Special Issue: “Co-creation and Participation Fueled by Open Data: Evidence and Impact”

Editors: Gregor Eibl, Anneke Zuiderwijk, Wei Jeng, Mila Gasco-Hernandez

Background

In many countries, President Obama’s executive order on open government data in 2009 and the PSI-directive development in Europe marked the increased attention for open government data. These policies made open and machine-readable data the new default for government information in the United States and Europe. Likewise, developments in many other countries worldwide boosted research into the benefits, barriers, and challenges of open data.

JeDEM is now using ReviewerCredits!

ReviewerCredits

Do you also think that reviewing should deserve more credit? Then we’ve got news for you!

Our OA Journal for E-Democracy and Open Government (JeDEM) started to use ReviewerCredits. This is a great tool that received worldwide attention to acknowledge reviewing efforts of researchers, and they also offer free training to reviewers.

ReviewerCredits is an independent platform supporting the peer-review process by validating and certifying activities and providing tangible rewards to reviewers.

We very much recommend to check out their video about how it all works. (more…)

OA Journal of eDemocracy and Open Government: New Chief Editor

Anneke Zuiderwijk is the new Chief Editor of JeDEM

We are pleased to welcome Anneke Zuiderwijk as the new Chief Editor of the Journal of eDemocracy and Open Government for the next four years.

Anneke is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Her research focuses on open data. More specifically, her objective is to develop theory for the development of infrastructures and institutional arrangements that incentivize open data sharing and use behavior by governments, researchers, companies and citizens. Open data has enormous potential to generate benefits and value and there is still a large gap between the current situation and the potential value generation. This motivates her to enthusiastically work on this topic throughout her entire academic career.

During her PhD, Anneke developed a theory for the development of open government data infrastructures, which she also transformed into advice for open data policy-makers. Several elements of her theory have been implemented in international projects, including FP7 ENGAGE (2014) and H2020 VRE4EIC (2018). Anneke obtained her PhD with distinction, which is only awarded to the top 5% of TU Delft PhD candidates. In 2016, she received the international Digital Governance Junior Scholar Award and was ranked as one of the most influential open data researchers worldwide.[1] She has been invited as a keynote speaker for various conferences and events (e.g. the International Conference on Future Environment and Innovation, 2014) and served as a conference programme chair (dg.o2018, dg.o2019), conference chair (I3E-2015), associate chair (OpenSym2017), associate editor (ICIS2019) and track chair (CeDEM2014; 2015, 2016, 2017, EGOV-CeDEM-ePART2018, 2019). The importance of her research has also been emphasized through best paper awards Anneke received at important conferences in her field of information science (EGOV2012, Dg.o2014). Finally, she is the co-founder of three online courses: Open Data professional education (53 experts), Open Science MOOC (1,500+ participants from 100+ countries) and Open Government MOOC (9261 participants from 150+ countries).

Anneke on her new role as Chief Editor of JeDEM:

“I am excited about my new role as editor-in-chief for JeDEM. I have experienced the process of publishing journal papers from the author perspective many times and I also have experience as guest editor of special issues for the Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research (two issues in 2014), Government Information Quarterly (2016) and Information Polity (2019). I am now ready for the next step; the full experience as editor-in-chief.

JeDEM has several very appealing characteristics, including its open access policy, being free of charge, its rapid publishing process and its comprehensive indexing within Scopus, EBSCO, DOAJ, Google scholar, and the Public Knowledge Project metadata harvester. This gives authors the opportunity to make timely research results available to a wide public, increase researcher and research visibility and have an impact in the field. I see much potential for further improving both the quality and reputation of JeDEM.

As editor-in-chief I will focus on the strategic decisions, networks and positioning and development of the journal. I am very enthusiastic about working with the highly committed and motivated JeDEM team of managing editors and editorial board members, and I very much appreciate their full support. I look forward to this new journey”.

We are looking forward to working with Anneke!

GOVCAMP VIENNA

GovCamp2019

Veränderungen, die durch Digitalisierung in der Verwaltung, in der Wirtschaft und in der Gesellschaft hervorgerufen werden, sind regelmäßig Diskussionsthemen im Rahmen des govamp vienna. Es ist das Wesen eines Barcamp, dass das Programm von den TeilnehmerInnen – beim govcamp vienna Interessierte aus Wissenschaft, Verwaltung, Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft – vor Ort das Programm gestalten. Vorschläge für Inhalte einzelner Sessions können zwar, müssen aber nicht im Vorfeld abgegeben werden. Durch die gemeinsame Festlegung des Sessionplans soll genau jenen Themen eine Plattform gegeben werden, die den TeilnehmerInnen wichtig sind. Registrierung und Teilnahme sind kostenlos.

Motto 2019: Digitaler Raum – frei & sicher?

Die TeilnehmerInnen des govcamp vienna sind eingeladen, sich am 29.11.2019 ab 9:00 Uhr im Regierungsgebäude in 1010 Wien, Stubenring 1 zu treffen. Unser gemeinsames Ziel ist, dass angeregt durch kurze Vorträge oder Präsentationen und in Workshop-Settings viele fruchtbare Diskussionen entstehen.

Das Motto “Digitaler Raum – frei & sicher?” schließt viele Themen mit ein, soll aber TeilnehmerInnen nicht daran hindern, eigene Themen einzubringen. Auch diese Offenheit kennzeichnet Barcamps. Das govcamp vienna ist offen für Diskussionen, die im weiteren Sinn mit Digitalisierung und öffentlicher Verwaltung zusammenhängen. Erfahrungsgemäß gibt es immer wieder Beiträge zu Themen wie E-Government oder Daten, deren Schutz und Sicherheit, elektronische BürgerInnenbeteiligung oder Smart City.

Wie erleben Sie Freiheit und Sicherheit im digitalen Raum?

Zum Austausch über diese und viele andere Fragen sind alle Interessierten und Aktiven aus der Zivilgesellschaft, VertreterInnen aus Verwaltung, Politik, Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft eingeladen, aktiv an den Sessions mitzuwirken und sich in den Zeiten zwischen den Sessions zu vernetzen.
