ellen Wilkinson and George Tomlinson at the Ministry of Education, 1945–51". History of Education (The History of Education Society) 15 (2): 95–117. doi:10.1080/0046760860150204. 
  • The entries on Tomlinson in The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, The Dictionary of Labour Biography, Biographical Dictionary of European Labor Leaders, his obituary published in Times, and anything else that might be of interest. Thanks in advance!

Senate Subcommittee Report, 1966[edit]

I've had a great deal of success requesting old newspaper archives here, so I thought I'd try my luck with something else:

I don't expect this is relevant to the request, but I'm only interested in the Barrington Plaza/Louis Lesser/Ben Deane elements. I can access small portions of it via the Google preview, enough to indicate that this is likely the best source on the Barrington Plaza development out there. Any help appreciated, Bromley86 (talk) 18:51, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

In a similar vein, there's a subsequent report that'd also be useful.

The first is LCCN 67-60280. LeadSongDog come howl! 02:19, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for that LeadSongDog. From what I can see, that system only allows hard-copy requests of this item (I'm nowhere near a US library).[5] Which is odd because it's clearly been digitised. Bromley86 (talk) 10:58, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
Something's not right. It was google-digitized last year and is available in snippet view at there, also on HathiTrust at 009990122 and 006215744. I suspect it was incorrectly flagged by the digitizer as being under copyright, though of course it should be PD-USGov. Perhaps someone in a US university environment can access the HathiTrust fulltext record? Otherwise, the hard copy should be in Federal Depository Libraries in the US.LeadSongDog come howl! 19:57, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Is there a way I can get an online version? Étienne Dolet (talk) 07:54, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Probably doesn't exist yet. Amazon, WorldCat only show print. Problem with a library copy? LeadSongDog come howl! 08:08, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Eh, I just would rather have a copy in the convenience of my home. Étienne Dolet (talk) 20:30, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Well, Amazon would apparently sell you one, it's probably still in print. As usual, their prices vary wildly depending which country you're in. The UK price (new) is about 15 pounds, the France price is 24 euro, and the US price is 26 dollars. All plus shipping and taxes.LeadSongDog come howl! 20:07, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Private Eye, October 2014[edit]

Does anyone have access to "Go for gold!". Private Eye (1377). 17 October 2014. p. 29.  ?

Can anyone get hold of Mukherjea, Kalyan; Manuel, Peter (2010). "Radhika Mohan Maitra: His Life and Times". Asian Music 41 (2): 180–197. , which seems to be hosted on Project Muse here. Although there are claims that it is also on JSTOR, that place just redirects me to Muse. I'm hoping to use it for improvement of Radhika Mohan Maitra.

EBSCOhost link -- Yuccas: 'Ghosts in the Graveyard'[edit]

I would appreciate a little help from an editor with fulltext access to this newspaper article. I am trying to source an uncited claim I found in the Yucca lead paragraph: "It is also colloquially known in the lower Midwest United States as "ghosts in the graveyard", as it is commonly found growing in rural graveyards and when in bloom the cluster of (usually pale) flowers on a thin stalk appear as floating apparitions." So far this is the only seemingly reliable source I have found for the colloquialism that is not an echo of Wikipedia. Does the above source support both claims (nickname and reason for nickname) in that sentence and is this newspaper/article/author considered a WP:RS ? Thank you. -- (talk) 16:53, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Bravin in Tehran and the origins of Soviet policy in Iran[edit]


Nikolai Zakharovich Bravin (1881–1921) was a Russian diplomat and orientalist, who is noted for being one of the few Tsarist diplomats who was willing to serve the Bolsheviks after the Russian revolution.

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.
