We explore economic, social, psychological, ethical, and regulatory aspects of digitalization and digital transformation from the vantage points of individuals, organizations, and societies. We value methodological pluralism and employ both qualitative and quantitative approaches in our research. We aim to solve relevant practical problems and create new scientific knowledge by maintaining research rigor.
