When the former KSMS president Myeong Hee Moon and the current president Yong-Hyeon Yim offered me the chief editor position of Mass Spectrometry Letters last year, I asked myself whether I had an energy and capability to pull up the Mass Spectrometry Letters on the higher level. Soon I realized that I was totally wrong. On the reflection of the short history of Mass Spectrometry Letters, it has always been the desire and necessity of the KSMS members and many international scientists in the mass spectrometry field to have a short mass spectrometry-oriented letter format journal that have driven the Mass Spectrometry Letters forward. Then it became very clear to me that the only thing I can and should do is to steer the Mass Spectrometry Letters into the right track and to serve the desire and necessity of the people who have put our Mass Spectrometry Letters at the current stage. While we, the editorial associate editor team members and I, are preparing for this March issue of 2018 together, I further came to believe that my thought was correct. As we continue to serve the desire of many mass spectrometry-loving scientists in Korea, Asian countries and other countries, our journal Mass Spectrometry Letters will continuously grow up, eventually be enlisted in the long-dreaming SCI index

As expected, this March issue was successfully published with the efforts and toils of many associate editors. In particular, Prof. Yong Seok Choi, a manuscript handling editor, exerted his miraculous energy to finely finish and tune this issue into this beautiful piece. I would like to thank him and other editorial associate editors for their on-going sacrifice and passion for our Mass Spectrometry Letters.

A steady step and one-team spirit will continue in this year!
