The European Journal of ePractice is a peer-reviewed online publication on eTransformation, launched in November 2007. The Journal belongs to the ePractice.eu community, is sponsored by the European Commission as part of its good practice exchange activity and is run by an independent Editorial Board.

The aim of European Journal of ePractice (EJeP) is to reinforce the visibility of papers as well as that of professionals in eTransformation building an author's community which will strengthen the overall ePractice.eu activity. The publication promotes the diffusion and exchange of good practice in eGovernment, eHealth and eInclusion and is open access, free of any charge to all readers.

The current issue with title 'Surviving in the Digital eID' discusses that while identity information is definitely the property of the individual, the information is increasingly shared across social networks, commercial services and Government, with or without the individual’s consent. As a result, this issue further elaborates on the question on how can we, as individuals, survive in the digital identity world while still being able to utilise our identity information as an asset to our own advantage in a controlled way. Coupled with that, it accesses the legal, cultural and technological measures that can contribute to an environment where privacy and ownership to personal information are respected.
