JeDEM - eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government

The eJournal of eDemocracy and Open Government (JeDEM) provides researchers and practitioners the opportunity to advance the practice and understanding of eDemocracy, eGovernment, eParticipation. The journal aims to bridge innovative, insightful and stimulating research, testing and findings with practice and the work conducted by governments, NPOs, NGOs and professionals. Given the different backgrounds of the editors, JeDEM encourages articles which come from different disciplines or adopt an interdisciplinary approach, including eVoting, ePolitics, eSociety, business IT, applied computer gaming and simulation, cyberpsychology, usability, decision sciences, marketing, economics, psychology, sociology, media studies, communication studies, political science, philosophy, law, policy, legislation, and ethics. JeDEM provides up-to-date articles with ideas to be discussed, used and implemented, whilst at the same time also being a repository of knowledge.

JeDEM publishes ongoing and completed research, case studies and project descriptions  that are selected after a rigorous blind review by experts in the field.

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

In our current era, data-driven approaches influence all aspects of daily life. The fast and effective handling of these data is a crucial point of keeping our society working. Yet, the sheer amount of data being produced even at this very moment is often to big to be interpreted and understood in a correct and timely fashion. It is this complexity and criticality that renders the usability and accessibility of data and the inherent information even more important. This becomes even more obvious, when taking into account that most of today’s approaches to data analytics and interpretation focus on experts and their requirements rather than on non-experts. This does not only lead to a limitation regarding the usefulness of data but also critically impacts the foundations of our society regarding open access to data and information - data democracy so to say.

This special issue of JeDEM invites contributions in the following areas:

  • Open Data Analytics
  • Open Data Visualization
  • Open Access to Legal Information
