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."
