Meet our ambassadors

The Crossref Ambassador Program is an exciting and important program initiated in early 2018, and one which fully embraces a key strategic focus—to adapt to expanding constituencies.

Our Ambassadors are enthusiastic volunteers who work within the global academic community in a variety of ways—as librarians, researchers, publishers, and societies,—and all of whom share a strong belief in the mission-driven work we do to improve scholarly research communication. They support us by using their industry expertise, local knowledge, and translation skills to represent Crossref at regional events—providing training to our members in different languages, locations and time zones.

My side hustle has transformed me from a full-time medical professor to a flower designer, research ethics lecturer, family therapist, and character traits instructor five years ago. But my involvement as a researcher (Hallym University College of Medicine), board member and reviewer for SCIE level journals continues to this day. During my experience as an associate editor of two major medical education journals in Korea (KJME and JEEHP), I discovered the excellent tools offered by Crossref. In light of how the two journals have benefited from Crossref’s diverse programs, I am looking forward to my role as an ambassador of Crossref. I always find that anything volunteered that does not involve money is always the most fun!
