As these aren't necessarily listed at or easily accessible from the website with the current issue of the paper (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 08:27, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

@Nomen ad hoc: we discussed this on Wikidata:Bistro some time ago. I can't find the topic though. --- Jura 08:27, 6 July 2019 (UTC)


  • Pictogram voting question.svg Question This seems to me overly specific with only one known example. Would not it possible to generalize this quite bit to any kind of publication ? I think it’s already possible to do something like this with like « published content archived at url » ? Or is it assumed this property is for an archive of all the publications of an organisation ? (archive might also refer to the internal documents of an organisation, not supposed to be publics). author  TomT0m / talk page 14:20, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
    • There is already a property for the archives of an organization (P485). This is more of a variation of full work available at (P953). It seems a fairly common usecase for newspapers. How do you usual find them? --- Jura 15:39, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
