The mission of the International Journal of E-Politics (IJEP) is to define and expand the boundaries of e-politics as an emerging area of inter-disciplinary research and practice by assisting in the development of e-politics theories and empirical models. The journal creates a venue for empirical, theoretical, and practical scholarly work on e-politics to be published, leading to sharing of ideas between practitioners and academics in this field. IJEP contributes to the creation of a community of e-politics researchers by serving as a “hub” for related activities, such as organizing seminars and conferences on e-politics and publication of books on e-politics.

Reviews and Testimonials

The design, implementation, and use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) are not just technical issues; they are intensely social and thus political. Further, ICTs now can be used to support, challenge, fragment, and unify political discourse and speech, so the International Journal of E-Politics is both timely and essential.

– Ronald E. Rice, University of California - Santa Barbara, USA

Successfully using social media was one of the most noted aspects of President Obama's presidential campaign. Electronic media is no longer used for information and for interaction, but now is a live media that changes constantly in our lives, thoughts, and beliefs. E-politics quickly replaces the printed media and the public gathering. It changes constantly at a pace and ways unknown to researchers. The International Journal of E-Politics fills a necessary gap that will enable us to monitor, understand, and change the ways e-politics work.

– E. Isaac Mostovicz, Janus Thinking Ltd., USA

IJEP provides a critical forum for debate on politics and policy within e-based societies, particularly as information, knowledge, and technology have become tools driving through change. IJEP captures this global debate better than anyone else.

– Andrew Kakabadse, Cranfield School of Management, UK and Nada Kakabadse, Northampton Business School, UK

In the rush to understand the value of information systems and technologies and to offer council on how such value can best be achieved, academic research has naturally focused on the private sector, where money and return on investment provide relatively easy-to-obtain measures of success. But, because the collection and flow of information is critical to a productive society, information systems provide an equal or, perhaps, greater value to humanity in the public sector than in the private sector. IJEP, with its focus on government, politics, and social responsibility, brings a much needed balance to the study of information, information systems, and information technology.

– Steven R. Gordon, Babson College, USA and Editor of the Journal of Information Technology Case and Application Research

The theme of this journal meets an important need. The Internet is a rapidly expanding medium that has become the primary form of communication for many people around the world. The International Journal of E-Politics speaks to this revolutionary change and is much needed.

– Jack Quarter, University of Toronto, Canada

In the context of the information and knowledge society, in which the broadband networks are stimulating and increasing services as for the welfare state (e-health and e-learning) and the area of business (e-business), a key area of analysis is e-politics, an emerging interdisciplinary area of research and practice. In this respect, IJEP appears in the best moment to treat the sector as a contemporary form.
