Aims and Scope 
Information Polity is dedicated to publishing work from two main sources: academic and practitioner. The journal publishes work from academics that is both of top quality and, equally, of high strategic relevance to practitioners. Secondly, the journal is intent on publishing work undertaken by practitioners professional, administrative and political who are actively engaged in the broad arenas of government and democracy, whether at local, regional, national or supra-national levels.

The journal is both international and comparative in its perspectives and welcomes articles from scholars and practitioners throughout the world. The journal is a tangible expression of the awareness that ICT, including the Internet, is of deepening significance for all polities as new forms of government and democratic practice are sought throughout the world. This journal establishes a role for itself in these contexts, seeking both to capture and stimulate debate.

The journal publishes articles on political, economic, legal, managerial, organizational and wider social themes and issues as they relate to policy developments surrounding information & communications technologies (ICT) in government and democracy. Examples of such themes and issues are:

The modernization of government and ICT Consumer responsive government Joined up government and ICT The globalisation of government and ICT Virtual government Data privacy, protection and security Democratic innovation and ICT The citizen, the state and ICT Changing ICT-supported democratic practices in the contemporary polity Public policies for ICT development and adoption

Publishing in Information Polity
