This poster reports on a study that examines the practices of metadata use in a research information management (RIM) system ResearchGate. Understanding these practices can help institutional repositories to better align their RIM metadata models with researchers' needs and priorities. The study identified three categories of RIM system users. The study's preliminary findings suggest that community members are more willing to share their personal information and provide full-texts of their works on ResearchGate compared to readers and personal record managers.
