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.
What is an Excel file?
