We’re always working to make Overleaf better by introducing new features and improving existing ones. Here are a couple of recent updates that we released this month:
A huge thank you to everyone who attended #FuturePub 10 on Monday for making it such a great event – it was the largest crowd we've ever had at #FuturePub, and I've never seen the pizza go so fast!
I started off the new year meeting mathematicians from all over America by representing Overleaf at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, GA. Overleaf was a first-time sponsor at JMM 2017.
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.
With our next #FuturePub just around the corner (it's next week!), we thought we take this opportunity to take a glimpse into the possible future of science and publishing tech a few days early. Step forward Figures, HackScience and HipDynamics - all three are winners of the latest Digital Science Catalyst Grant.
