Creating a publication file for an OpenScholar website

The list of publications is an important part of your researcher's website.
Publications can be uploaded manually, one at a time, but can also be uploaded in batches using a BibTeX or a RIS file.
This guide will show you how to create these files from different sources.

Please note: The BibTex or RIS file does not update automatically and cannot be opened by word processing programs.
