Furthermore, the results of the ISJ Journal have the possibility to be published in a Handbook (developed jointly with the World Bank) for aspiring Smart Cities with a specific focus on policy-makers and other stakeholders wishing to improve public service delivery leveraging existing technologies and open innovation techniques.
