Abstract

The transformative effects of digital technologies require researchers to understand the long-term
consequences of the digital transformation process and to contribute to its design in a responsible way. This important challenge is addressed by the emerging concept of Digital Responsibility (DR). While the concept is increasingly recognized by political and organizational groups, the academic discussion is still not systematically evolving and the core elements of DR are not yet integrated into a coherent structured framework. This article presents a first systematic overview about the relevant levels of DR (personal, corporate and societal), its core principles and the key research themes for business & information systems researchers that relate to important questions of digital responsibility.

Keywords: Digital Responsibility, Digitalization, Digital Transformation, Corporate Digital Responsibility, CDR, DR
