Abstract: Shows the results of a survey by questionnaire sent to the managers of 2, 165 digital repositories registered at OpenDOAR. Its purpose was to identify the existence and the use of application profiles and related metadata schemas. Of this total, 431 questionnaires were filled. The survey enabled the identification of metadata application profiles, as well as schemas and metadata elements/properties used within these repositories. According to the results, the number of repositories that use or provide metadata application profiles is 13, which we consider as very low. The Dublin Core remains as the most commonly used metadata schema, followed by MARC 21, METS and MODS. The dataset that resulted from the survey is openly available at RepositóriUM, the institutional repository of the University of Minho
