What's the best format for easily importing text?

I have about 400 references to add to a Zotero library. They're all artworks and the only fields filled in are author, year and title.

I don't really want to type each of these in by hand.

What's the easiest text format to import them in?

(If you could provide an example of the syntax that would be great.)
  • probably RIS. Zotero also exports that, so you can easily generate your own examples (right-click --> export selected items then open the file with any text editor).
  • OK thanks I'll take a look at the Zotero export.
