MAPPING COLLABORATION NETWORK ON ELECTRONIC GOVERNMENT RESEARCH IN THE LAST TWO DECADE: A BIBLIOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF CO-AUTHORSHIP AND CITATION
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to look at the bibliographic characteristics and contents of electronic government publications published in Scopus-indexed journals in 2000-2021. Method: We gathered data from Scopus database on August 9, 2021. The keyword is “Electronic Government" which is limited to the article titles, abstracts, and keywords. We got 21.447 articles. Then we filtered the data based on numerous criteria. To perform further analysis, the data were exported into Comma Separated Values (CSV) file format and then analyzed using the VOS viewer application program with co-authorship and citation analysis types. Result: Following the protocol for bibliometric research, we found 1.153 articles with 2.433 authors. As a result of the analysis, we found 22 authors who met the threshold. Based on the co-authorship analysis, 14 authors collaborated, while 8 authors did not collaborate. Meanwhile, based on the results of citation analysis, we found the 9 most active authors cite each other. Conclusion: Based on the results of our analysis, there are 3 authors who are most actively collaborating and cite other authors. Meanwhile, there are 2 countries that collaborate the most so that the authors are often referred to by other authors.
