What is an EndNote file?

An EndNote file is a file format created by EndNote, a commercial reference management software that allows you to collect, organize, and cite sources in papers. An EndNote file stores information about references and bibliographies and allows you to easily import these into word-processing documents or other programs such as reference managers. The EndNote file extension is ENL, e.g. FinalPaper.enl.

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.
