Governance and policies: Policies are the explicit normative standards which guide activities in Wikipedia. There are five core policies, known as the Five Pillars of Wikipedia: 1) Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia; 2) Wikipedia is written from a neutral point of view; 3) Wikipedia is free content that anyone can edit, use, modify, and distribute; 4) Editors should interact with each other in a respectful and civil manner; and 5) Wikipedia does not have firm rules. In addition, there is a plethora of other policies derived from the five pillars, sometimes complementing, and even ridiculing them.

Governance refers to development and application of policies. The most common approach for studies focusing on Wikipedia governance is on policing: how policies are enforced in the community and how order is maintained.
