Read Journal Table of Contents

The Journal of Mass Spectrometry (JMS, ISI Impact Factor 2011: 3.268) publishes papers on a broad range of topics of interest to scientists working in both fundamental and applied areas involving the study of gaseous ions.

The aim of JMS is to serve the scientific community with information provided and arranged to help senior investigators to better stay abreast of new discoveries and studies in their own field, to make them aware of events and developments in associated fields, and to provide students and newcomers the basic tools with which to learn fundamental and applied aspects of mass spectrometry.

The scope of the journal is wide, encompassing all aspects of mass spectrometry. Suitable topics include, but are not restricted to, instrument design and development, ionization processes, mechanisms and energetics of gaseous ion reactions, spectroscopy of gaseous ions, theoretical aspects, ion structure, analysis of compounds of biological interest, methodology development, applications to elemental analysis and inorganic chemistry, computer-related applications and developments, and environmental chemistry and other fields that utilize innovative aspects of mass spectrometry as a critical component of the work.

General Information

JMS publishes original research articles, accelerated communications and letters to the editor. In addition, special features include "Perspective" articles, "Tutorial" articles, and "Current Literature" listings. Book reviews, conference reports and forthcoming events will also be published.

Manuscripts submitted for possible publication in JMS should follow the general format described below and must be original works by the authors, with the exception of referenced materials or passages used with the written consent of the copyright holder. Also, the manuscript must not have been, nor will be, submitted for publication elsewhere at any time during its consideration by JMS. In multi-authored papers, while a designated author will be the person the Journal will correspond with, it is understood that this author will bear the burden of communicating with all authors and represent their joint decisions.
