    Dear all,
    when importing from a RIS file, the field 'M3' is not imported correctly. E.g. when importing

    M3 - Masterarbeit zur Erlangung des akademischen Grades Master of Arts (M.A.)

    the record will be treated as 'Ph.D. thesis'.

    How can I correct this?
    Thanks and best wishes,
    Peter

    You can edit includes/import.inc.php to put M3 into the thesis field. This is a new change to the RIS specification since our last release. Bibutils had used the 'U1' field for this. I'm not certain where it goes in the current version.

    While the RIS specification sets M3 as the appropriate field to store this, it does not standardize/enumerate the values for that field. If we wanted to standardize the input somehow (in part to make the export to masters vs phd automagically work), it would take a bit more thought.
