One of the mechanisms that can improve the quality of the government is transparency. Accordingly, many governments hope to reduce corruption in the government and improve their financial performance by relying on transparency, while increasing citizens' confidence. Several researches have been conducted on the antecedents and consequences of transparency in the government.

Despite the positive effects of transparency, it seems to have a series of negative effects as well. In this issue, some of these negative works are reviewed and analyzed.
