BIBLISOHINY: Dimensions CSV convert error; non-character argument.

I am using Biblioshiny for a bibliometric analysis using data exported from DIMENSIONS. While the Dimensiosn CSV file is being converted in bibliographic format, it outputs an error: STRSPLIT: Non-character argument. Below is the Rstudio output. Please help me as I rely on dimensions as it is free, and do not have access to Scopus or WoS, which are subscription based.
