Conference Call for Papers

As the European Parliament and Council adopted the regulation establishing a single digital gateway on 11 December 2018, it set Europe on a very clear path of digital transformation, planned to be fully implemented by the end of 2023. This transformative change will greatly enhance the development of cross-border services as by then all national online procedures will have to be made fully accessible to cross-border users. In addition, the ‘once-only principle’ will be applied to cross-border exchanges of evidence for a range of procedures. All of this cannot be achieved and developed further without extensive collaboration between private and public sectors. Specifically, the conference aims to advance research and practice on cross-border services in democratic digital government.

The dg.o conference series is an established forum for presentation, discussion, and demonstration of interdisciplinary research on digital government, ICT and public administration, political participation, civic engagement, technology innovation, applications, and practice. Each year the conference brings together scholars recognized for the interdisciplinary and innovative nature of their work, their contributions to rigor of theory and relevance of practice, their focus on important and timely topics and the quality of their writing.

The conference proceedings are to be published by ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (3.1 according to ETIS), and indexed in DBLP and Google Scholar.

Overview

Top Research Topics at Digital Government Research?

  • Public relations (35.50%)
  • Government (28.32%)
  • Knowledge management (17.48%)

The objective of Digital Government Research is to combine knowledge in the areas of Public relations, Government, Knowledge management, Social media and Session (computer science). It facilitates discussions on Public relations that incorporate concepts from other fields like E-Government, Transparency (behavior), Open government, Public administration and Public sector. Issues in Government were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Context (language use), Information technology, Corporate governance, Information and Communications Technology and Open data.

The work on Open data addressed in the event expands to the thematically related Data science. The Knowledge management study tackled is a key component of adjacent topics in the area of Information sharing.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2014 edition, 10.53% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 50.98% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 21.57% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 27.45% of all publications and 0.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
