More on this journal...

In a world that becomes more digitally interconnected every day, governance functions at all levels are increasingly enacted through networked electronic media that in turn create new capabilities for opening up and innovating the governance process. The IJEG is a fully refereed inter-disciplinary research journal covering the theory, applications and impact of using the internet, the world-wide web and digital communication media as governance channels. The journal focuses on the use of electronic and information technologies in deliberation over democratic policy and decision making processes, community governance as well as governance in non-political domains such as corporate, open project, online community and social network contexts. IJEG also explores the relations between electronic governance, digital communication and digital inclusion, novel technologies for electronic governance such as governance games and simulations, and the political, organisational, social, psychological and cognitive aspects of electronic governance.

IJEG aims to help researchers and practitioners, academic educators and policy makers to contribute, disseminate knowledge and learn from each others’ work through cutting-edge thinking in electronic governance, and emphasises the international dimension in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and respond to accelerating technological and global change. With the objective of becoming an outstanding forum where electronic governance research and practice can take a shape of its own and results can be shared across institutions, governments, academia, research and the practitioner community, IJEG seeks

  • up-to-date, leading research reports to help readers stay ahead and maintain a competitive edge best practice in electronic governance
  • practical guidance reports on ways to achieve greater openness and innovation in the development and implementation of electronic governance
  • in-depth analysis and interpretation that advances understanding and provides a framework for further study of electronic governance
  • international coverage that allows the sharing of information, knowledge and insight on a worldwide scale.


The target audience of IJEG includes researchers, academics, professionals, managers, policy makers and non-profit organisations with an interest in the design and development of electronic governance.


IJEG publishes high quality original and review research papers, technical reports, conference reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries and news to keep readers at the forefront of the latest thinking and research in electronic governance, as well as case studies, management reports, practical applications, best practice reports and success stories to illustrate the design, implementation, development and management of electronic governance projects. IJEG publishes regular and special issues with themes that can alternate between different domains of electronic governance practice.
