Topic: "Relevance, theory and rigour in e-government research”
In 2017 the E-government Working Group invites innovative papers for further enhancing the quality, visibility and impact of original research in the area of information communication technology (ICT) in the public services domain. This year we especially encourage contributions focusing on the following features:
a)Addressing a relevant and practically embedded topic of ICT application in public services or administration, especially discovering some of the special challenges of transformative government or transitional economies.
b)Elaborating and thoroughly introducing new, innovative theories which enhance our knowledge of ICT in government and public administration, and which enlighten the challenges differently, leading to a deeper understanding of their nature or of their potential creative solution.
c)Enhancing the methodological rigour of e-government research, by presenting papers with systematically and properly executed quantitative or qualitative enquires in the overlapping domain of ICT, governance, participation, communication or any other relevant topic which might be relevant, not only for NISPAcee, but also to a broader international audience.
