When I reflect back the history of 占쏙옙Mass Spectrometry Letters (MS Letters)占쏙옙, the former KSMS president Prof. Seung Koo Shin and then the executive board members made a big decision at the beginning of the year 2010 to launch a journal that represents KSMS and hopefully Asian MS community. Then, the current KSMS president Dr. Hyun Sik Kim (then editor-in-chief) and a handful of new faces (associate editors), including Dr. Yong-Hyeon Yim, Prof. Jeongkwon Kim, Dr. Jong-Ho Park, Dr. Jae Ick Lee, Prof. Sang Beom Han, Prof. Kwangpyo Kim, and me, worked as a team to name, format, and edit the journal and finally issued the first issue of Mass Spectrometry Letters at the end of December, 2010. Since then, with a great teamwork and dedications of all the editors, the tradition of MS Letters has continued to present the current issue, the second issue of volume 5 , 2014. But more importantly, it has always been the passion and sacrifice of many KSMS members, authors, reviewers, and readers that made 占쏙옙MS Letters占쏙옙 become our journal and our history, I strongly believe. Whenever I mention the MS Letters to my colleagues in my department, I proudly say that our KSMS has a strong focal point and MS Letters proves it. As it has always been, MS Letters will also act as a focal point of many KSMS members in the future. To proudly claim that we have a strong academic tradition in Korea, we need a solid and well-organized journal. I believe that our 占쏙옙MS Letters占쏙옙 is growing as a representative analytical science journal in the Korean scientific community at a steady and solid pace. As the KSMS members have always done so, I would like to sincerely ask the KSMS members to show your interest and love to MS Letters more than before. With the continued support and passion, we may soon see that MS Letters become a proud journal that represents the Asian mass spectrometry community beyond the Korean mass spectrometry community.
