RIS data imports

17.11.2013, 13:45

I'm using Zotero as my bibliographic software. Importing RIS data into MaxQDA works fine. Is there a way to import an associated PDF file at the same time? Zotero has the option to include files in the export and creates a directory for the PDF. My goal is to 'link' the pre-coded data with the PDF, if that is possible. Thank you for any suggestions.

the RIS data format contains fields called "L1", "L2" ... for links to external files, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RIS_(file_format).

If zotero can export the link to your PDFs in L1 or L2 inside the RIS files MAXQDA should create a link inside the imported text document to the PDF. An import of the attached PDFs is not supported. (We have this on our wish list for program imporovements).

Any update on that?

I want to do a literature review and think about switching from Atlas.ti, but manually adding all the PDFs is not worth it.
