Korean Society for Mass Spectrometry (KSMS) made a decision at the beginning of
the year 2010 to launch a journal and published the first issue of Mass Spectrometry
Letters in December 2010 as a quarterly journal. The number of submissions from
the various countries is continuously increasing, 4 issues with 22 articles have been
published in the year 2015. I would like to thank Editor-in-Chief and all the
Associate Editors serving for the development of the journal.
The current issue contains a review article regarding ICP-MS techniques for clinical
and biological analysis and five letters on discrimination of diastereomers,
application of stochastic process, mass fragmentation patterns of polyphenolic
compounds, determination of globotriaosylsphingosine for screen of fabric disease
and investigation of Ne and He buffer gases cooled Ar+ ion clouds in a Paul ion trap.
The present Editor-in Chief, Professor Myeong Hee Moon has become the president
of KSMS from 2016, and Dr. Yong-Hyeon Yim will represent Mass Spectrometry
Letters as new Editor-in-Chief by filling the role of former Chief. 2016 KSMS annual
summer conference will be held in Gyeongju Hwabaek International Convention
Center (HICO). I expect and hope that more members of KSMS could attend KSMS
annual summer conference with the better research results and share their results in
Mass Spectrometry Letters
I appreciate all the contributing authors , reviewers, and editorial members.
