This past year of 2015 has been another good year for e-Government-related publishing adding a 3-digit number (662) of new peer-reviewed academic references in one year to the EGRL.

The EGRL has developed into an indispensable tool for e-Gov scholars. In particular, preparing and reviewing paper submissions was reported to heavily rely on this reference library.

As stated above we provide the references in various editions (BibTeX, RIS, EndNote XML, and packaged EndNote). Mendeley and Zotero versions can be created based on the files we provide.
