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.

What is a CSV file?

A CSV file is a comma-separated values file used to format and store data in a structured format. It is mostly used in spreadsheet programs like Microsoft Excel, Numbers for Mac, and Google Sheets, but it can also be used by reference management programs to store reference lists and exchange information.
