Proposed deletion of The Rutherford Journal[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article The Rutherford Journal has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Ephemeral journal, no independent references, no indication this meets WP:GNG or WP:NJournals.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Speedy deletion nomination of List of Oxford University Press journals[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on List of Oxford University Press journals requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This page appears to be a direct copy from https://www.oxfordjournals.org/en/our-journals/. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites or other printed material as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Um. This is accurate: it is a G12 copyvio. That said, even if it wasn't, as a bare list I think it might well be considered duplicative of a category. I checked Category:University of Oxford and there currently does not seem to be one, have you considered creating it? That's definitely not a problem for notable publishers. Guy (Help!) 12:33, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
This was created to match List of Cambridge University Press journals. How can a list of journal names be said in your own words [quote from above!]. Do you expect the journal names to be paraphrased from the actual names?! This page was deleted very quickly before I could contest it (I work too!); please send me the source for the page since I spent considerable effort adding the correct Wikipedia links for the journals, thank you. In any case, I believe Oxford University Press would be only too glad to have this public information on Wikipedia. —Jonathan Bowen (talk) 02:32, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Truthfully, I have no idea how you could make it not a like copy of the publisher's own page. That's a bit of a problem. Guy (Help!) 09:56, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
