Exploring the Connected Culture of Collaboration - a new #OverleafReport
By John Hammersley
Real-time collaboration network visualization by Ian Calvert

I'm delighted to announce that today, Overleaf has released a new report which takes an in-depth look at active collaborative research patterns. Rather than examining post-published collaboration patterns, “The Connected Culture of Collaboration” explores how real-time information on collaboration can provide insights in collaboration patterns on national, state and institution-level scales.

Supported and contributed to by Digital Science, the report features a number of thought leadership pieces and includes a foreword from Laurel Haak, Executive Director, ORCID. The report focuses on the varying aspects of collaboration: how collaboration is valued in science, the role of university libraries in research communication, and how the growth of open access facilitates collaboration.

Four years of collaboration with the LaTeX Community forums and sites
By John Hammersley

Just over four years ago we began one of our first collaborations – working with Stefan Kottwitz of the LaTeX Community forums and sites such as TeXample.net and pgfplots.net to provide a direct way for users of those sites to open up code examples directly in Overleaf (then called WriteLaTeX).

To get an idea of how it works, try clicking on the image below. It will open up in Overleaf for immediate editing online, just as if you'd clicked on the "Open in Overleaf" link on the example itself.
