I would like to invite you to propose a paper for a Special Issue on “E-administration—Its Use and Spread”.
In today’s world, e-administration, also called electronic administration, is starting to become widespread. E-administration refers to any number of mechanisms which transform organizations from paper processing to electronic processing. The success of e-administration depends on the extent to which citizens are able and wish to take advantage of the opportunities allowed by it. It could be especially beneficial for any type of excluded and discriminated people, for example, persons with disabilities.
The main reason for using e-administration was to increase the efficiency of institutional operations by private and public organizations. Thanks to the digital signature, any citizen can carry out any procedure without leaving their home or needing to go to the nearest office. E-administration has increased the availability of services up to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the year. Further, a very important advantage is the availability of public services—for example, we can have online information about procedures, about the accessibility of particular public services, and so on.
To achieve the best efficiency of e-administration, we should take into account many technical aspects—for example, cloud computing, electronic signature, big data management, Internet of Things, blockchain.
The use of e-administration can be also very important from a Smart City concept point of view. The implementation of a Smart City needs digitalization of the largest possible amount of processes in the city. In this approach, cities should integrate problems like urban development, urban planning, climate change, water governance, energy governance, and so on into one conscious system. The e-administration system is needed to achieve it.
Qualitative and quantitative empirical research studies are desired in this Special Issue. We would like to welcome papers that will show the impact of various factors (social, economic, managerial, technical) on e-administration use and spread.
