Aims and Scope

The Electronic Journal of e-Government is intended to provide perspectives on topics relevant to the field of e-Government and web-enabling technology in the public sector. Through its publication the journal aims to contribute to the development of both theory and practice. The journal will accept academically robust papers that contribute to the area e-Government, including, but not limited to the following topics:

  • e-Government transaction sites
  • webocracy
  • e-Democracy
  • security and confidentiality
  • integrated systems

  • web-enabled knowledge management
  • other ICT enabled systems in the public service sector

Every paper submitted to the journal is blind-refereed by two members of the editorial board or other suitably qualified readers. The Editor reserves the right to reject papers that, in the view of the editorial board, are either of insufficient quality, or are not relevant to the subject area. The editor is prepared to discuss contributions before submission. The journal publishes work in the categories described below.

Research Papers

These may be qualitative or quantitative, empirical or theoretical in nature and can discuss completed research findings or work in progress.

Case Studies

Case studies are welcomed illustrating practise in the field of information systems evaluation.

View Points

View points are less academically rigorous articles usually in areas of controversy which will fuel some interesting debate.
