January 1, 2009
This white paper examines the state of the field of e-government research to assess strategically how the Bedrosian Center may best target future research initiatives. E-government research is characterized by a great deal of interaction between practitioners and academic researchers, but most research continues to either lack sufficient rigor to produce generalizable results or in search of rigor becomes too abstract to be directly useful to guide practice. Thus, despite the explosive growth in the field there remain numerous opportunities to develop research projects that can both interest and aid practitioners and be publishable in top academic journals. Through two reviews - one of the specialized e-government literature and the other of general public administration and political science journals - this paper identifies a number of research areas in which the Bedrosian Center could target its efforts.
