Special Issue on: "One-Stop Government"
Guest Editors: Dr. Efthimios Tambouris, Centre of Research and Technology Hellas (ITI-CERTH), Greece and Prof. Konstantinos Tarabanis, University of Macedonia, Greece.
In the context of public administration reforms that are taking place in many countries, the notion of one-stop government is becoming increasingly important. One-stop government suggests that citizens and businesses can access integrated public services that match their exact needs and circumstances with minimum interaction through their preferred channels. One-stop government also suggests that the customer is able to access atomic or integrated public services through a single point even if these services are actually provided by different departments or authorities. In practice however, this integration of public services faces a number of challenges, including political, legal, cultural, organisational, semantic and technical ones.
This special issue aims to focus on the wider interdisciplinary character of e-government and especially one-stop government and to report relevant research and experiences from operational case studies.
More specifically, original unpublished research articles and case studies are sought covering various disciplines pertinent to one-stop government and relevant cross-domain research. The focus of the special issue will be on research papers, case studies, experience reports and impact/efficiency assessments based on operational findings from one-stop government implementations with considerable impact and learning potential.Subject Coverage
