There is a growing body of research on e-government because of its potential to transform organizational governance. Most of e-government research has examined the adoption of e-government at the local level with respect to the stages of adoption, but fewer studies have examined its impact on public sector organizations.

The Handbook of Research on Strategies for Local E-Government Adoption and Implementation: Comparative Studies provides examinations of the adoption and impact of e-government in countries throughout the world at the local level by leading scholars and practitioners in the field. Through descriptions of successful cases and challenges, this important academic research collection provides an indispensable resource necessary to audiences such as academicians, researchers, and students.
