- NPOV as description not prescription
- Systemic Bias of Wikipedia
- Natural point of view
- NPOV is an ideal
- Consensus editing
- Meatball Wiki take on NPOV and Wikipedia
- South Slavic NPOV page
- If NPOV is science, how do I deal with cases where the US 'science' is at odds with at least 80% of the world?
