The CERIF TG Toolbox facilitates maintenance of the Common European Research Information Format (CERIF) - the world's most advanced standard for representing information about research. CERIF is maintained euroCRIS (http://www.eurocris.org/), a not-for-profit association of research information management professionals.
The CERIF TG Toolbox generates the CERIF-XML Schemas from the database model (maintained as the *.dmx file of TOAD Data Modeler), both original style (one namespace/schema per CERIF entity) and the updated style (introduced 2012: a common namespace, one schema, embedding).
It also generates the CERIF-XML instance documents (updated style) of the CERIF Semantic Layer entities, based on a *.xls or *.xlsx file.
While being most useful to the CERIF Task Group member who prepares a CERIF release, it is of use to anyone who wants to experiment with CERIF extensions.
The software is written in Java and XSLT. It is made available under the European Union Public License.
