Editorial JeDEM 7(2) 2015: CeDEM 15
Keywords:Open Government, Open Data, e-democracy, transparency, openness
This issue comprises the best papers of the CeDEM 15 conference in May 2015 in Krems, Austria.
In this issue of JeDEM, we are pleased to include the keynotes by Shauneen Furlong and Alon Peled held at the CeDEM15 Conference at Danube University Krems, research papers from CeDEM and a paper submitted to the JeDEM open submission system. Whilst the keynotes’ articles describe the challenges to transformational government and the linking (or “wazing”) of the world’s government data resources, the authors investigate transparency in open governments, the critical factors in the use and publication of open data, the motivation to share knowledge in public administrations using new media technologies, as well as cities’ commitment to Open Data. The selection of research papers show that whilst “openness” and “transparency” are key issues in e-democracy and Open Government, they clearly contain a variety of dimensions that need to be analysed in different contexts and using different examples and perspectives .
