Vicki Wysocki appointed editor in chief of the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2022 — The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) is pleased to welcome Vicki Wysocki, Ph.D., of The Ohio State University as the first female editor in chief of the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry. The journal is published by ACS on behalf of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS).

“It is an honor to help continue moving this society journal forward,” says Wysocki. “I am a huge supporter of our publishing partnership with ACS Publications. This arrangement has been providing a level of publishing support that the journal had not had previously.”

At Ohio State, Wysocki is a professor in the department of chemistry and biochemistry, the director of the Campus Chemical Instrument Center, the Ohio Eminent Scholar of Macromolecular Structure and Function, and an associate faculty director of the Foods for Health Research Initiative. Her research interests in mass spectrometry include gas-phase ion structure analysis, gas-phase fragmentation mechanisms, mass spectrometry-based structural biology, and proteomics and metabolomics. She has a rich history with both ASMS and ACS, serving as an associate editor for Analytical Chemistry from 2015 to 2022, and she was vice president of programs and the past president of ASMS from 2014 to 2020.

“We are thrilled that Professor Wysocki will be taking on the role of editor in chief of the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry,” says James Milne, Ph.D., president, ACS Publications Division. “She is an accomplished scientist and a leader in the field of mass spectrometry who brings a wealth of knowledge and leadership to the role.”

The Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry 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. The journal publishes research articles, as well as communications, application notes, and accounts and perspectives. 

The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress. ACS’ mission is to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and all its people. The Society is a global leader in promoting excellence in science education and providing access to chemistry-related information and research through its multiple research solutions, peer-reviewed journals, scientific conferences, eBooks and weekly news periodical Chemical & Engineering News. ACS journals are among the most cited, most trusted and most read within the scientific literature; however, ACS itself does not conduct chemical research. As a leader in scientific information solutions, its CAS division partners with global innovators to accelerate breakthroughs by curating, connecting and analyzing the world’s scientific knowledge. ACS’ main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
