Special Issue Call for Papers

Early Career Research in e-Government

EJEG is devoting an issue to Early Career Research Papers which focuses on publishing shorter articles from early career researchers and doctoral degree candidates to make their research accessible to a wider audience. Authors (and co-authors) can be current research degree candidates or early career researchers who have completed their research degree within the last five years.

Articles in the Early Career Research issue will generally have a case study orientation and will comprehensively present the research questions, the research process and results. Contributions are welcomed from any topic in the field of e-Government and with any geographical focus. The scope of a case study can vary from trans-national or supranational spaces with virtual boundaries to clearly defined spaces at the national, regional or local level.



Submissions will be evaluated on their originality and quality with a guideline of 3,500–5,000 words for inclusion on this Early Career Research special issue. Using a detailed review process, authors whose papers are accepted will then be supported by a named corresponding editor who will advise and guide the author towards a high-quality article for publication in the journal.
