Special issue call for papers from Journal of Property Investment & Finance

Journal of Property Investment & Finance is pleased to announce  a call for papers for the upcoming special issue: PropTech and Entrepreneurship: Innovation in Real Estate.

Real Estate is a factor of production, and the interplay of real estate with capital, human resource, IT and entrepreneurship is the cornerstone of most businesses. In recent years, there has been a seismic shift in the link between property and technology; the former being redesigned and engineered to accommodate the latter.

  • Property within the business
  • Future innovations and trends in Real Estate Development
  • Artificial Intelligence and its impact on commercial property investment
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Business analytics and Business intelligence
