Boston – Feb 25: The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and Overleaf have announced a partnership providing PNAS authors with direct access to Overleaf, a cloud-based scientific authoring platform that makes it easy for researchers to write, collaborate, and publish documents.

Through this partnership, authors wishing to submit to PNAS will be able to conveniently open Overleaf customized PNAS LaTeX templates from within the PNAS journal website. These writing templates will open directly in the Overleaf platform, allowing authors to easily write in the correct journal format, collaborate with other authors and colleagues, and see their composed document in real-time, as they write. Once the manuscript is complete, the author can efficiently submit to PNAS through the PNAS submission link within the Overleaf platform.

John Hammersley, Founder & CEO of Overleaf says:

“We’re excited to be working with PNAS. These templates and submission links will be an excellent resource for our users and they fit perfectly with our goal of making scientific authorship easier.”

Daniel Salsbury, Deputy Executive Editor says:

“We are always looking for ways to make the manuscript submission process easier for authors. The Overleaf technology is a big step forward for our authors and we are excited to see it in action.”

PNAS templates and submission links are now available here and listed on the PNAS website here.
