This study analyses the relationship between the e-government transformation success in Turkey and the eighteen success factors commonly assumed to be the causes of the success in the literature by using the data collected from four central and four local Turkish public institutions. It uses a quantitative methodology, which considers the e-government transformation success as the dependent variable and the eighteen success factors as the independent variables in a relational model. Apart from the similar studies in the literature, this study is a multidimensional quantitative one considering technical, social, organizational, economic, political and legal dimensions of the subject concurrently and it uses the data of not only external stakeholders (people using the e-government services) but also internal stakeholders (people working in the public institutions to provide the e-government services) while doing its analyses. The study collects more than 400 responses with a common survey from each stakeholder group and evaluates the possible relationships between the dependent variable and the independent variables by using the correlation, the regression and the factor analyses. The main results of these analyses show that even though there are significant and positive relationships between the probable success factors and the transformation success, these relationships are not cause and effect relationships as assumed in the other qualitative studies in the literature.

Building a methodology to assess the e-government transformation success
Iskender, Gokhan; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (null; 2012-12-01)
This study develops a methodology to evaluate the weights of probable factors which might be effective in the success of egovernment transformation by using a sample obtained from two different stakeholder groups in four central and four local Turkish public institutions. One stakeholder group contains the citizens using the services provided by e-government (external stakeholders) while the other contains the workers of public institutions providing these services (internal stakeholders).

This study aims to present a synthesis of empirical studies conducted in Turkey on pre- and in-service math teachers' knowledge and to recapitulate the existing conceptualization in this particular line of research in the local context. Considering the interwoven and sophisticated nature of teachers' knowledge (Seidel & Shavelson, 2007), it sets out to enhance the understanding on what constitutes and should constitute these math teachers' knowledge by discovering the frequently studied research strands in ...
