    Given the longstanding popularity of LaTeX in the computer science community, we were very excited here at Overleaf to see the launch of the new PeerJ Computer Science journal earlier this month.

    To celebrate, we're delighted to announce that we have once again partnered with PeerJ to provide a special offer for authors publishing to their journals.

    Anyone signing up for an annual Overleaf Pro or Pro+ account is entitled to a special discount at PeerJ; they’ll waive their $40 post-acceptance fee on any of their paid plans meaning you pay the same fee whether your article is at pre- or post-acceptance stage.

    Alternatively, if you sign up for a PeerJ plan you'll get get three months free of Overleaf Pro+ on us - it's as simple as that.

    If you haven't already heard about it, PeerJ is the award winning academic open access journal serving the Biological and Medical sciences. It is fast, prestigious and beautiful, and PeerJ Computer Science is their new open access journal covering all subject areas in computer science.

    Current holders of an annual Overleaf Pro / Pro+ plan can also take advantage of this offer – simply log on and activate here.

    How to submit your papers from Overleaf to PeerJ

    As an Overleaf user, you can also submit your articles directly to their journals or pre-print server. Papers can be submitted from Overleaf in two ways:

    1. Using the PeerJ submission template, which contains a prominent 'Submit to PeerJ' link in the editor topbar. Use of this template is entirely optional, but it may save time on formatting later.

    2. Simply by opening the publish menu from any document and using the 'Submit to PeerJ' link.

    Once you're ready to send, your files and relevant metadata are exported directly to PeerJ, and their staff will then contact you to complete the submission process.
