Reviews & Statements

The International Journal of Innovation in the Digital Economy combines three key issues - digitality, economy and innovation - of modern society and examines their interrelationships in different context. Also, the potential problems and failures in these matters in the form of digital divide are considered. This is an important approach in the peripheral societies, such as in arctic regions.

IJIDE strives to comply with highest research standards and scientific/research/practice journals' qualities. It provides an opportunity for authors and researchers to share their knowledge on Digital Economy and some related topics with their peers.

– Azadeh Shafaei, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia

IJIDE's focus on rethinking the classical economic theory in the context of new technology, information and innovation makes it a unique journal which is the best in bringing Economics and sociology researchers, academicians, professionals and practitioners together.

– Mehran Nejati, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malyasia

The International Journal of Innovation in the Digital Economy could be used as an important vehicle for spreading new ideas and different approaches to the teaching of Economy, as the traditional teaching faces today new challenges that never appeared before. September 2008 will be remembered by the socio-economic community as one of the crucial months of the 21st Century's first decade. Although nobody knows how the world will come out of these confusing days, it is almost clear that the financial arrangements and institutions involved will have to change. It is my hope that this crisis will symbolizes the end of the rootless extreme capitalism, advocated by the heart-less Reagenism" and it will mark the beginning of a new capitalist era. That is a time for new writers to come out with their opinions and new ideas to be published. Prosperity, for men and nations, as I perceive it, depends on their ability to run and maintain an active equilibrium between society and individuals. Both parties need each other individuals are required for promoting innovation and creativity while social arrangements are needed for enabling proper and valuable life. Misery is bad for the economy as it is intolerable for civilized people. It is my hope that this journal will contribute for achieving more knowledge and prosperity."
