Reviews

“Digital Business Discourse edited by Erika Darics makes a strong case for discourse-focused research in the digitalized business environment. It creates a kaleidoscopic view of the phenomenon of practitioners working – and communicating – in today’s digitalized workplace. And most importantly: it offers inspiring new research directions for scholars as well as insights and ideas for teachers in business, professional, corporate and organizational communication. … it would be best enjoyed in peace and quiet with your mobile turned off. Enjoy!” (Anne Kankaanranta, Iberica, Vol. 33, 2017)

“Taking into account both its content and format, the volume would appeal to researchers interested in communication in organisational and professional settings as well as in digital communication more broadly. It would also be a valuable read to students wishing to explore the subject and explore ways of conducting research in digital and social media. The range of theoretical approaches employed in individual chapters offers readers potentially new ways of approaching analysis.” (Dr. Agnieszka Lyons, The Linguist List, linguistlist.org, June, 2016)

“This book contains the most comprehensive collection of research about digital business discourse. It is an essential resource for all communication scholars interested in this area of study. With its easily readable and engaging content and style, it can also serve as an appropriate text for many communication courses with a focus on digital communication. … All serious scholars of digital business discourse should find valuable material in this book to guide and position their research.” (Peter W. Cardon, International Journal of Business Communication, Vol. 53 (2), 2016)

“This volume provides very insightful information on various new modes of communication in our digital age. It is both reassuring and inspiring. … this volume has played a significant role in taking us into the world of digital business discourse.” (Zuocheng Zhang, ESP Today, Vol. 3 (2), December, 2015)



'From email to consumer reviews and instant messaging the book is a comprehensive collection of business practices in the digital medium. An accessible and diverse selection of research, the book should become an invaluable guide to both seasoned researchers and advanced students of communication. A significant, and original, aspect of the book is its international scope: with studies from different countries, including Slovenia, Hong Kong and India, as well as the global world of the Internet, the book provides important insights into the opportunities and constraints brought by the electronic media to the international workplace.' Dr Sky Marsen, Center for Management Communication, University of Southern California, USA

'This book makes a valuable contribution to our rapidly expanding knowledge of how digital mediation is impacting on business communication. Virtually every chapter provides new insights or new findings that add to our growing understanding that mediated communication is not only a new communication activity, as Williams (1998) called it, but also a force driving profound change in the way the world of business works. The book is divided into three parts, dealing respectively with the language- and discourse-related issues arising with the new technologies, the development of new conventions by users of the new media and different approaches to researching the field. This categorization provides a useful way of analysing developments in the field, while within each section the chapters expand our grasp of the effects and significance of the communication revolution.' - Maureen Guirdham, Former Director, MBA Programme, City University and author of Communicating Across Cultures at Work
