It has been my pleasure to witness the growth of this young journal “Mass
Spectrometry Letters”, since its first volume published in December, 2010. During
the last five years, Mass Spectrometry Letters became an important place where we
mass spectrometry people communicate each other, making significant contribution
to the mass spectrometry society worldwide. As a member of editorial board, I
deeply appreciate all the contributions that made today’s Mass Spectrometry Letters
In this issue, Mass Spectrometry Letters provides two invited articles accounting for
the sample preparation for MALDI mass spectrometry and the enrichment strategies
for phosphoproteome. Along with the informative reviews, this issue also publishes
original research letters touching the important subjects such as ionization,
identification, and evaluation, which you might not want to miss.
As announced by Korean Society for Mass Spectrometry (KSMS), 2015 KSMS
summer conference will be held at BEXCO, Pusan, Korea from August 19th to 21st.
Its symposiums will cover most of mass spectrometry areas including MS
fundamentals & instrumentations, elements & materials, food & environments,
pharmaceutics, bio-medical & bioscience, and so on. I look forward to seeing you all
there, a beautiful place to enjoy summer time, with full scientific enthusiasm.
See you at 2015 KSMS Summer Conference!
