What is an RIS file?

As part of my internship in Instruction at Hillman Library, I’ve been experimenting with recording video with Jing, converting it to MPEG4 files, uploading them to YouTube and embedding them into Libguides.

The video below is part of my Advanced Research Tools@ Pitt Libguide, related to citation managers.

A RIS file, extension .ris, is a document which provides citation information for an associated publication (such as a journal article), in a format that can be read by a citation manager such as Mendeley (shown here), EndNote, and Zotero.
