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.

Just over four years ago we began one of our first collaborations – working with Stefan Kottwitz of the LaTeX Community forums and sites such as TeXample.net and pgfplots.net to provide a direct way for users of those sites to open up code examples directly in Overleaf (then called WriteLaTeX).
To get an idea of how it works, try clicking on the image below. It will open up in Overleaf for immediate editing online, just as if you'd clicked on the "Open in Overleaf" link on the example itself.

We’re excited to let you know that the two journals of the International Glaciological Society, Journal of Glaciology and Annals of Glaciology, are beginning a partnership with Overleaf. If you’re thinking of submitting to either of the journals, Overleaf is now a freely available option for writing your article.

At the start of November 2016 we launched our integration with ORCID, to enable users to link their Overleaf account with their ORCID iD to help securely establish their identity and provide a quick way to login to Overleaf using their ORCID credentials.
We're delighted to announce that as of today, 5,295 Overleaf users have linked their ORCID accounts with their Overleaf account – equivalent to almost 50 per day since the launch! It's great to see such a rapid adoption of ORCID by our users, and reflects the growing adoption of ORCID as a standard, persistent identifier for researchers around the world.
We're also excited to have received our first four ORCID badges (who doesn't like badges?!) for officially conforming to the ORCID standards for Authenticating, Collecting, Displaying and Connecting the ORCID iDs on Overleaf. Check out our badge gallery below :-)
