You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ris. Files with the file extension .ris can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ris files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ris file?

Files with the .ris extension are integrated with technology developed and improved by RIS (Research Information Systems ). These files are mainly used for quickly and easily implementing citation features and bibliographies into text documents using a wide variety of applications developed with support for the functionalities made available in these RIS files. A standard RIS file is comprised of a set of codes which consist of no more than two characters and are formatted with tabs. The data in these RIS files also consist of their corresponding text values as saved by the user who created the RIS file. The content of these RIS files usually include the title of the written material inquestion, along with the date of publication, author, name of publisher, start and end page as well as the issue number of the material among other relevant details which may be added by the user. The development of these RIS files were primarily for the standardization of citation detail exchanges and collaboration work done for published materials. Most users of the RIS file format integrate the features embedded into these RIS files for populating digital libraries with the content that it provides. ASCII is the default text format specification implemented into many text documents, and this is also used in RIS files.

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ris files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ris. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
