International Journal of Electronic Governance. 2016. Vol. 8. No. 3. P. 229-243.

In the paper, the authors present open government expert monitoring and evaluation methodology designed according to the international experience in open government adoption. The methodology comprises and logically explains the relationship among open government principles, mechanisms, evaluation criteria and indicators. The methodology is tested by example of Russian federal public agencies. The authors use monitoring and evaluation results to formulate universal factors impeding effective adoption of open government principles and mechanisms worldwide. Among mechanisms of open government the authors consider reference groups, open data, social networks and citizens’ requests. Finally, the authors discuss further research directions enabling effective adoption of openness by governments in future.
