Article Lead[edit]

Lead to article could be improved by a concise definition of Network governance. At the moment it has many synonyms and a large quote from a reference.Jonpatterns (talk) 11:54, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

There is no consise definition of network governance. The article should rather have an overview of different definitions. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.156.29.214 (talk) 09:45, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

The explanation is clear and concise. There is a lack of grammatical errors, which is good. On one heading there needs to be capitalization applied because it is still lowercase. Overall it was very clear and helps a reader get an understanding as to what the topic is. CarBut13 (talk) 16:03, 18 April 2016 (UTC)


The first paragraph there are quotation marks missing and the end of a sentence. The definition and the 3 points made really show what network governance means. The historical timeline flows all together and tied its relevancy to your article. It is a little lengthy but is esssential because of the examples network governance was used. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Danielle.ayala13 (talkcontribs) 18:13, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

the information is well written and clearly stated. the material covered has sufficient resources. Breaking up the information throughout the article helps with organizational flow and makes it easier to read. within each divided section there are reliable sources that prove that the article is academic and scholarly.some opinions are stated but aren't forced on the readers. overall the article is clear and written in a professional manner. Great Job!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sarahhhc11 (talkcontribs) 19:20, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

The article currently has numerous problems with WP:TONE e.g. use of first-person pronouns ("our"), several gaps in referencing. Overall, the prose seems to overly resemble an essay or textbook chapter, something that is problematic on Wikipedia (WP:NOTESSAY, WP:NOTTEXTBOOK). Dl2000 (talk) 23:38, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
