Electronic culture embraces both cultural heritage and present-day culture. Firms involved in the cultural, sports and entertainment sectors play a key role. The knowledge economy has generated a wide spectrum of enterprises involved in the digitalisation challenge. Current approaches to information technology are insufficient to meet this challenge, which requires a deeper qualitative and social analysis. IJDCET fills this gap, fostering dialogue about how culture and tourism require an integrated approach emphasising content, context and multiple, dynamic views of interactions.


 Topics covered include

  • Cultural heritage
  • Digital culture and e-tourism
  • Sport, entertainment and cultural industries, sport law
  • ICTs in cultural institutions and tourism companies
  • Accounting, finance, organisation, management and corporate governance
  • Intellectual capital, intangible assets in cultural, sport and entertainment sectors
  • Corporate strategy, digital business models and decision making processes
  • Corporate disclosure, CSR, business ethics and digital society
  • Management control system in cultural, sport and entertainment industries
  • Measurement performance systems (digital and traditional companies)
  • Business (e)valuation
  • Business networks in web companies, comparing web vs traditional companies
  • Intellectual property rights, e-branding, innovations
  • E-books and digital libraries, e-entertainment and info-cultural-tainment
  • Networks, social network analysis and social media
