I removed the English alias "location" from this property, because I am concerned that when people are looking for a "geographical location" property they will get this property as a result, and not look any closer. I've seen this happen with similar setups like "parent taxon" being used for "parent" (which we don't actually have). Espeso (talk) 20:04, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Ok. (I've just added it, because "location" is used by the templates.) --Kolja21 (talk)

First editions only?[edit]

Is there a reason this needs to be restricted to first editions? Can qualifiers simply be used to indicate subsequent editions if it they are notably published in a different location? If not, then perhaps the label should be changed to 'place of first edition publication' to better identify this limitation. Joshbaumgartner (talk) 06:12, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

My feeling is that this is going to be extended, as I just did, for publication in those instances. See Q3303832 for example. I think the limitation exists more for books than anything else. --Izno (talk) 16:52, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
I am going to change this, there is no limitation for books as long as the "place of publication" is used in the right "edition item". See Wikidata:Books task force for more details.--Micru (talk) 18:04, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Use as qualifier[edit]

This property is occasionally being used as a qualifier to publication date (P577). (For example, Q11168.) Is this correct? --Yair rand (talk) 12:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Probably more correct. Seems to me that a new edition of a text could be published elsewhere... but I guess that use case for us is covered since we create a new item. --Izno (talk) 13:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
