Digital technologies have introduced a paradigm shift in how organisations, cultural institutions and tourist companies operate. Current technological and quantitative approaches to information technology are insufficient for a deeper understanding of the implications of this shift, which requires a deeper qualitative and social analysis of electronic technologies' impact on cultural and tourist business than currently found. IJDCET fills this gap, fostering dialogue about how culture and tourism require an integrated approach emphasising content, context and multiple, dynamic views of interactions.
