RIS Import

This documentation is helpful if you are a third-party service that currently exports bibliographical data in RIS format.

EasyBib offers a way for services to post their RIS data to EasyBib, so their users can easily import citations and incorporate them into their EasyBib bibliography. The steps to add this integration are trivial.


  1. Make a form, method POST and action to the following endpoint:


  1. Add a hidden textarea field called records.
  2. Store the RIS data in that field.

Working example

Download or copy & paste the following code into a text file and open it up in your browser. Then, click the submit button.

<form method="post" action="http://www.easybib.com/impexport/index/add">

N2  - Previous research has suggested that both exposure to potentially traumatic events (PTEs) and emotional reactions to such events act as risk factors for subsequent exposure. Although some studies have implicated posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms as risk factors, extant research suffers from a number of methodological limitations, including the use of cross-sectional designs and student populations. The present study sought to address these limitations using a 2-year, 3-wave national probability household sample of 2,863 adult women. After controlling for demographic characteristics, prior exposure to PTEs, and Wave 1 depression and substance abuse, PTSD reexperiencing symptoms at Wave 1 predicted subsequent exposure to interpersonal violence victimization (IPVV) perpetrated by a nonintimate perpetrator; however, PTSD symptoms did not predict intimate partner IPVV. In addition, PTSD hyperarousal symptoms were unique predictors of subsequent exposure to other traumatic stressors. Findings suggest that efforts to prevent PTEs should focus attention on both prior exposure and PTSD symptoms in response to such exposure.
