Aims and Scope

Transforming Government: People, Process and Policy (TGPPP) is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality, leading scholarly and practitioner based research on the subject of transforming Government through its people, processes and policy. TGPPP aims to support early career researchers, academic leaders, practitioners and policy makers to contribute, manage and share knowledge and experience, and to learn from each other’s research through front-line thinking in e-Government.

Unique and progressive in its approach, the journal seeks to recognise both the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives of e-Government, and welcomes both pure and applied research that impacts central and local Government. International perspectives are welcome and the journal is also interested in exploring how research carried out in the private sector can be applied to the public sector as a means of improving efficiency and effectiveness. The journal is in its tenth year of publication.


The audience of TGPPP includes academics, researchers, practitioners, professionals and policy makers with an interest in the adoption, development and implementation of e-Government. 


TGPPP publishes original research papers, systematic literature reviews, conceptual/theoretical papers, case studies, research notes, and viewpoints. Contributions through viewpoint are by invitation only, and the Editors also welcome suggestions for special issues. 

Key Topics:
