Acknowledging contributions of Dr. Hyunsik Kim
It is a great honor to write my first Editorial in Mass Spectrometry Letters by filling the role of Editor-in-Chief
after Dr. Hyun Sik Kim who becomes the president of Korea Society of Mass Spectrometry (KSMS) from 2014. First of all,
I would like to show my great acknowledgements to Dr. Kim for his contributions to the journal as the founding Editor-in-Chief.
Since the journal was first launched in Dec. 2010 as a quarterly journal, 13 issues with 76 articles have been published.
During his tenure, Dr. Kim established the on-line manuscript submission system along with the participation of the journal
to Open Access system and the enlistment of the journal in the database of Scopus. He also added two Associate Editors
from abroad to make total 10 Editors who had made timely contributions to organize reviewers for the handling of
submitted manuscripts. I should not miss thanking Prof. Han Bin Oh at Sogang University for his enormous efforts to
the journal behind the curtain. By taking the duty, I first of all would like to thank all the Associate Editors who continue serving as Editors of the journal.
I want to express my sincere thanks to the new managing Editor, Prof. Yong Seok Choi at Dankook University,
for his sacrifice in entire scheduling and arrangements in the production of journal in time. We are now in the stage
of putting efforts to make the journal expanded in terms of the number of articles as well as the quality of published works.
For the growth of the journal, I will try hard to make the journal get reputation in publishing excellent research outcomes
in the field of mass spectrometry and related science.
