The technique where mass spectrometry is applied to study proteins is known as Protein mass spectrometry. There are two steps used for characterizing proteins: In the first step, proteins are ionized by electrospray ionization (ESI) or matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI). In the second, proteins are introduced to a mass analyzer and enzymatically digested into smaller peptides using a protease. At the end peptides are introduced into the mass spectrometer and identified by peptide mass fingerprinting or tandem mass spectrometry.
Scholarly journal is a peer-reviewed journal in which scholarship relating to a particular academic discipline is published. Scholarly journals serve as forums for the introduction and presentation for scrutiny of new research, and the critique of existing research. Content typically takes the form of articles presenting original research, review articles, and book reviews. The term Scholarly journal applies to scholarly publications in all fields; this article discusses the aspects common to all academic field journals.
