Abstract: Research on m-government has started in the last decade. The use of m-government has been rapidly increasing due to the high penetration of mobile devices in the general population. This research will first compare m-government to e-government which will help in understanding the similarities and the differences between the two types of government. Then this research will examine the current state of research in the area of m-government. In this research, we collected 79 papers specifically related to m-government, dividing them into themes based on the research premise. The results showed that there is a gap in understanding the relationship between the use of m-government and civic engagement. A future study is highly recommended to determine whether the use of m-government positively affects civic engagement.
