This research designed and proposed metadata elements for the long-term preservation of digital research outcomes collected and managed in electronic file form. Metadata structure of both domestic and foreign agencies that manage research outcomes and CERIF and PREMIS-preserved preservation metadata were referred to design the metadata elements. The metadata design was divided into research information, bibliographic information and archival information. Research information is divided into project, name and institution, and composed of eight top-level elements and 29 sub-level elements. Bibliographic information is composed of 13 top-level elements as the source of research reports. Archival information is composed of 18 top-level elements and 62 sub-level elements as the elements for context, structure, contents and management process of the electronic records.
