GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:Sociology in Poland/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

The article does not meet the Good Article criteria, and cannot be listed at the present time. It is incomplete (criterion #3), and has many flaws in the prose. A good copyedit is needed, as there are many missing commas and other punctuation, and the text doesn't flow very well in places (criterion #1). All reference citations used by the article are citing from only three sources, which is an issue with criterion #2 (verifiability); it also raises serious red flags with the completeness criterion (#3), as well as possibly WP:NPOV issues in that some sources may have been omitted because the editors did not agree with the particular philosophy of those sources' authors.

On the plus side, I don't really see any edit warring, so criterion #5 is ok. But the one image in the article has a deprecated image tag, and therefore does not meet criterion #6. So this must be fixed prior to GA.

Overall, I cannot pass the article in its present form. It appears that there is much research to be done here. Good luck. Dr. Cash (talk) 20:06, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Unsourced and biased text[edit]

  • "Both Marxist and Jewish sociologists, however, have been subjected to persecution at different stages in Poland's history." - A masterpiece of fuzzy language. Who was persecuted, by whom, when? A statement "Non-Marxists sociologists have been subjected to persecution in Poland's history" is also true, but not included.
  • "Zygmunt Bauman, a Polish-born sociologist and perhaps one of the most renowned theorists working today, was forced to flee to England in 1971 due to an anti-Semitic government campaign." Bauman wasn't only "Polish-born". He studied in Poland and worked on Warsaw University. He emigrated to Israel and later moved to England, which is somethiung different. In another place the same editor wrote about "Nazi" politics in Poland. It was Khrushtchev time Communism, not Nazism.Xx236 (talk) 12:52, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
