  1. Dear Jochen

    Why didn´t you reveal this great librery at the doctoral consortium at EGOV! I am currently in the phase of planning my litirature review proces regarding value from eGovernment and I am looking forward to using the 5000 papers, that you have collected, thanks very much, a great contribution.

    Have you written a paper documenting, that the library is exhaustive?

    Best regards

    By the way – the field length for registring e-mail address (30 char) was to small to meet my requirements. Maybe you will consider expanding the field…

    • Jesper, hi, thank you for your comments. We have expanded the input field length for email addresses by 50 percent hoping that this will do it.

      As indicated in my earlier email to you, I mentioned the EGRL at least twice during the colloquium, although maybe not prominently enough otherwise you would have picked it up. Also, are you subscriber to the EGOV LIST? Every half year update notices about the EGRL are sent to this listserv so that the community receives the latest link to the updated EGRL.

      Yes, I have published two manuscripts with bibliometric analyses of the EGRL (see references below). An update to these two analyses is in the making.
