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.

  • Accounting, finance, organisation, management and corporate governance (cultural, entertainment and sport industries, digital companies, etc.)
  • Intellectual capital, intangible assets in sport, cultural and entertainment sectors
  • Corporate strategy, digital business models and decision making processes
  • Corporate disclosure and digital culture
  • CSR, business ethics and digital society

  • Business (e)valuation, business evaluation (digital companies, traditional companies, comparisons, etc.)
