Government Information Quarterly is an international journal that examines the intersection of policy, information technology, government, and the public. In particular, GIQ focuses on how policies affect government information flows and the availability of government information; the use of technology to create and provide innovative government services; the impact of information technology on the relationship between the governed and those governing; and the increasing significance of information policies and information technology in relation to democratic practices.

As the leading journal in the field, Government Information Quarterly seeks to publish high quality scholarly research, viewpoint articles and editorials that inform both researchers and practitioners regarding the relationship between policy, information technology, government, and the public. The journal seeks submissions drawn from a variety of disciplines, including but not limited to information science, public policy, public administration, political science, business, law, geography, information systems, communications, economics, sociology, computer science, and public health.

Government Information Quarterly encourages submissions that focus on:

• Information policies and their impact on government information flows, availability, and access
• The impact of information technology on government innovation, transformation, and practice
• An open, transparent, and accountable government
• Data privacy, protection and security
• Participatory decision-making and civic engagement and the role of information technology in promoting and/or limiting civil discourse, participation, and practice
• Information flows in public spheres
• Co-participation and co-production between the governed and the governing and the influence of technology and policy on the relationship between the public and government
• The citizen, the state, information policy, and information technology
• The development, implementation, and use of information systems and emerging technologies as platforms and delivery tools for government services and resources, as well as tools for decision and policy making

Within this scope, Government Information Quarterly welcomes three types of submissions:

1. Original research papers that combine rigour and relevance to advance the state-of-the-art and state-of-practice in the field

2. Significant theoretical contributions that consolidate or advance the state-of-the-art in the field

3. Significant practical contributions that convey novel and breakthrough ideas to advance the state-of-practice in the field
