Founding objective behind our impact factor journal of finance, under the publishing title of ELK Asia Pacific Journals. 

Knowledge of financial terms and mechanisms are crucial in today’s world, not just for the professionals working in the field, but also for scholars who are preparing to be a part of the finance domain. An international journal of finance, being open access, is deemed as the best source of information for these financial terminologies and methods.
