Sports and other entertainment-sector firms play important roles in the digitalisation challenge created by the knowledge economy. This challenge requires paradigm shifts in ways companies operate. Current technological/quantitative approaches to information technology are insufficient for a deeper understanding of its implications, which requires a more profound qualitative/social analysis of electronic technologies' impact on the entertainment business. 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, governance (digital companies, sport and entertainment industries, etc.)
  • Corporate disclosure and digital culture
  • Intangible assets in digital companies
  • Digital society and cultural heritage
  • Corporate strategy, digital business models and decision making processes
  • Sport, entertainment and cultural industries, sport law
  • Intellectual property rights and e-branding
  • Measurement performance systems (digital companies, traditional companies, etc.)
  • Business evaluation
  • Business networks in web companies and among web and traditional companies
  • ICTs in cultural institutions and tourism companies
