The Asian Research Consortium is an open-access publisher that is probably based in Chandigarh, India, but this is only a guess as the publisher does not reveal its location on its website.
The publisher’s current scholarly journal portfolio currently includes five titles:
- Asian Journal of Research in Social Sciences and Humanities
- Asian Journal of Research in Business Economics and Management
- Asian Journal of Research in Banking and Finance
- Asian Journal of Research in Marketing
The website is confusing because it refers to a single journal (“About the journal”) when in fact there are five. Also, the website uses the color red a lot, including red text, which is annoying to some.
I cannot find any reference to author fees on the site, so it is unclear how the publisher finances its journal operations. The content is open access.
The publisher demonstrates its commitment to interdisciplinary studies by publishing the journal Asian Journal of Research in Social Sciences and Humanities.
The journals’ cover images appear to be pirated and seem unfitting for most of the journals’ content.
