Research Information Systems File Format

Other names: RIS

A Research Information Systems (RIS) file is a plain text file that can contain multiple references. RIS files can be exported from reference software such as EndNote and Reference Manager. Each reference is composed of a variable number of fields; and each field is preceded by a six-character label or "tag." Some tags are specific only to certain reference types. Each tag must be in a specific format, and certain other rules apply to all tags. Please note that no current homepage or contact for this format can be found. Please get in touch if you can provide any information.
