Amazon Standard Identification Number[edit]

Please add these prefixes: ASIN: to$1. see en:Amazon Standard Identification Number--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Em.. any more article numbers of online sellers, too? --Saibo (Δ) 13:44, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
I would not be inclined to do this, it strikes me as nothing more than adding institutionalized spam for Amazon. Courcelles 03:21, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done: commercial, etc. etc. Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)


Please add these prefixes: bibcode: to$1. see en:Bibcode--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

This is not a wiki, so under the rules above I'm not sure we're still adding such interwikis (the same comment applies to the requests below; they might be all closed together). Anyway, is this the "official bibcode resource"? Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik[edit]

Please add these prefixes: JFM: to$1&format=complete. see en:Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Needed? Can we expect that the URL stays more or less stable or at least always include the "?q=an:$1" part? No conflicts with language codes? --Saibo (Δ) 13:45, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
Also, this is not an open service, it's commercial and requires subscription; seems to be against requirements. Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)


Please add these prefixes: JSTOR: to$1. see en:JSTOR--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Again, commercial and requires subscription; seems to be against requirements. Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
There's already an entry for jstor:. It's set to$1 currently. Should it be changed? --MZMcBride (talk) 03:09, 25 February 2012 (UTC)


Please add these prefixes: ISSN: to$1. see en:ISSN--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Worldcat doesn't "own" the ISSN, I'm not sure we can assign it the interwiki code. Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
Don't understand this comment at all. Interwiki prefixen are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. And the whole point of using interwiki prefixes instead of URLs is that it doesn't tie the link to a particular site. But if the site is a useful resource and allows for direct look-ups, why not? It can always be changed later. --MZMcBride (talk) 19:42, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
My point wasn't about permanency, but if you thin it's ok I don't have particular objections. Nemo 21:48, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Done. --MZMcBride (talk) 19:42, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
There was another question on this sort of requests above, you might want to add a comment there. Nemo 21:48, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Aye, I saw. (This page needs to be archived a bit to be more manageable.) I'm not sure how I feel about JSTOR and some of the other commercial entities. I see a distinction between those (propriety, brand names) and "ISSN", which is more of a standard. While I'd generally agree that a jstor: prefix is silly, it's not as though we don't already have google: and some others. I dunno. --MZMcBride (talk) 23:59, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Mathematical Reviews[edit]

Please add these prefixes: MathR: to$1. see en:Mathematical Reviews--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Again, commercial and requires subscription; seems to be against requirements. Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Online Computer Library Center[edit]

Please add these prefixes: oclc: to$1. see en:Online Computer Library Center--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

PubMed Central[edit]

Please add these prefixes: PMC: to$1. see en:PubMed Central--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)


Please add these prefixes: PMID: to$1. see en:PMID--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Zentralblatt MATH[edit]

Please add these prefixes: ZBL: to$1&format=complete. see en:Zentralblatt MATH--Shizhao 13:28, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

How is this different from #Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik? Nemo 21:28, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
