The Digital Government Reference Library


Version 14.0 of the Digital Government Reference Library (DGRL), which was previously named Electronic Government Reference Library (EGRL), has been published as of June 15, 2018. The library now contains 10,299 references of predominantly English-language, peer-reviewed work in the study domains of digital government, digital governance, and digital democracy.

This marks a 4.0% increase in references from version 13.5 (December of 2017) and a 10.9% increase from version 13.0 (June of 2017). This past publication period has yet been another good one for e-Government-related publishing adding another 4-digit number (1,012) of new peer-reviewed academic references within the past 12 months.

The DGRL has become an indispensable tool for e-Gov scholars. In particular, reviewers of paper submissions are reported to rely heavily on this reference library. Packaged in a 20.6 MB zip file, bibTeX, RIS, and an enlp (packaged) full Endnote versions are available. Mendeley or Zotero versions can easily be created by importing from RIS or bibTeX files.
