The annual Asia Oceania Mass Spectrometry Conference (AOMSC) has offered an open channel to exchange scientific advances and new findings among participants from Asia and Oceania region since 2010 (Tsukuba), and AOMSC has been successfully expanding through the meetings in Busan (2011), Kyoto (2012), Taiwan (2013), and Beijing (2014). Mass Spectrometry is now a vital analytical method to unveil the unknown scientific findings used across a broad range of area including academic research, biotechnological development, pharmaceutical and clinical tests, and environmental assessments. Considering the increasing role of Asian and Oceanian countries on world economy, MS sciences in this region will contribute more to the future science and technologies.

This special issue of Mass Spectrometry Letters was aimed to invite the leaders in mass spectrometry who participated in the 5th AOMSC held in Beijing, July, 2014 in order to highlight and introduce their presentations together with the recent advancements in research. Published articles include five contributions from China, Japan, and Korea, on DART-MS, imaging MS, complex-assisted ESI methods for unstable compounds, and the MS-based determination of a metal binding/ dissociation constant for a peptide.

I would like to thank all authors, reviewers, and the team from KSMS for their enthusiastic support for this special issue of Mass Spectrometry Letters to memorize the 5th AOMSC.
