eLife simplifies submission for authors through new collaborations
By Mary Anne Baynes

Cambridge, UK – Friday, January 13, 2017: eLife is integrating new authoring tools into its submission system to give authors more choice about how they submit their work.

eLife, the non-profit initiative inspired by research funders and led by scientists, aims to help scientists accelerate discovery by operating a platform for research communication that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours in science. eLife is now working with Overleaf,, PubRef and Authorea, to allow authors to write and submit research to the journal as quickly and easily as possible.

Want to win great Overleaf prizes for your whole institution? Check out our Campus Challenge 2017! It’s fun and free – all you have to do is use Overleaf and encourage your friends and classmates to do so too!

Everyone who signs up from your institution – including students, faculty and staff – will earn ‘ducks’ for working on Overleaf. Each duck adds to your institution’s total score and at the end of the challenge, March 31, 2017, the institution with the most ducks wins free Overleaf Pro accounts for everyone at that institution, or one of our special prizes if your institution already has a site license!
