Frequently Asked Questions about our bibliographic format converter

What is a DOI?

DOI stands for Digital Object Identifier and describes a persistent alphanumeric identifier for documents published online. These documents can be journal articles or books for example. Some citation styles require you to include a DOI at the end of the citation.

What is a RIS file?

RIS is a standardized tag format created to enable citation programs to exchange data. The RIS file format tag consists of two letters, two spaces, and a hyphen, e.g. "AU - Hattie, John" means the author’s name is John Hattie. Other information that a RIS file contains is usually the publication title, year of publication, publisher, issue number, keywords, and start and end page. RIS files are stored as plain text files and can be viewed and edited using text editors.
