iSchool doc student Dong Joon Lee earns highly coveted NSF internship

image001 Dong Joon Lee, doctoral candidate in the School of Information interned this summer at Research Data Alliance. Lee was one of eight selected for the highly coveted internship, which is provided by the Research Data Alliance (RDA) and funded by a National Science Foundation grant.

He was mentored by Michael Witt from the Distributed Data Curation Center (D2C2) at Purdue University Libraries and by Beth Plale from Indiana University.

During his time with RDA, Lee helped identify the need to formalize an understanding of the metadata managed by the ORCID registry of researcher identifiers. He was able to work with ORCID to draft a Dublin Core Application Profile for this need.

“This was a great opportunity for me to work and collaborate with people in research data and identifier communities,” said Lee.

Lee’s work at RDA will be presented as a poster at the 4th Plenary Meeting of the Research Data Alliance in September in Amsterdam. Richard Urban of FSU’s iSchool and Dong Joon’s dissertation committee also participated in the study.
