Human-Centered System Design for Electronic Governance
A book edited by 1Saqib Saeed, 2Christopher G. Reddick
1University of Siegen, Germany, 2 University of Texas at San Antonio, USA

To be published by IGI Global:

E‐Government projects are a huge undertaking and require serious political commitment, clear vision and robust long-term strategy. The successful realization of such projects in practice requires appropriately design technology infrastructure. Higher failure rate in technology adoption has highlighted that human factors are an important aspect when designing and implementing e‐government projects. In order to foster successful usage, technologies need to be consistent with human practices. Failure to design e-government technologies properly can lead to project failure, which can represent a substantial cost for governments and loss of confidence by users in these systems.

Objective of the Book
The objectives of the proposed book 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 best 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, organizational science, public administration, and political science as well as for government officials and governmental organizations.

Target Audience
The book will be helpful for students and researchers working in the domain of Information systems. Furthermore government officials working to devise IT strategy and solutions for e- governance are also potential readers. This book will also be helpful for those that want to learn about the design of information systems in the context of e-government, from a human centric approach. University libraries will be especially interested in purchasing this textbook, since it will provide cutting edge research on the design of e-government systems for a user-centric perspective.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Case studies and user experiences with e‐government infrastructures
• Technology infrastructure and citizen engagement
• ICTs and community empowerment
• Digital divide and e‐government adoption
• E- government project management approaches
• Best practices and opportunities for technology design
• ICTs and e‐democracy
• Impact of ICT in governmental, nongovernmental and public communication
• Technology management practices in government, nongovernmental and community settings
• Limitations, challenges and barriers to ICT adoption for government
• Enabling technologies for e-government implementation
• Mobile technology and e‐government
• Web 2.0 (Blogs, wikis, social networking websites) and e‐government
• Digital divide and e- government adoption
• Metrics and Benchmarking to measure e-government success
• Economic, ethical, security, privacy and legal issues

Submission Procedure
