Publishing Partnership: JASMS and ACS Publications

The Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (JASMS) will have a new publisher beginning January 1, 2020. Under the partnership, JASMS authors and readers will benefit from ACS Publications’ state-of-the-art digital publishing capabilities. As an ACS Publications partner journal, JASMS retains full editorial independence under the governance and oversight of ASMS. ACS Publications will provide its full range of industry-leading publishing and operational expertise, well known to researchers worldwide. The journal will also benefit from ACS’ range of flexible open access publishing options.

Journal Scope

JASMS publishes research spanning all aspects of mass spectrometry, including basic and applied areas of scientific inquiry in which mass spectrometry plays a role. The journal’s distinguished editorial team is led by Joseph A. Loo, Ph.D., of the University California, Los Angeles, supported by an exceptional group of Associate Editors and Editorial Advisory Board members whose range of expertise reflects the breadth of this vibrant field.

More About JASMS

Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (JASMS) is a monthly, peer-reviewed journal that covers all aspects of mass spectrometry, including fields of scientific inquiry in which mass spectrometry can play a role.

JASMS was launched in 1990 as a bi-monthly publication with Michael L. Gross as Editor in Chief.  In 1993, the publication frequency was increased to monthly.   

Comprehensive in scope, the journal publishes papers on both fundamentals and applications of mass spectrometry. Fundamental subjects include instrumentation principles, design, and demonstration, structures and chemical properties of gas-phase ions, studies of thermodynamic properties, ion spectroscopy, chemical kinetics, mechanisms of ionization, theories of ion fragmentation, cluster ions, and potential energy surfaces.

Papers that report on an application should have as a principal focus the use of mass spectrometry to solve a qualitative or quantitative problem. Application subjects include, but are not limited to, structural elucidation, biopolymer sequencing, development or validation of new methodology, proteomics and other 'omics related research, and environmental and forensic measurements. Papers describing computer applications will be considered.

In addition to full papers, the journal offers Communications, Application Notes, and Accounts and Perspectives. 

ASMS members receive subscription and access to JASMS as a benefit of membership.
