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 to a requester using the Special:EmailUser feature but for attachments, you need to ask them to mail you first so you can reply.

Source review from Lexis Nexis and ProQuest[edit]

I use a few Lexis Nexis and ProQuest citations in Deathrow (video game), which is up at FAC: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Deathrow (video game)/archive1. Can someone with access do a quick review that the prose accurately reflects those sources? (Newyorkadam?) czar  04:13, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

@Czar: Out of the two ProQuest sources, I have access to one, "The Grand Old Game vs. Down-and-Dirty Combat". I can't find the other in my search but I'll keep trying. I'll sourcecheck the one I found with the article later. -Newyorkadam (talk) 12:00, 1 May 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam
Czar Why don't you just save copies of the two sources as PDFs, stick them in a dropbox, and link to them at the FAC? That's certainly easier on the reviewers. Sven Manguard Wha? 21:28, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
@Sven Manguard: I actually did do that, but I thought completely independent verification would be more forthcoming czar  21:33, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Architecture thesis request[edit]

I'm looking for a copy of a thesis that is at the University of Vermont. It is "Blueprints for progress : General Houses, Inc., and the modern prefabricated house, 1932-40 / by Douglas K. Royalty."Link I'm working on Howard T. Fisher and I would like to do an article on General Houses, Inc. I first became aware of Royalty's work through the involvement to restore the House at 130 Mohegan Avenue - which is a GA of mine. Having this source could be quite helpful in connecting the dots to other sources about a "Howard T. Fisher", a Harvard professor. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 20:05, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately this doesn't appear to be in the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database and the only library in Worldcat to own a physical copy is the University of Vermont. Gamaliel (talk) 17:15, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels , lookup[edit]


Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels: A Compendium of Contemporary Biblical Scholarship Volume 6 of The IVP Bible Dictionary Series Editors Joel B. Green, Scot McKnight, I. Howard Marshall Publisher InterVarsity Press, 1992 ISBN 0830817778, 9780830817771

On gbooks, I get no preview. Can a brother please send or check whatever is on page 37, and how it relates to, Magdala, Tiberias, Cana and any road between them (as per Josephus)? --trespassers william (talk) 22:40, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

I'm not 100% clear on what you're requesting – might it be the following quotation? "Cana was a strategically vital center on the Roman road from Ptolemais (Akko) on the Mediterranean to Magdala on the Sea of Galilee (Josephus Life 16 §86)." That seems to be the only mention of a road between those settlements, but there's more in-depth discussion of the them and of Tiberias on pages 36–8. I would upload a PDF but I'm not clear on the legal acceptability or technical feasibility of doing so from Google Books. Let me know if that's any use or what else you're looking for. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 10:52, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. This page is a ref about the road at Al-Majdal:[2] but I just can't see how the Josephus cite [3] supports it. See User talk:Tiamut#Al-Majdal / Cana. Does the dictionary give a clearer picture?. PS DownThemAll make a lot of things more feasible. trespassers william (talk) 14:49, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
That will do, thank you. trespassers william (talk) 22:00, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Swazi phonology[edit]

At Swazi language, the phonology section was both incomplete and, according to basic descriptions of the language in other sources, incorrect. I deleted the table, and added a bit of info I could see in Taljaard et al. (1991) Handbook of SiSwati at GBooks. Is anyone here able to access the sound-inventory section of that book? Swazi is a national language, so it would be nice to have at least some of the basics. — kwami (talk) 01:55, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi user:Kwamikagami, looks like no one answered this -- the book appears to be held at UC Berkeley in print, so you might contact user:Kevin Gorman who is a Wikipedian in Residence there. -- phoebe / (talk to me) 23:30, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

A 1980s MyCDJournal article[edit]

Italian source needs verifying[edit]

Hi, I am working on improving the Italian invasion of France article. An editor (who is quickly developing a bad reputation) has claimed that the below source states the following "Italy's limited incursion into south-eastern France had been, despite initial setbacks, relatively successful from a military, strategic and political point of view." (pulled from the article, so not a direct quote although considering some of this editors comments it maybe).

Source: Zamagni, V (ed), Come Pedere la Pace e Vincere la Guerra, Il Mulino, Bologna, 1997

I do not have access to this source and from what I have found online, using google translate, the intro states that the book is an economic history of the 1940s and 1950s with six essays from six different economic historians. The editor has refused to provide any additional information, and considering the editors problems and the fact that the majority of historians disagree with what the source apparently states, this information needs to be verified.

The editor claims that the above information is on page 53. If anyone has access to this source, can they please clarify:

  • If the above is actually stated on page 53
  • If so, why (what is the greater context)?
  • If so, which of the six historians actually makes this claim

Regards, --EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 21:28, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Looks like the title was wrong, if the reference is to

Vera Zamagni Come perdere la guerra e vincere la pace : l'economia italiana tra guerra e dopoguerra : 1938-1947 Bologna : Il mulino (1997) OCLC 36728937

Thank you for clarifying the title of the source in question.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 17:59, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Proquest article request[edit]


Looking for this article from the Hartford Courant for Willie Hoppe, available from Proquest, for verification purposes and possibly expansion. What it's cited for currently sounds highly dubious to me considering he was not predominantly a pocket billiards player at all.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 04:21, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

The source says: "He probably was the only billiard player ever to give an exhibition in the White House." No reference to pocket billiards. John M Baker (talk) 21:23, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
@John M Baker: Ah, thanks much. Shows how careful you must be in your assumptions to not engage in original research. Billiards? Yes. Pocket billiards? Highly unlikely – but the person who sourced this probably doesn't know the difference. At least "probably" was kept in, which was a good hedge in the source, but wrong because he was not the only billiards player to give an exhibition at the white house, and if I remember, Ralph Greenleaf did as well.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 22:42, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Reference work articles on Soka Gakkai[edit]

This is basically a request for any articles/pieces from what might be called "reference works" broadly defined on the topic of Soka Gakkai. By which I mean about SG itself, not about any particular members, leaders, etc. Such articles available to anyone who has one or more of the databank subscriptions in particular would be most welcome. There seems to be some significant problems of trying to shoehorn to much information into too few articles on the subject as is, and knowing what sort of spinout articles are reasonable and meet notability requirements would be extremely useful. John Carter (talk) 21:31, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

News archive search requested and possibly Lexis/Westlaw for Minnesota Fats article[edit]

Google News Archive being useless, lo now these many, many months, is really painful. Regarding Minnesota Fats, a source I've come across writes that Wanderone actually sued Tevis and possibly Twentieth Century Fox, or vice versa, whereas most sources just state that a lawsuit was threatened. It says the "court battle made front page news across the nation for several weeks in 1962". I want the skinny on this lawsuit, if it existed, for the article. A or similar search would be great, maybe pegging 1962 and using tevis wanderone as the search grist; a Lexis/Westlaw search would be great as well, especially if there's an opinion (though even if there was a lawsuit, it's not unlikely it never made it to the appellate level).--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 23:13, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

@Fuhghettaboutit: I'm skeptical that there was a lawsuit brought by Rudolf or Rudolph Wanderone (our article and your source say "Rudolf," but the newspaper articles all seem to say "Rudolph"), the man who claimed that the fictional character "Minnesota Fats" was based on him. There was nothing relevant on Westlaw, although I wouldn't necessarily expect there to be even if a suit had been filed. More to the point, searches of ProQuest Historical Newspapers and Newspaper Archive found a few articles, in 1961, 1962, and 1964, that referred to a suit brought by Wanderone, but these are just passing references, obviously based on statements by Wanderone and lacking basic information such as the court and the name of his lawyer. A 1966 article, written under the assumption that Wanderone was the original Minnesota Fats, said, "When Gleason came out as Minnesota Fats, the genuine article cried foul and there was talk of law suits, but there also was a lot of free publicity and now things couldn't be better." Clifton Terry, Minnesota Fats, Chicago Tribune (Jan. 2, 1966). That sounds to me like the suit never got past the talking stage. In any case, it's obviously untrue that the court battle made front page news across the nation in 1962. If you want the articles, email me and I'll reply with PDFs. John M Baker (talk) 13:14, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
@John M Baker: Hey John. Got your message. A bit weird: I wrote a response to you here weeks ago and thought I saved it but obviously not – probably got a "loss of session data" message. Anyway, thanks for the searches! You've confirmed my suspicion that the outlier source got it wrong and that it was just threatened. I would have loved to see that lawsuit if it had been brought. Wanderone would have put on a three ring circus.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 23:42, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm trying to find a good copy of Recursive Form of the Eigensystem Realization Algorithm for System Identification by Longman and Juang in Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics, Sept.-Oct. 1989, Vol. 12, No. 5 : pp. 647-652.

A PDF is easy to find on Google, but it contains many typesetting errors (automated OCR?), and from a preview on another site I see that they are not in the original and they change some of the symbols in the equations.

Hey John. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it. A bit disappointing, though, that it turned out to be an SSDI listing rather than an obituary (after all, it was published by Union-News). OscarL 00:26, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, there was also an obituary, of sorts, in the Union-News, but there wasn't much to it, so I didn't think you would be interested. As I look at it, though, I see it states a different birth year, which would certainly be relevant to longevity research. Here it is. John M Baker (talk) 14:11, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Need to verify some information on Jezreel (city). Specifically I'm looking to verify:

"The fortress enclosed an area of almost 11 acres (45,000 m2). It was 860' long and 470' wide, and defended by a steep slope to the north and a moat 20' deep and rampart on the other three sides."

The editor @Gil72: asked me for help in trying to verify this information, and while I was able to find an online source, the article is behind a paywall.

Edward Said lookup[edit]

Said, Edward W. & Hitchens, Christopher (eds) Blaming the Victims: spurious scholarship and the Palestinian Question. London: Verso (2001) ISBN 1-85984-340-9 page 199.

Please share the page or tell me what it says about Transjordan. Used in Palestine#cite ref-Said 61-0. --trespassers william (talk) 22:53, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

@Danny lost: "Whereas Palestinian Arabs (and other Arabs as well) accepted a de facto definition of Palestine as the territory so carved by the British Mandate in which the specific Palestinian aspiration for a territorial state took concrete form – an acceptance now enshrined in Articles 1 and 2 of the Palestinian National Charter – the Zionist/Israeli definition is more flexible and broader." That summary of the argument put forward in previous pages seems to be the relevant sentence; the gist of the page is that Israelis/Zionists tend to think Palestine includes the Transjordan (which allows them to argue that the state of Jordan is a Palestinian state) but the definition used by Palestinians/Arabs (and the PNC) maps on to the borders of the British Mandate. (The citation in the Palestine article isn't strictly accurate either; page 199 is part of the chapter by Ibrahim Abu-Lughod entitled "Territorially-based Nationalism and the Politics of Negation" [pp. 193–206].) – Arms & Hearts (talk) 14:35, 11 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)

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).

California historical news search (1980s-1990s) on Planet Pizza[edit]

Hi, I'd like to find sources on Planet Pizza, a Cupertino, California-based pizza chain that competed with Chuck E. Cheez from 1981 until 1998 (bankruptcy) and 1999 (out of business). Does someone have access to Los Angeles Times historical news, or other California historical news sources that could help? I have already searched WSJ and NYT historical news, and recent news coverage, per my comments in an ongoing AFD. This relates to article Planet Pizza and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Planet Pizza. It would help either to develop the article or help conclude the AFD, if California historic sources could be searched.

I haven't used this noticeboard / request board before, hope this request is done properly. I don't believe this is any kind of inappropriate canvassing; i am just on this rare occasion looking for specialized research help that i can't do myself. My gut tells me there is plenty of past coverage; I sorta think i read about it myself when living in California during part of that timeframe. I participate in a lot of AFDs, do not expect to be asking questions here about others.

I'll watch here and learn more about this request board. Seems like a good service! Thanks in advance for any assistance. --doncram 21:47, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

@Doncram: I've searched ProQuest (including the L.A. Times beginning in 1985), Newspaper Archive, Highbeam, and Newsbank, and the lack of news coverage for "Planet Pizza" in California in the period from 1981 to 1999 is truly impressive. Although there was a report in the Marysville Yuba City Appeal Democrat of a judgment debtor abstract out of Sutter County Municipal Court for $356.25 on behalf of Quick Stop and Planet Pizza.

I can see pages 74–78 on Google Books but it looks like Van Evrie is also mentioned on page 79, which I'm missing, and possibly elsewhere (I'm also lacking the index). I'd like to be able to see page 79 and any other pages mentioning Van Evrie, but if anyone's able to confirm that there are none and/or that page 79 is just a trivial mention that'd be great too. Hopefully that's not too vague – thanks. – Arms & Hearts (talk) 00:10, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
