    London – May 16: Overleaf is excited to announce a new partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry. Through this partnership, authors submitting to their Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP) journal will have access to the award-winning Overleaf collaborative cloud-based writing and reviewing tool with 1-click submission into the PCCP ScholarOne submission system.

    RSC Template in Overleaf

    A PCCP journal template is available within the Overleaf platform to help authors write, collaborate and publish their work in the correct journal format. Once authors are finished writing, they can quickly and easily submit to PCCP using the 1-click submission link within Overleaf. All files and necessary information will be seamlessly transferred to the PCCP submission system – greatly simplifying the author’s submission experience.

    Caroline Burley, Journals Operations Manager, Publishing Services & Production at the Royal Society of Chemistry, says:

    “Our authors want the submission process to be quick and simple, so we’re very pleased to be partnering with Overleaf to offer this benefit to PCCP’s authors. This development makes the process of submitting a paper to PCCP from the Overleaf platform as easy as the click of a button.”

    John Hammersley, Founder & CEO of Overleaf says:

    “I'm hugely excited for Overleaf to be able to support the Royal Society of Chemistry, the PCCP journal and their authors through this new partnership. Simplifying and streamlining an author’s writing and submission experience is a major goal for Overleaf and this partnership addresses that perfectly.”

    Links to the template and Overleaf platform will be available within the PCCP journal website and author guidelines.
