This issue comprises the best papers of the CeDEM 15 conference in May 2015 in Krems, Austria.
Included are the keynotes by Shauneen Furlong and Alon Peled held at the CeDEM15 Conference at Danube University Krems, research papers from CeDEM and a paper submitted to the JeDEM open submission system. The keynotes’ articles describe the challenges to transformational government and the linking (or “wazing”) of the world’s government data resources. The authors investigate transparency in open governments, the critical factors in the use and publication of open data, the motivation to share knowledge in public administrations using new media technologies, as well as cities’ commitment to open data.

Open Government practitioners love to speak of “the citizen”. But who are exactly those people? Too often, we asume that we know who they are and what they want. Engaging with them and exploring what they care about is a time-consuming process, thus we are builders, makers and creators with an insufficient knowledge who we are building and creating for. According to Jamie LaRue, the central irony of open government is that it’s often not open at all.
