Korean Society for Mass Spectrometry (KSMS) published the first issue of Mass Spectrometry Letters in December 2010. As an associate editor of Mass Spectrometry Letters it has been a great pleasure for me to witness the development of Mass Spectrometry Letters. Each issue of Mass Spectrometry Letters contains at least five excellent articles. Now Mass Spectrometry Letters is indexed in Scopus and Korea Citation Index. The number of submissions from the countries other than Korea is continuously increasing. We hope to see that Mass Spectrometry Letters becomes a journal representing many international scientists who would like to publish their articles in a speedy manner. The review process usually takes less than two weeks.
The current issue contains a review article providing a genuine information on the characterization of erythropoietin glycome and four research letters on optimum radius size of ion traps, N-alkyl/benzyl Isatin derivatives, Peltier heating assisted low temperature plasma ionization, trace analysis of uranium and plutonium using MCICP- MS, and MALDI-TOF analysis of binding between DNA and peptides containing lysine and tryptophan.

This summer KSMS held 2015 KSMS summer conference in Pusan, Korea from August 19th to 21st, hosting more than 400 scientists. Next summer conference will be held in Gyeongju, Korea from August 17th to 19th, 2016. Gyeongju, located in southeast Korea, was the capital of the Silla Kingdom for a thousand years. I hope to see you all next year in the beautiful historical city.
