As part of EU COST Action BM1104 Mass Spectrometry Imaging: New Tools for Healthcare Research a minimum reporting requirements for ms imaging experiments document is being formulated. This would form the basis of the recommendations given to journal editors/referees as to whether the quality of data reporting in a MS imaging paper is adequate (before acceptance for publication). The document is applicable to all ionisation techniques.
Feedback on the document is being collected via COST representatives and the discussion forum on the MALDI-MSI website.
If you are working in any form of ms imaging please have a read and give your feedback either direct or if you wish via
Professor Malcolm Clench (firstname.lastname@example.org)
