There's an App for That: Collaborative Publishing with Overleaf
How can our users streamline the writing, editing and publishing of their scientific documents? Traditional tools such as Microsoft Word Online or Google Docs have been used for some time now in multidisciplinary collaborative writing. But challenges such as format compatibility mean that scientists and engineers have continued to turn to specialized programming languages such as LaTeX, which have been developed to address the particular needs of writing in sciences. Tools such as Overleaf are empowering scientific collaborative writing and publication by offering both LaTeX and a more user-friendly Rich Text mode in one enhanced, cloud-based platform.
