In addition to Zotero and Mendeley, you can now sign-up to etalia using your ORCID account. When doing so, etalia fetches the publications that you have authored and builds your personal text fingerprint based on their content.
We anticipate the ORCID fingerprint to be less accurate than using the content of your reference manager as, likely, you read more papers than you write! However, supporting ORCID authentication allows scholars who do not use Mendeley or Zotero to still use etalia and use its features. And once you have sign-up with ORCID, you can always hook your reference manager later on and vice versa.
Etalia is officially a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization classified as a Public Charity. To reflect this new status, we have decided to change our domain name. Etalia will now live at https://etalia.org.
Etalia database just got bigger. We are now integrating scientific publications from the preprint journal BioRxiv and from all Springer journals. This brings the numbers of sources we are fetching on a daily basis to 5 (the others 3 being PubMed, ScienceDirect and arXiv).
In numbers, that’s 100,000+ papers a month that Etalia fetches, fingerprints, ranks and pushes to you personalized feeds to make your life, hopefully, easier.
Etalia received a catalyst grant award from Digital Science in recognition for its innovative new technology and goals to enable easier and more effective communication in the research community. Digital Science, which sponsors new software tools and technology for research, commented that they immediately saw value in what Etalia is trying to achieve (see press release here and here). Etalia shares this award with two other innovative startups: semiary and writefullapp (more on them here).
Etalia is now integrating pubpeer comments (www.pubpeer.com). Now, you can find all relevant pubpeer comments that match your personalized interest in the threads section of your feeds.
We are now entering beta testing of Etalia, your new portal for scientific discoveries and discussions. If you want to test it, sign-up at etalia.io and tell us what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
