What is a RIS file?

A RIS file typically contains information such as title, author, publication date, keywords, publisher, issue number as well as the start and end page. Data in a RIS file are arranged as a series of lines defined by two-character codes and a corresponding value e.g. "PY - 2020" which refers to 2020 as the year of publication. RIS files are used for the exchange of citation information and can be viewed and edited using text editors.
