What is a DOI?

A DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is a unique alphanumeric string used to identify journal articles, books, or other documents. When a journal article gets published, the publisher assigns a DOI and makes it available electronically.

What is a RIS file?

The RIS file format is a standardized file format developed by a company called Research Information Systems. Most reference management tools use the RIS format to transfer citation data between different programs. Most commonly, the RIS format is used for exporting search results from a database into a reference manager. A RIS file typically contains metadata such as title, author, publication date, keywords, publisher, issue number, and start and end page.
