As a current JELIS intern whose two-year appointment is winding down, I offer my whole-hearted endorsement of the internship.
I learned much in the way of behind-the-scenes happenings of research publication, and it has been an invaluable experience.   
Sincerest thanks to Dr. Burnett and Dr. Kazmer, and to Nicole A. Cooke (my co-intern), Janet Capps, and Sung Jae Park, for making the JELIS internship experience so worthwhile.
