The statement above provides the key differentiation of the journal and its unique value proposition. IJEntTM aims to become the leading scholarly edition covering multiple areas and disciplines by developing and diffusing knowledge in horizontal and vertical pillars.
It investigates entertainment technology and management issues in different contexts; it promotes in horizontal lines the different views of entertainment management by structuring a scientific debate featuring the participation of new kinds of interactive media industries and researchers.
IJEntTM aims to establish value-adding knowledge transfer and personal development channels in three distinctive areas: academia, industry and society, which summarise the three pillars in which a new scientific publication can play a significant role.
IJEntTM publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics will occasionally be published.
