Frequently Asked Questions about our bibliographic format converter
How does the Paperpile EndNote to RIS converter work?

All input and output data is deleted 24h after job completion.
What is an EndNote file?
EndNote is a commercial reference management software allowing you to collect, organize, and format references and bibliographies. EndNote groups your references into libraries with the file extension *.enl and a corresponding *.data folder. References can be exported from EndNote into word processing programs or other references managers as EndNote files and can have extensions such as *.xml, *.txt, or *.enw.
What is a RIS file?
A RIS file is a tag file format created for the exchange of bibliographic data by reference management programs. In addition to being used to transfer data between different programs, it is also used to export search results from a database into a reference manager. A RIS tag usually contains two letters, two spaces, and a hyphen, and a tag would look like this: "PY - 2018", which means the 2018 is the year of publication. A RIS file contains metadata such as author names, publication titles, date of publication, and other necessary information to create a citation or bibliography.
