Aims and scope

European Journal of Mass Spectrometry (EJMS) is a peer review journal covering all areas of mass spectrometry. Whilst “European” in its publishing base, its distribution, editors and authors are truly global. EJMS provides high quality science at a fair price.

Guaranteed Publication in three weeks!

For authors wishing to have their mass spectrometry research published in European Journal of Mass Spectrometry in the fastest possible time, we are able to offer guaranteed publication of Letters within three weeks, subject of course to satisfactory review. Reviewers of Letters are typically drawn from the Editorial Advisory Board; further information.

EJMS Protocols

This new section in EJMS has been introduced to facilitate communication of methodology—practical details of how to be successful with experiments in mass spectrometry. We are pleased that Jonas Bergquist has taken on the role of Protocols Editor. Submissions as EJMS Protocols will be peer-reviewed and will benefit from the same high standard of copy editing as regular papers. Discover more about EJMS Protocols.
