<meta name="DC.contributor.referee I" content="Reports: In this article the authors explain clearly the social relevance of the study of ICT penetration for the development of the information society. The analysis focuses on the period 1996-2008 and aims to verify whether the initiatives implemented by the Valencian Government have produced a positive impact. The theoretical framework provides updated and very relevant information; the methodology section explains properly the techniques used to obtain the information; the wording is clear and allows understanding the text; the citation format is consistent and meets the criteria of the journal. The results and their discussion are clearly and extensively presented and the analysis allows the reader to get a clear view of why the authors do not consider that “the actions carried out by the Valencian Government have had a positive impact in its society, at least, with greater intensity than the actions carried out by the central Government at the national level”. I recommend its publication without modifications. - Blanca Chong-Lopez, Ph.D. – Autonomous University of Coahuila, Mexico."/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="Reports on the article: This is an interesting article that tries to reflect the ICT penetration in the Valencian Community, and to prove whether the initiatives implemented by the Valencian Government have been positive. The methodology is based on benchmarking, on the lines followed by the reports assessing the impact of the policies for the promotion of the information society in the European Union. The authors compare the data provided by the indicators (according to the joint action of several criteria that are correctly detailed) of the Valencian Community with the national data. For all this, the authors adjust the national and international proposals to the regional sphere. The sources of data are appropriate and competent, and the tests applied to verify the hypotheses are pertinent. The results are conclusive and well presented. There is no doubt that, since this material of difficult interpretation (many data, values, etc.), the authors make an effort to achieve the best possible interpretation. The conclusions are accurate and conclusive, focus on the object of study and do not get lost in useless interpretations. - Koldo Meso, Ph.D. - University of the Basque Country."/>

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="Abstrat: Valencia. The methodology employed is based on comparative assessment. The evaluating policies model proposed in ‘Avanza’ Plan was taken as a point of reference when selecting indicators. Data was collected from official statistical sources (NSI). Three statistical test are applied to test the hypotheses (r2 Pearson, chi-square and t-student). The results indicate that it is not possible to assert that the actions implemented by the Valencian Regional Government have had a more positive effect on society in Valencia than those implemented by the Spanish Central Government. One reason may lie in the specific objectives of the policy strategy conducted by the Valencian Government. It has focused primarily on e-Goverment. There are less projects about new technologies in the private sector. Similarly, the integration of new technologies in everyday life is in a second place despite that the citizen is a central actor on the international agenda."/>
