Call for papers 2018
Main focus and working aims
The e-Government Working Group invites innovative papers concerning the influence of information communication technologies (ICT) on government, public administration, public policy and the public sector in general. The main focus and differentiation of NISPAcee regarding this topic is not only discovering some of the special challenges originating from the CEE region, but also contributing to the general discourses on digital transformation of citizens, institutions and governance.  

Specific goals
Invited topics for 2018:
1.    Topics related to digital service innovation: that is how various ICT and digital technologies are used in transforming processes, structures, stakeholder relations etc. in order to innovate government and public service delivery.  
2.    We would welcome receiving papers in the field of e-participation, how ICT enhances democratic processes, collaboration, co-creation and by doing so how e-solutions contribute to building better communities. Within this stream of research we are especially looking for cases, empirical findings relating to local governments and communities on how more active and effective citizens´ involvement can be achieved.
3.    Topics relating to social media use in the field of e-government and e-governance. We encourage authors to submit papers relating to the innovative use of social media in local or central government practices, communication processes, service delivery and in citizens’ engagement.
Beyond these specific topics, the Working Group is also open to presentations on other evergreen aspects of e-governance research, such as the concepts of open data, challenges of privacy and security, transparency and new dilemmas of multi-level governance. The contributed articles can take the form of a case study, a report of cross-country or cross-sectoral survey, comparative analysis of showcases or policies, and even policy proposals or policy analysis. We encourage and advise authors to bravely use the interesting new theories applied to e-governance and also the application of innovative qualitative and quantitative research methodologies.   

Guidelines for contributors
a)    Addressing a relevant and practically embedded topic of ICT application in public services or administration.
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 to NISPAcee, but also to a broader international audience.
d)     We would also encourage contributors to amend their abstracts and full papers with a short separate sub-section of practical points for practitioners. These sections should clearly highlight the practical value of the presented research and its results, listing a couple of concrete recommendations for practitioners, typically politicians, as well as public administration employees and leaders.
