New collaboration between Enago and Overleaf
Overleaf has entered into a new publishing services partnership with Enago, a leading provider of language editing solutions for scientific researchers. This new collaboration provides Overleaf users with streamlined access to Enago’s pre-submission English editing services, if they wish to use it.
Under the partnership, if Overleaf users would like to purchase language editing services, they will be able to transfer their manuscripts to Enago by clicking the ‘publish’ link within their Overleaf account and choosing ‘Enago’. Authors can now easily write and collaborate on their documents, submit to Enago for language editing, then submit to the journal or publisher of their choice.
“Enago and Overleaf share the same ethos and our partnership is a step closer to the goal of supporting authors to produce publication-ready manuscripts. With writing, professional editing, and publication support streamlined together, traditional manuscript preparation and submission is drastically simplified. Overleaf is a dynamic, forward thinking start-up and we are glad to be a part of this collaborative writing and publishing system,” Sharad Mittal, CEO of Crimson Interactive Inc.
John Hammersley, CEO and co-founder of Overleaf said,
“This is an excellent partnership for Overleaf users. We are always looking for new tools and services to help the research community and the Enago language editing service does just that. It provides users with access to an excellent language editing option, ensuring that author documents are clean and grammatically correct.”
Overleaf users will receive a 10% discount off of the Enago language editing service.
