Converting RIS citations to Bibtex citations

According to this site (http://blogs.bu.edu/mhirsch/2012/04/converting-ris-citations-to-bibtex-biblatex-citations/), there is a way to convert RIS citation to Bibtex in Ubuntu.

Here’s how:

  1. Download most recent copy from:http://sourceforge.net/projects/bibutils/files/
  2. Extract to /tmp directory
  3. type cd /tmp/bibutils*
  4. type ./configure && make && sudo make install

Now, to convert from RIS to BIBTEX, imagine i have cit02.ris, type:
ris2xml citation01.ris | xml2bib > citation01.bib

Thanks Michael Hirsch.
