International Journal of Electronic Governance (IJEG), Vol. 6, No. 1, 2013

Abstract: This study contributes to the current literature of eGovernment adoption, by proposing a parsimonious, yet comprehensive model, based on three socio-economic theories namely, institutionalism, endogenous and exogenous growth. Using this framework as the guiding theoretical lens, critical factors are identified, while their impact is evaluated with an econometric analysis on secondary, country level data. The study especially highlights on the use of OSS technology and its implications into the eGov context. Findings suggest that countries with advanced technologies, education, technological openness and effective governance and regulation lead eGovernment adoption.
