Professor James Friend

Just want to say that I am really grateful for Overleaf, it has enabled a slew of research and teaching development in my work that would have been annoyingly difficult before. Even people who don’t know LaTeX are participating with me on research proposals and that’s saying something if you know what LaTeX is like for the uninitiated. Thanks. And thanks for the support!!

There's nothing complicated or difficult for you to install, and you can start using LaTeX right now, even if you've never seen it before. Overleaf comes with a complete, ready to go LaTeX environment which runs on our servers.

With Overleaf you get the same LaTeX set-up wherever you go. By working with your colleagues and students on Overleaf, you know that you're not going to hit any version inconsistencies or package conflicts.

We support almost all LaTeX features, including inserting images, bibliographies, equations, and much more! Read about all the exciting things you can do with Overleaf in our LaTeX guides.

Overleaf makes sure that you're always up to date with your collaborators and what they are doing. There is only a single master version of each document which everyone has access to. It's impossible to make conflicting changes, and you don't have to wait for your colleagues to send you the latest draft before you can keep working.

If multiple people want to work on a document at the same time then that's no problem. You can see where your colleagues are typing directly in the editor and their changes show up on your screen immediately.

Overleaf is so easy to get started with that you'll be able to invite your non-LaTeX colleagues to contribute directly to your LaTeX documents. They'll be productive from day one and be able to pick up small amounts of LaTeX as they go.

Overleaf includes a history of all of your changes so you can see exactly who changed what, and when. This makes it extremely easy to keep up to date with any progress made by your collaborators and allows you to review recent work.

In a collaboration or on your own, sometimes mistakes are made. Reverting back to previous versions is simple and removes the risk of losing work or regretting a change.
