Seattle, WA. Academic publishing on electronic government has reached an all-time high this year with 850 new peer-reviewed publications in the English language, which have been logged for the period of 12/15/2011 through 12/14/2012. Academic interest in this study domain has never been stronger before. References to the most recent publications can be found in the E-Government Reference Library (EGRL). This reference library is updated semi-annually on June 15 and December 15 of each year.
