  1. Blarcrean (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) (Re-adding as per talk page) I have been a contributor to Wikipedia since 2009 with a modest 2500+edits to my name as well as original articles mainly on Southern African humanities-related subjects - believing that OUP access would prove invaluable for improving materials available in Wikipedia for a relatively neglected part of the world. I would be interested in Scholarship and Journal access if possible. Blarcrean (talk) 21:38, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
    @Blarcrean: Can you explain why you feel Scholarship will be useful? Nikkimaria (talk) 16:08, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
    Blarcrean (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email)A large proportion of my contributions has been biographical, including musical biography, so that the resources available via Scholarship would be useful. BlarcreanBlarcrean (talk) 03:31, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
    @Blarcrean: Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 15:18, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
  2. MrBill3 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Scholarship and Journals. Active in Fringe Theories and Medicine, with contributions in other areas as my interest is aroused. Extensive work on existing references will use to add stronger references and better content as weak references are found in ref cleanup work. Active 4 years, 30,000 edits. - - MrBill3 (talk) 09:11, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
    @MrBill3: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 19:41, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
  3. SheriffIsInTown (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am very much interested in Journals but would like to have access to all three areas. Sheriff (report) 15:25, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
    @SheriffIsInTown: I see you have applied to several different TWL resources - can you explain further how this one in particular will be useful to you? (It'd be a good idea to do that for the others as well). Nikkimaria (talk) 17:13, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
    I got a prompt that i can sign up for these databases and i thought it would be useful for me to sign up since i always struggle to find good sources. I cannot tell what would be different in each database until i am given access to them. Sheriff (report) 20:17, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
    I mostly work on Pakistan related topics and most of them are loaded with unsourced information. Since I don't know what each database actually contains, I thought the more the better.Sheriff (report) 01:07, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
    @SheriffIsInTown: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 19:47, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
  4. Jan D.Berends (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am a generalist and active since 2006 in 25 [projects] with around 1300 global [edits]. Access to the Scholarship and Journals stream would be very useful for improving and verifying articles, specifically for adding (and updating) references.--Jan D. Berends (talk) 11:46, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
    @Jan D. Berends: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 19:41, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
  5. Mahitgar (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email)
    Mainly I do work on mr-wikipedia and main contributor on Copyright aspects on mr-wiki. On en Wikipedia I support select articles namely Ceremonial pole, Legal awareness and related topics I Would like to apply for Scholarship to support Ceremonial pole article. Very few WP:RS resources are available in open so need OUP access to support the article.
    And would like to apply for Law stream to support legal theory articles.
    Thanks and warm regards Mahitgar (talk) 15:19, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
    @Mahitgar: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 20:14, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

    @BoBoMisiu: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 17:33, 13 December 2015 (UTC)
  7. Mel22 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I mainly contribute on art in WP:fr and I could use very frequently the Grove Art Dictionnary and other biographies dictionnary like the Benezit. That's why I would need OUP Scholarship. Thanks a lot. Mel22 (talk) 18:00, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
    @Mel22: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 17:33, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

    @Curlymanjaro: Which of the three streams are you interested in? Nikkimaria (talk) 17:33, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

    @Megalibrarygirl: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 13:55, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
    @Nikkimaria:, hi! I received the email, filled out the form and have not heard anything. Just checking that I didn't miss anything. :) Megalibrarygirl (talk) 17:37, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
    Nope, just waiting on login generation, probably delayed by the holidays. Nikkimaria (talk) 19:34, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
  11. EricEnfermero (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Most of my recent work has been with biographies of academics (particularly in the health sciences and social sciences) and there are still significant gaps in coverage of notable subjects in this area. I am most interested in the Scholarship stream, but I think that Journals would be helpful as well. Thanks! EricEnfermero (Talk) 21:01, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
    @EricEnfermero: Approved Expect a email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 02:57, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
  12. MrLinkinPark333 (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I would like access to the Journals stream to help me with requests at the RX. JSTOR has access to some of these years, but are lacking in some years (e.g. American Historical Review, and Journal of American History). This stream would be helpful for me filling in the holes. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 20:05, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
    @MrLinkinPark333: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 03:32, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
  13. Owlsmcgee (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) Would love to get access to some of these journals relating to religion and Japanese sociology, which are a focus of my current editing. I also edit articles on women and topics related to women that could benefit from access to the OUP. Thanks! Owlsmcgee (talk) 05:41, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
    @Owlsmcgee: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 19:45, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

  15. sbaitz (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I would like to get access to the Scholarship stream, esp. Grove Music Online. I'm working (research, verification, and occasionaly new articles) on music and music history. --Sbaitz (talk) 01:46, 9 January 2016 (UTC)
    @Sbaitz: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 23:24, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
  16. Eperoton (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I would like to get OUP Scholarship access. I'm a somewhat recent but active editor focusing on subjects related to Islam and Late Antiquity. Between my two accounts (this one and msubotin, phased out privacy reasons) I have over a year of Wikipedia experience and over 1000 article edits. OUP Scholarship resources would be very useful. Eperoton (talk) 02:52, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
    @Eperoton: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 23:24, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
  17. Delabrede (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I spend some hours each day doing research on American artists of the 20th century in order to make articles on ones who are under-appreciated. Access to Oxford biographic and art resources would help me provide broad-view summaries in a field of study where most of the available resources are narrow-view and particular, such as news accounts of gallery showings. The Wikipedia library is an excellent tool and I'm glad to have the opportunity to apply for access. -- Delabrede (talk) 15:02, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
    @Delabrede: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 14:55, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
  18. jpbowen (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am interested in the Scholarship stream, especially ODNB for biographical entries, and the Journals stream as an academic, especially with respect to computer science, the arts, and museums. I am a long-term Wikipedia editor since 2005, based in Oxford and officially retired but currently editing a book to be published by OUP. — Jonathan Bowen (talk) 12:21, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
    @Jpbowen: Approved Expect an email shortly with further details. Nikkimaria (talk) 14:55, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
  19. Signedzzz (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I would be interested in using the scholarship and journals streams. I edit a wide variety of topics, including music and history. My sources are generally limited to abstracts of papers where available, and whatever Google books free view allows. zzz (talk) 18:52, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
