About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The Molung Educational Frontier focuses on contemporary study and research on the issues of governance, development, and prosperity. We have chosen these fields in realisation that in the changed context of Nepal and the whole world it is essential that we need to promote good governance in all spheres/sectors such as legislatures, executives, and judiciaries of all levels and making the governance bodies more accountable to the people and the nation with their proper functioning to achieve the goals of sustainable development whereby we can lead to prosperity. It is also equally important to strengthen all political, economic, social, and cultural/educational institutions and carefully work in all fields, but not limited to, infrastructure development, economic growth, trade and commerce, productivity increase, environment protection, and a host of other issues with the aim of achieving the goals of sustainable development.

In course of time, however, the Editorial Board of this journal can develop the theme(s) on any relevant issues in the changed context.

Sources of Support

The Molung Foundation provides the necessary expenses for publication. The Foundation raises the funds by seeking research funds from the related government/nongovernment bodies and/or agencies. It can also raise funds from endowment from individuals and/or charitable organizations/institutions if need be. Some of the amount can be earned by selling the journal copies.

MOLUNG FOUNDATION (MF), named after a river flowing in the mid-eastern hills of Nepal, is a global association engaged in various programs and activities like research and policy analysis, expert services and awareness-raising, training and capacity building in the relevant fields. It has carried out its works in different sectors since its inception, and its purposes for so doing are primarily to contribute to the development of effective methods to the formulation of public policy as well as development processes, and to assist individuals and institutions for using their abilities to the best possible effect.

Finance for the works has been provided as a grant by the individuals involved in MF and the government bodies as well as non-government agencies across the world. It also generates income from commercial projects such as the sales of its publications like journals and magazines; it raises fees from those who want to build capacities by training facilities on participation approach basis; it sells expert services in the national as well as international market. MF is a not-for-profit-sharing institution unlike any other company that distributes the profit as a bonus to the shareholders. It is simply an agency that works mainly for the benefit of the general public. Funds raised for institutional activities are used solely to cover the essential costs of the MF works.

The journal is also supported by the Advisory Board in terms of ideas, concepts, and processes.
