The article examines the potential for using the Common European Research Information Format in conjunction with the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard to provide contextual information for a digital research output. Both are key standards within their respective communities (the former in research information management, the latter in digital library metadata), but each employs a different approach to information architecture, which renders their combination problematic, The article examines three possible ways to use CERIF and METS in conjunction and suggests possible changes of approach to the METS standard to resolve some of the problems that arise.
