A special issue of Societies

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, we have witnessed major transformations in the ways that individuals and organizations interact with one another, whether in personal, professional, or societal contexts. The adoption of new technologies, mobile services, the widespread use of the Internet, social media, artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, and the Internet of Things, among many other technologies, have led to diverse and transversal changes in many processes in our organizations and society.

Because of this digital transformation, today’s society has become an E-society, a community noticeably characterized by E-government, E-democracy, E-business, E-learning, E-health, and many other digital services.

However, how is this new form of interaction impacting society, organizations, and individuals? What are the technical and non-technical aspects to consider in an E-society? These are questions that must constantly be answered, as the level of digitization and transformation evolves into new processes or into new domains of society.

Thus, this Special Issue intends, in a transversal way, to publish a collection of scientific contributions that address these aspects in the various domains of an E-society. Contributions must fall into one of the three categories of papers for the journal (article, conceptual papers or reviews) and address the topic of this Special Issue.
