What is a PubMed ID?

A PubMed ID (or PMID) is a 1-8 digit unique identification number assigned to all records in PubMed. PMIDs are assigned to research articles as well as other documents published in indexed journals, including letters to the editor and opinion pieces.

What is a RIS file?

A RIS file is a bibliographic citation file saved in a format developed by the Research Information Systems company. It is most commonly used to transfer information between reference managers or to export data from a database into a reference manager. A RIS tag usually contains two letters, two spaces, and a hyphen, e.g. "PY - 2023", which would mean 2023 is the year of publication. Other information stored in a RIS file is typically author, publication title, publisher, and other necessary information.
