Fixing references and common medical problems!

Finding a source [ edit ]

Tips for finding a source yourself
  • Send a request to the author(s) of research papers for a copy of their paper by email
  • Check on Google Books, or your local library or national library may be able to obtain it through an interlibrary loan or subscription
  • Search Google Scholar for archived copies of journals in institutional repositories
  • Check whether your alma mater's library offers electronic document delivery services for alumni—many do, for a small fee

Note that sites like LibGen and Sci-Hub offer direct, free access to a very large range of publications, but there are legal questions around their use and neither the Wikimedia Foundation nor the Wikipedia community endorses them.

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 perform full book copy requests due to copyright. Please ask for specific pages that relate to the article(s) you need them for
  • 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.
  • Once a request has been fulfilled add the {{Resolved}} template.
  • Filled requests are archived.
  • Requests unfilled after three months will be archived

Fulfilling a request [ edit ]

  • Anyone may offer advice and fulfill requests.
  • 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://... )
    • share scans of pages or documents using a file-sharing service, provided it is legal
    • upload out of copyright works to Wikimedia Commons and/ or Wikisource (but be careful that this does not breach your own institution's policies)
    • 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.

Copyright tips:

  • Respect copyrights and terms of services of any online services you use.
  • Share content in a limited manner that is targeted at as few individuals as possible to achieve a specific improvement on Wikipedia. All content is shared under a presumed non-commercial, educational, fair use purpose in order to conduct research about topics on Wikipedia and/or to improve Wikipedia content.
  • Share copies privately rather than with a publicly accessible link whenever possible. Copyrighted articles from print publications or copies obtained through online databases should not be uploaded for unrestricted distribution via open websites. Preferably, do not share login access codes for entire websites; rather, share only an individual copy of a resource.
  • Remember that you take on the individual risk when sharing content, and act in a way that is comfortable and safe for you. Individual editors are solely responsible for sharing copyrighted content and assume all legal risks.

Request for extracts from Tusa and Royal's recent book on artefacts from the site of the Battle of the Aegates [ edit ]

There is a recently published book:

  • Royal, Jeffrey G.; Tusa, Sebastiano, eds. (2019). The Site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the End of the First Punic War. Fieldwork, Analyses and Perspectives, 2005–2015. Bibliotheca Archaeologica. 60. Rome: L'Erma di Bretschneider. ISBN 9788891318329.

From this I would like the six pages of:

  • Tusa, S; Goold, J (2019). "Archaeological finds as true evidences of the Egadi battle". In Royal, Jeffrey G.; Tusa, Sebastiano (eds.). The Site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the End of the First Punic War. Fieldwork, Analyses and Perspectives, 2005–2015. Bibliotheca Archaeologica. 60. Rome: L'Erma di Bretschneider. pp. 13–18. ISBN 9788891318329.

and the chapter:

  • Murray, William (2019). "The warships: construction and tactics". In Royal, Jeffrey G.; Tusa, Sebastiano (eds.). The Site of the Battle of the Aegates Islands at the End of the First Punic War. Fieldwork, Analyses and Perspectives, 2005–2015. Bibliotheca Archaeologica. 60. Rome: L'Erma di Bretschneider. pp. 253–290. ISBN 9788891318329.

for Battle of the Aegates, which I am working up for a FAC.

Many thanks, Gog the Mild (talk) 12:53, 16 January 2020 (UTC)

Right now it looks like there is only one library holding of this book (OCLC 1012608445 and OCLC 1108887480). That will make it hard for RXers to find. buidhe 13:35, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Ah. That would explain my difficulties in tracking it down. There is a preview of the 2019 edition here including the title page, if that helps. Gog the Mild (talk) 14:03, 16 January 2020 (UTC)
Gog the Mild: believe it or not, I live only about an hour away and should be able to track down this book sooner or later if you still want it (probably later because libraries around me are shut down for the foreseeable future). Eddie891TalkWork 01:58, 7 April 2020 (UTC)
Eddie891, that would be great. But please don't put yourself out for it. This source may contain some interesting and usable information, but it is by no means vital to the article. You may want to check ahead that it is actually available - there only being one copy available in a library in the world sounds a little odd to me. Thanks.

Takeoff! [ edit ]

I started a stub article on the novel Takeoff! including the one source that I had, and based on the ISFDB link for this novel[1] there are reviews in at least the following:

  1. Review by Spider Robinson (1980) in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact, August 1980
  2. Review by Tom Easton (1980) in Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact, October 1980
  3. Review by Baird Searles (1980) in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, November 1980
  4. Review by Steve Brown (1980) in Thrust, #15, Summer 1980
  5. Review by Tom Staicar (1981) in Amazing Stories, May 1981
  6. Review by Donald M. Hassler (1986) in Fantasy Review, October 1986

If anyone can find copies of any of those reviews, to either provide me with a copy or to add information directly to the article if interested, that would be appreciated! :) BOZ (talk) 14:29, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

@BOZ: #4 (Thrust #15, Summer 1980) is available online at the Internet Archive (see page 44). —Bruce1eetalk 17:25, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
@BOZ: Archives of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine issues can be found here while Amazing Stories are here. While Analog Science Fiction is here, 1980 is not covered. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:05, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
@Neopeius and Mike Christie: Do either of you have the above sources, or different sources that would help with the article? Kees08 (Talk) 16:27, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Bruce1ee and MrLinkinPark333, I added something from those three reviews to the article. :) BOZ (talk) 20:54, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, BOZ and Kees08, not sure how I missed this ping -- I only noticed it because I was on this page looking for something else. I've checked and I do still have the two 1980 Analog issues, but they're in a box somewhere in the basement and I've no idea which one. I'll try to remember to let you know when they eventually come out, probably later this year. I don't have any copies of Fantasy Review, and a quick look through my references finds nothing. According to Google Books there's a short review in Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Review Annual 1988, edited by Latham and Collins.

UK Sources for Edward Osmond to verify date of death / place of death [ edit ]

Hello. I'm looking for UK newspaper sources on Edward Osmond, an author/illustrator that won the 1953 Carnegie Medal winner. Mainly, I'd like to verify his date of death/place of death as these sources say 1981 in Sussex. However, searches in / don't give me any results. I also don't have any access to British newspaper archives. If any results also talk about his teaching career, like at Something about the author, that would be nice as well. However, my main concern is Date of death / place of death.

Thanks! MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 18:28, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

MrLinkinPark333, if you are interested I can send you the article on Osmond from Gale Literature: Contemporary Authors, although unfortunately it does not include the date or place of death. John M Baker (talk) 20:28, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
@John M Baker: I already have that one with the Internet Archive], just haven't cited it yet. Thanks for the offer though! --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:45, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
@John M Baker: I am having problems with the Wikipedia Library at this moment; any way you can check The Times to see if there is mention of his death? Kees08 (Talk) 16:25, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Funny Car [ edit ]

On page 28 it is stated a 1964 Dodge Coronet is used. Wikipedia's article says the Coronet was not made until 1965, although it could have been made in 1964 even if it was a 1965 model.

For the record, I do have access to the full text (as the author), I am just wondering if there is any open access archive. I wonder if I could publish the text myself, I have not signed any copyright transfer agreement, I just sent a pdf to the newspaper and they published it after minor copyediting, so I think I am still the copyright holder for the text...? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:39, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

I am uncertain if anyone could track down this rather old magazine issue, but I thought I might as well try.

Indy beetle, I do not have access to that database but I do have access to the print volume where "a version of this article originally appeared" (Dictionary of African biography, 2012). My experience from other Oxford Reference databases is that they mostly contain identical copies of the printed articles, but I am not familiar with the African American Studies Center specifically. Feel free to respond to this comment if you are interested in a copy from the printed version. — Pajz (talk) 08:44, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
@Pajz: A copy of the article from the print addition would be most welcome. -Indy beetle (talk) 09:46, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
Indy beetle, unfortunately, the print edition does not seem to contain such an entry. Might be an "online-first" update to the dictionary (to be included in some future edition). In that case the "A version of this article originally appeared in The Dictionary of African Biography" bit seems a bit misleading ... Anyhow, looks like you'll need to wait for someone with electronic access. — Pajz (talk) 16:35, 26 May 2020 (UTC)

2008 newspaper sources to confirm death of Leo Gurko [ edit ]

Hello. I'm looking for 2008 newspapers to determine date of death/place of death for my draft on Leo Gurko. I have a December 14, 2010 source from The Ukiah Daily Journal that gives only years for him and his wife's death. His wife's year of death (1988) checks out with her entry in the Salem Press Biographical Encyclopedia. If this is the case, then I hope there is a 2008 newspaper source that mentions his death. As he moved from Poland and worked in New York for a lot of his career, there could be sources from New York newspapers. Unfortunately, i had no luck with Thanks! MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:50, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

MrLinkinPark333, I don’t see any newspaper sources, but according to America’s GenealogyBank, Gurko was born January 4, 1914, and died in Manhattan on September 30, 2008. There are also articles from Something About the Author and Gale Literature: Contemporary Authors, if you are interested. John M Baker (talk) 03:40, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
@John M Baker: I already have both encylopedias from (haven't cited them yet). Neither had his death date of the versions I found. As for GenealogyBank, I haven't used that before, and I don't think I could use it for a source. But that can help narrow down the search though. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:44, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
@MrLinkinPark333: The information from America’s GenealogyBank is directly from U.S. Social Security records, so I would think it would be acceptable, subject to the usual caveats on use of a primary source. It would be unacceptable for a biography of a living person, but of course Gurko is no longer living. John M Baker (talk) 18:07, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
@John M Baker: While I'm not sure if I could use it, could you send me the GenealogyBank entry with the URL? I don't have access to it. I might keep this open as well in case someone digs up a September/October 2008 article. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:58, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Update: I have received the GenealogyBank entry. I'm keeping this up a bit in case someone else has found newspaper sources cause I'm not 100% if I can use this source for a death date. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 22:45, 16 April 2020 (UTC)

I need 10 pages belonging to the chapter "Systematische Artenliste der Amphibien und Reptilien Europas und der europäischen Atlantischen Inseln" and one page with regards to geographical limits of Europe accepted in the book (I guess it's the beginning of "Geografische Abgrenzung" chapter) describing geographical limits in order to complete the list about European reptiles in Ukrainian Wiki. Unfortunately, a similar project is almost dead there so I hope to obtain international help here).

There's also a similar request concerning

  • Axel Kwet (2015). Reptilien und Amphibien Europas (in German). Franckh-Kosmos. p. 352. ISBN 978-3440146194.


Once again, I need just those pages with a checklist (if there's any, because I couldn't find any preview of the book) and described geographical limits. Anyway, the priority book is that of Dieter Glandt.

TV Guide article about Joanne Jordan (talent agent) [ edit ]

  • Alexander, Zoë (2008-06-02). "She's Booking Ben Affleck!". TV Guide. Vol. 56 no. 22. ISSN 0039-8543.

The source is used in Joanne Jordan (talent agent) to verify this content:

In a 2008 article, TV Guide referred to Jordan as the "force behind" the "I'm F-ing Ben Affleck" video, and in the same article Jimmy Kimmel quipped, "I wish I'd had her in high school when I was looking for a date to the prom."

For Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Central Talent Booking, I merged this material from Central Talent Booking to Joanne Jordan (talent agent) using this version of the Central Talent Booking article but would like to confirm whether this offline source is accurate and to see if there is more biographical information that could be used.

page 194 of 香港利氏家族史 (Chinese version of Profit, victory & sharpness : the Lees of Hong Kong by Vivienne Poy, published by University of Hong Kong Press) [ edit ]

For Hong Kong Japanese School - I want to find the Chinese name of the "Ling Ying Building" (where the Japanese school was first located) but Google Books will not allow me to view page 194, which I believe should have the Chinese characters for that.

Thanks, WhisperToMe (talk) 16:34, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: it might refer to zh:嶺英中學. Searching Ling Ying in led to me an article LING YING SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY on Hong Kong Daily Press, 1939-06-02, which said the school had premises in the Lee Gardens (利園), which is exactly Lee family's properties. The zhwiki article says the school was closed in 1970. I guess its premises were used for the Japanese school then.
You should verify this with better sources or alumni from that period.--Roy17 (talk) 17:36, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
@Roy17: I'm not in the HK region right now, but I'm checking online sources. zh:香港日本人學校 already states "1971年(昭和46年)4月12日 - 學生人數増加,要借附近的嶺英校舍,一部(幼稚園部、小學1、2年)到該處上課。同年5月10日,設立香港日本人學校新校舍建設準備委員會。" so that seems to be the right track. WhisperToMe (talk) 17:39, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

A magazine article and encyclopedia entry for M. B. Goffstein [ edit ]

Hello. I'm planning to make an article on children's author and illustrator M. B. Goffstein. I'd like the following sources so I don't have to reuse the same encyclopedia sources I found on the Internet Archive over and over: *This article from Children's Literature in Education from Springer

It seems questionable that the quality of a photograph in a 1916 Indian journal would be to be that much higher than what we already have. While it is of course a possibility, for many journals from that time and provenance that Commons copy would be a perfectly accurate representation of how their pictures looked in print ... — Pajz (talk) 07:29, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

Article in L'Ethnographie volume 55 [ edit ]

For Samdzimari. The URL above is the truncated GBooks entry. Access to the full journal seems to only be available online here, but it costs 30€ and I'd rather not pay that just to find out there's nothing more in it than the couple sentences in the GBooks scan. I'm hoping someone here has access to it. Please ping; I'm not watching this page. Thanks, ♠PMC(talk) 10:48, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Premeditated Chaos, I was just about to place a hold on the volume, but it confuses me a little that the two matching pages that your Google Books search brings up are, according to Google's (admittedly fallible) page detection magic, pp 59 and 61, yet the article that you request starts on p 64. Did you notice that? — Pajz (talk) 20:20, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Hi Pajz I did notice, and for some reason I decided it was the Roux article anyway...crap, I did all this digging last night at work and now I forget what led me to conclude that the content was in Roux's article, not Fraysse's before it. I think what gave me pause is that Fraysse's article is about sorcery in Western France, which AFAIK has zero connection to the Caucasus culturally or geographically. Whereas Roux's article is about nomads in Southern Turkey, which is...somewhat closer to the Caucasus in both senses. Would it be possible for you to send both articles? ♠PMC(talk) 23:33, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Pajz, after a little bit more research I've figured out that I'm a fool. Please forgive me. I completely didn't take into account that the Google book I linked above contained four volumes of L'Ethnographie, not just vol 55. I realize that the paper I wanted is actually in vol 54 - it's "Travail et mort dans la montagne géorgienne." by Georges Charachidzé, L’Ethnographie 54: 45-62. Facepalm Facepalm I should have realized from the start that the only French guy writing about Caucasian mythology in 1960 had to have been Charachidzé. Is it possible to ask you to send over that paper? I'll do my best to find somewhere to cite the papers you did send me so your original effort doesn't go in vain. ♠PMC(talk) 19:18, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Premeditated Chaos, ok, no worries. I've ordered the volume to the reading room. My next visits are tomorrow (unlikely it will have arrived by then) and on Tuesday. — Pajz (talk) 20:58, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

Tiger Sarll at [ edit ]

For Draft:Captain Tiger Sarll

Does someone have access to this death regard record for the subject at (Please ping me in your response.) Thanks! —[AlanM1 (talk)]— 06:44, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

@AlanM1: Just a heads-up, Wikipedia:Reliable sources/Perennial sources has labelled "generally unreliable" as it uses primary source documents (as opposed to reliable, independent, 3rd party sources) and user-generated content. —Bruce1eetalk 08:29, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
@AlanM1 and Bruce1ee: Primary sources are useful and reliable if they're used properly (a scanned death record, if used for nothing more than to give the date of death and other basic info, certainly falls into this - and in many cases it could be the most reliable source). Alternatively if you can't find a death record, a gravestone (if you know where the subject is buried, such as in this case) can also be an option. Cheers, RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 15:42, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
@RandomCanadian: You're right, primary sources can be useful. I'm just quoting what Perennial sources has to say about, because article reviewers sometimes use that page to assess the reliability of sources. —Bruce1eetalk 16:51, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
@Bruce1ee: I'm aware of RSP; I in fact just recently quoted the very same entry in response to an edit request :) Cheers, RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 17:00, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

@Bruce1ee and RandomCanadian: Just to clarify, what I'm after is a public record, a primary source usable as the only available source for the subject's date of death (after some searching, though I am surprised at that, given his life). Ancestry is simply the repository in this case. Is there another source for this particular database? —[AlanM1 (talk)]— 17:11, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

@AlanM1: To be clear, the requested source (and all that has) is only an index. It is not an actual death certificate, and does not contain a date of death. Registration took place at local civil registrars who in turn reported to the General Register Office (GRO) in London. I assume that there could be some delay between local and national registration. There may also have been some delay between death and local registration. Finally, note that the district listed is where the death was registered, which is not necessarily where the death occurred. Keeping all that in mind, the England & Wales, Civil Registration Death Index, 1916-2007, published by the General Register Office, records that his death was registered in the third quarter (July-August-September) of 1977. Email me if you would like a scan of the index page. You can use the information from the index to order a copy of the death certificate from the GRO. --Worldbruce (talk) 14:04, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: I think we can reasonably state, then, a year of death of 1977 with the cite at the top. As long as you've seen it (and I've seen the teaser it gave me in the search), that seems sufficient. It seems that others have expressed issues with uploading of source docs to Commons because of the potential of them being doctored, so I think we're OK without opening that bag of worms. Face-smile.svg Thanks. —[AlanM1 (talk)]— 14:23, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
@Worldbruce: Can we at least say the death occurred in the UK, or do UK citizen deaths anywhere in the world come back to the GRO to be registered? —[AlanM1 (talk)]— 14:28, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
@AlanM1:You can do what you like with the source. I wouldn't state more than that his death was recorded at the General Register Office in the third quarter of 1977, per WP:PRIMARYCARE. My caveats above are drawn from what says about the source. I'm not knowledgeable enough about UK death recording or Sarll to intelligently debate what Wikipedia can reasonably say. Any discussion of that should take place on the draft's talk page. Please mark this thread {{resolved}} so that the bot will archive it, if you've received what narrow assistance the Resource Exchange can provide. --Worldbruce (talk) 15:43, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
@AlanM1 and Worldbruce: I can confirm his death-date for you from another Ancestry-hosted source - the index to the National Probate Calendar has "SARLL, Thomas William Henry of The Oasis, Caidge Row, Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex, died 8 July 1977." The probate index does not give place of death at this point so that point can't be confirmed, but at least you have a date. Andrew Gray (talk) 16:05, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
