Reviews and Testimonials

Governments from all over the world are looking to benefit from new technology, but often fail in doing so. IJEGR keeps you up-to-date with the ever-changing concepts in the field of e-government, and many of the papers combine technology, systems, organizational, and strategic aspects.

– Marijn Janssen, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands

Since the beginning of the 21st century, e-government has become a much talked about topic in academic and practitioner circles. Being a relatively new concept, through, means that there is a lot to learn about the socio-cultural, organizational, and technological impact of e-government. In this context, IJEGR is one of few high-quality journals that provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to share their experiences and ideas on the topic of e-government.

– Vishanth Weerakkody, Brunel University, UK

Literature and practice show that the adoption of new technologies is conditioned by organizational characteristics and, the other way around, that information technologies have the potential to transform government processses, organizational structure, and human resources. The International Journal of Electronic Government Research offers a timely and critical platform to foster further understanding about these topics. The collection of real cases and conceptual articles contribute, without a doubt, to the theory and practice of the e-government field.
