Over the past several years, the emergent study domain of electronic Government (e-Government, e-Gov) research (EGR), also referred to as digital government, has produced a rapidly increasing number of academic and practitioner contributions at HICSS and other leading conferences and journals around the world.

Electronic Government is distinct from “e-Business” or “e-Commerce.” Though at first glance the e-Gov initiatives as well as the underlying technologies in government practice may resemble the former, the agenda for EGR has turned out to be different and, maybe, even more complex than the former. Also, the implementation of Electronic Government appears to follow very different priorities and requirements, as do the organizational and political implications of Electronic Government, which may have even more far-reaching impacts than those of the private sector.

EGR is also distinct from traditional research agendas such as Public Management Information Systems (PMIS), Management Information Systems (MIS), or traditional Information Systems Research (ISR) in that it employs deliberately broader, pluralist, multidisciplinary, and interdisciplinary approaches drawing upon knowledge developed in various contributing fields ranging from public administration, political sciences, organization sciences, information science, sociology, computer science and engineering, psychology, communication, education, business administration, economics, and others. In EGR, we find the full spectrum of sciences from hard-pure, over hard-applied and soft-pure, to soft-applied, and also methods from purely qualitative to purely quantitative as well as novel multi-method approaches.
