In frame of a general view of proton electromagnetic form factors, two recent findings related to reanalyses of data are presented. Recent experiments in the scattering and in the annihilation region provided us with more precise data and/or extending the kinematical region, allowing a deeper analysis and a common view of these fundamental quantities. We will discuss two issues: the discrepancy between the form factors extracted from unpolarized and polarized ep elastic scattering experiments, in connection with the commonly used dipole parametrization; peculiar oscillations in e+e− → p̄p(γ) annihilation cross section, that become periodical when plotted as a function of the 3-momentum of the relative motion of the final proton and antiproton, after subtraction of a smooth function.
