Malliaris stated, "On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Fellows of the Athenian Policy Forum, I am delighted to see the Journal of Economic Asymmetries join Elsevier. We expect the wider visibility of the journal, now that it is part of the Elsevier family, will offer a much greater incentive to scholars and policy makers to submit their research papers to the journal. We wish to emphasize that the journal has three globally known co-editors who specialize in economic problems and associated policies across three geographical regions: the Americas, Europe and Asia."

Jenny Henzen, Economics Publisher at Elsevier said, "We are pleased to be announcing this new publishing agreement with APF and look forward to working with the Editor Professor Anastasios G. Malliaris.”
