Information For Librarians

The eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government (JeDEM) is an international and multi-disciplinary open access which provides researchers and practitioners the opportunity to advance the practice and understanding of eDemocracy, eGovernment and  eParticipation.

JeDEM is indexed with EBSCO, DOAJ, Google scholar, and the Public Knowledge Project metadata harvester.

The journal focuses on the following subjects:

  • Policy and Legislation
  • Political Science
  • Business Information Technology
  • Business and Economy
  • Cyberpsychology
  • Usability and User Experience
  • eDemocracy
  • eSociety
  • eGovernment
  • eParticipation
  • eVoting
  • Applied Computer Gaming and Simulation
JeDEM has different sections, which underlie different reviewing criteria:
  • Part I: Scientific Research Papers (research in progress or completed) - anonymous peer review;
  • Part II: Case Studies - anonymous peer review;
  • Part III: Project Descriptions (focus on practitioners) – editorial review;
  • Part IV: Literature Reviews; Q&A; Letters to the Editors/Editorial; Expert Comments; Readers’ Page; Editorial Comment... – no review.
We encourage research librarians to list JeDEM among their libraries’ electronic journal holdings. Additionally, it may be worth noting that this journal's open source publishing system is suitable for libraries to host journals which are edited by their faculty members. (see Open Journal Systems).
