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.
