Value Creation in Digital Platforms and Business Ecosystems:
Networks, Relationships and the Platform Markets

to be published by Routledge

Victoria Slettli, (Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences)
Sabine Baumann (Berlin School of Economics and Law)

Background and objective
Opportunities brought by digital technologies have dramatically transformed business
contexts and the structure of business interactions. Digital relationships with partners and
customers taking place on the online platforms and organized as digital businesses
ecosystems and digital service platforms influence the modes and mechanisms of value
creation in such contexts. Meanwhile, in the physical product market, value creation is mostly
an internal process within the so-called pipeline business model, the value creation in the
platform markets is somewhat different with the absence of explicit value stream directions.
Platform actors are in a complex relationship with each other, exchanging resources on a
permanent basis and without a predefined order, creating innovations and hence, value. The
preconditions for value creation in the digital markets are related to the so-called network
effects. Actors within digital markets may benefit from the supply-side network effects or
economies of scale, as well as demand-side network effects. On the other side, the network
effects may turn negative if the platform loses its attractiveness. Hence, the matter of digital
community curation and governance to ensure innovation is of high urgency. Further, in such
digital spaces, the issue of value co-creation with customers and partners becomes of pivotal
This edited volume seeks to provide a comprehensive and detailed exploration of the
evolution and current state of research on all aspects of value creation in the context of
platform markets, digital ecosystems and platforms. It brings together established scholars
deepening knowledge and emerging scholars forging new ground to expand knowledge and
investigates different perspectives on the subject matter. All types of scholarly papers are
invited for submission (theoretical, review, cases, descriptive empirical studies, etc.)
employing a variety of research methods. The aim is to produce a reference book that can be
used both by academics aiming to familiarize themselves with the state of research and theory
concerning value creation in the platform markets, as well as practitioners interested in the
practices and insights in the subject matter.
Recommended topics
The book is open to conceptual and empirical contributions and case studies from all areas of
business administration and management, marketing, entrepreneurship, innovation,
economics and humanities. Chapters related to all dimensions of context relevant for Value
creation in Digital Platforms and Markets are welcome. They include, but are not limited to,
