E‐Government projects are huge undertakings and require serious political commitment, clear vision and robust long term strategy. Human factors is an important aspect when designing and implementing e‐government projects, however, the technology that underpin and enable such implementation is equally important. The focus of the proposed special issue is on the later of the aforementioned two aspects. The aim is to consider all relevant aspects of technology design and its implications for e‐government implementation, with a particular focus on e‐government and ebusiness portals and websites. The objective is to discuss mechanisms for better design to meet the citizens’ expectations and satisfaction. A second aim of the proposed special issues is to explore such implications and issues with a view to suggesting appropriate strategies to resolve the issues and remove restricting barriers. The special issue also aims to bring the best practices and guidelines for technology design in this specialized area of e‐government project implementation.


The objectives of the proposed Special Issue are twofold: (i) to invite ideas, suggestions and recommendations and publish high quality contributions examining the inherent issues, technology design implications, user experiences and guidelines for technology appropriation and (ii) to invite case studies to publish and disseminate best practices employed by organizations, project managers and practitioners in the field of e‐government. The aim is to provide opportunities for discussion of implications and dissemination of good practices that will be useful or of interest to academics from a
range of fields including information systems, human computer interaction, computer supported cooperative work and organizational science as well as for government officials and governmental organizations.


Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
• User experiences with e‐government infrastructures
• Technology infrastructure and citizens engagement
• ICTs and Community empowerment
• Digital divide and E‐government adoption
• ICTs and e‐democracy
• Impact of ICT in governmental, nongovernmental and public communication
• Technology management practices in government and non governmental settings
• Limitations, challenges and barriers to ICT adoption for Government and public
• Web 2.0 (Blogs, wikis, social networking websites) and E‐government
• Mobile technology and E‐government
• Economic, ethical, security, privacy and legal issues


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers for this special theme issue on Technology Design for E‐Government: Issues and Implications on or before August 31, 2011. All submissions must be original and may not be under review by another publication.

INTERESTED AUTHORS SHOULD CONSULT THE JOURNAL’S GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSIONS at All submitted papers will be reviewed on a double‐blind, peer review basis. Papers must follow APA style for reference citations.

The mission of the International Journal of Information Communication Technologies and Human Development (IJICTHD) is to create awareness on how ICTs contribute to human development in multiple areas. This journal describes the link between ICTs and human development, which includes economic, social, and political development. IJICTHD identifies potential applications for the development of human beings and provides insightful analysis about those factors (also contextual and institutional ones) that affect ICTs for human development initiatives. Proposing strategies to both governments and international cooperation organizations for moving forward, this journal also addresses future challenges.

This journal is an official publication of the Information Resources Management Association www.igi‐
