The purpose of this research is to analyze research trend of e-participation in Korea which is highly recognized today. Sixty research papers on e-participation published from 2001 to 2013 are analyzed for this research. Main ideas and contents of each paper are reviewed and research subjects and methods of overall papers are analyzed. Mostly, actual state and promotion of e-participation is studied through the analysis of local government web sites, and other specific subjects on e-participation are also studied. Currently, research on e-participation is rather shrinking, and therefore, it is necessary to suggest valid ways to promote e-participation through research on influencing factors to e-participation and e-participation in central government.
