To use Etalia you need access to the internet and the Etalia homepage, that you probably have already if you are reading this. You also need an account with a reference library (e.g. Zotero or Mendeley). Use your reference library credentials to sign in to Etalia from the homepage.
Zotero and Mendeley are the
currently two reference software managers that provide
the ability for third party application, like Etalia, to access your library content
through authentication. Both use the
OAuth protocol, which is a widely adopted, open protocol for users to delegate
authorization in a secure manner. OAuth is used to authorize requests between Etalia
and your reference managers.
Etalia will serve other reference managers as support for OAuth is implemented.
Etalia needs your email address when you sign in with your reference manager account and asks for your first name and last name. By granting access to your reference software manager, you also allows Etalia to get in sync with the publications you save in your library. Etalia does not share any of this information with third parties.
Etalia checks what you are reading in your Reference Library. Etalia leverages the content of your library using recent advances in natural language processing, machine learning, and statistics to understand your interests. Etalia builds news streams that match your personal interests based on your library text content. Reading a new paper or extending your research interests? Etalia will automatically adapt.
