Since 2017 we have been preparing for publishing an SSCI level international journal based on the accumulation of AECF activities. This year the forumAECF2020 is celebrating the launching of the new journal, Asia and the Global Economy(AGE) published by the major publisher, Elsevier. AGE will be the official journal of Asia Economic Community Foundation and Incheon National University..


AGE publishes rigorous economic, political science and international relations research with clear policy implications for the Asian region and Asia’s role in the global economy. Articles must have a firm analytical basis, but and their findings must have significant policy relevance for questions facing the Asian countries. Consequently, AGE will publish innovative and timely studies of economic, political and social aspects of relations among Asian countries and their relations with the rest of the world. Analytical or policy-oriented contributions will be welcome from diverse perspectives.
