The technique used to visualize the spatial distribution of components such as biomarker, metabolites, proteins by their molecular masses is known as imaging mass spectrometry. The emerging technologies in the field of imaging mass spectrometry are MALDI imaging and SIMS imaging.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
