Existing research on electronic information sharing (EIS) in government faces the challenge of identifying a suitable collaborative approach, and features the lack of a holistic framework to categorize research results and to provide future research suggestions. This paper systematically analyzes and traces the literature on EIS in government by using the framework by Emerson et al. (2012)’s as a lens to assess the core elements of collaborative dynamics. Findings show that existing research on EIS in government focuses on the topics of finding a suitable communication approach, consolidating long-term relationships, and on rational resource allocation arrangements among stakeholders. However, there is still a lack of governance framework to investigate processes of long-term relationship formation and their impacts on collective actions.
